Sweet, a link to an AskMe thread, with no explanation provided! MetaTalk solves another problem.

Let's chat! What do you love to chat about?

Well, he said it was awesome. Probably should've just flagged it fantastic.

Maybe he was trying to demonstrate an answer to this AskMe?

Heh, lgyre (the asker) must have prevented it from being deleted as chatfilter by not saying "I'll go first"... But yeah, a very chatty-sounding question has turned into a pretty cool thread of eclectic answers... This is a perfect example of how the line between "chatfilter" and "useful question" is a very thin one indeed.

I think it is funny that someone made an AskMe question that, summed up, just says, "What things do you really like?" And that people were defending it as a good question.

There is a thin green line between AskMe and chatfilter.

Like I said in Vronsky's buckets thread in the blue, it's clear we're in an administrative dead zone, so go nuts, people. I think I'll go post a question about whether it's okay to circumcise my cat.

This post is dangerou because it's a major spoiler for anything I might say in the future in AskMe. I'll have to branch out. I recommend that too. I forgot.

I agree, I'm awesome.

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple streudels
Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
These are a few of my favorite things

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favorite things

When the dog bites
When the bee stings
When I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don't feel so bad

I semi-defended the question in the AskMe thread. "Why" you ax? I get to talk about me!

Oh, jonson, you just say that because it's true.

I'd/will participate in said thread!

I personally attack every one of you for that thing you said in a thread that time.
I always wanted to, but had been scared civil.

I think I'll go post a question about whether it's okay to circumcise my cat.

But, to make it more chatfiltery, you should ask, "What do you think my cat will be thinking and feeling after I circumcise him? Will he hate me?"

(assuming your cat is male... because if you're going to circumcise a female cat, that would just cause outrage)

I favorited both the thread in question AND the first comment. What does that say about me?

Wait, don't answer that.

Fuck I hate using "favorite" as a verb." Will someone please shoot me in the face with a bazooka? kthxbye.

This is where I wish we could see the flags. I am curious if there are more flags on the question, or on the answers for not having answered the question.

I presume, jaydar, that this place is where you think it should go?

jaydar, please explain your posts next time.
