  •  I think you're over-analyzing the tip (0+ / 0-)

    Especially when you are writing satirical diaries, it's easy for people to miss the fact that it's satire, and either (a) they can start to quote your diary as fact elsewhere; or (b) question you and your sources (or lack thereof). Tagging in that case isn't so much for people to search, but to tip people who might question you or your diary. If you've noticed in comments, people will often say that they didn't "get" the diary, so they checked for a snark tag. You should never underestimate the number of people here who plain don't catch satire, and it can create sticky situations. So while people might not use the search function to look for "snark", they often rely on the tag to assist their understanding of your diary. Hope that helps. :-)
