What’s More Annoying: Special HTMLG Self-Reflexive Edition

What’s more annoying:

How Amy McDaniel never misses an opportunity to remind us that she studied with David Foster Wallace, which somehow endowed her with a magical (foolproof) grammar wand?

OR

How I never miss an opportunity to come across as a rotten pretentious elitist who loves the sound of his own voice yet can’t seem to talk about anything of interest or importance other than worn out concepts like experimental writing?

OR

How often HTMLG discusses Tao Lin?

OR

The fact that Chelsea Martin is still on the roster, even though she hasn’t posted since the great Wiggergate fiasco?

OR

How Justin Taylor, the inventor of the “craven self-promotion” label, which (btw) appears to have been discontinued, can somehow always find a way of self-promoting in every post?

OR

How Jimmy Chen seems both extremely smart and utterly incapable of playing any role other than class clown?

OR

The way Roxane Gay champions good ole fashion storytelling, the way regular folks do?

OR

How Ken Baumann is so smart and handsome and successful?

OR
