Social media guru: If you challenge my postings then you just don’t understand (you smug prick)

Dr Mumbo posts this morning’s Twitter exchange between self-proclaimed “Online Communities Strategist, Goddess of the Social Media workshop” Laurel Papworth and Sound Alliance’s Ben Shepherd without further comment:  

The first link came a few days ago from Papworth, aka @silkcharm:

“Fanpages: List of top 100+ Australian Facebook Fan Pages http://bit.ly/dhjPDN”

Today Shepherd posted:

“so laurel papworth deletes blog comments that question what she says around the ‘top 100 facebook fan pages’ … that’s rather antisocial”

Silkcharm: “@Shepherd I haven’t deleted any comments. And if you use @SilkCharm I can find tweets easier :)”

Shepherd: “@SilkCharm your list is innaccurate … tim (Hardaker) posted a comment on the blog … it’s now gone. why do a list if it’s not correct? pointless.”

Silkcharm: “@Shepherd I realise you don’t understand collaboration and I’m cool with that :)”

Silkcharm: “@Shepherd I can see Tim‘s comment directly above yours. It’s NOT gone. And I used his comment to add InTheMix to the list.”

Shepherd: “@SilkCharm wasn’t there when i posted and neither were any of the sites … still a lot missing (Big Day Out etc – why is that?)”

Silkcharm: “@Shepherd … because I am adding them as people put them in comments. I leave the comment and add the site. is this hard to understand??”

Shepherd: “@SilkCharm quit being so condescending …”

Silkcharm: “@Shepherd apology accepted :)”

Shepherd: “@SilkCharm my question is why you’d have a list called ‘Top 100’ when it wasn’t fully accurate. “is this so hard to understand” oh please ..”

Silkcharm: “@Shepherd you really are an smug prick as your profile suggests. Works well for your clients does it? Antagonising everyone I mean… :P”

Shepherd: “@SilkCharm heh ‘smug prick’. question remains why do a top 100 when it’s just a random assortment of pages and not accurate?”
