All satire eventually becomes part of the landscape - those attacked will learn to laugh at it, and get points for being seen to laugh at themselves and appreciate the joke. The jokes will get repeated over and over again, until they become just more background noise. HIGNFY has never had any power save to state the obvious - ditto MTW - and while it is sometimes necessary to say that the emperor has no clothes on, the fact remains - the fool remains a fool, and the emperor remains the emperor.
