I do not WANT to be exposed to anus.

This is not good. Angry modem may deny doing this himself (although it was posted only 13 minutes after this), or may not. Worst case: some even worse asshat(s) who considers modem a role model will show up specifically to cause trouble. I do not WANT to be exposed to anus.

The craiglist mods will delete this right? So why bring it here for more people to see?

Seriously guys, I don't see 95% of all the snarky comments and ad hominems that you drag into metatalk, until you link to them here. That goes to 100% for things posted on other websites. Quite a logic gap here.

I agree with Wendell that this should have been brought here and appreciate him doing so. At the same time, I flagged it as "prohibited" at Craig's (calls for violence, jokingly or not, should be prohibited).

Sure, the policy is that people who do shit off metafilter--it shouldn't affect their standing here. However, when it's a post calling for actions AGAINST metafilter members, especially at meetups? I say ban them for good, regardless of who it is.

Under the headline "crash a metafilter.com meetup" it posted the details of the meetup (time/place/address) along with "free food and drinks" and suggests people show up and "be a dick and punch someone in the face". It singled out Wendell and said visitors should ask for angry_modem.

ohh...that sucks. (maybe change the time/place of the meetup by email, just in case?)

but was it really angry?

11/26: Crash a Metafilter.com meetup! 6pm, free drinks and food

Friday, November 26, 6 pm, at Irv's Burgers in West Hollywood, go ruin a quaint meeting of online buddies who are coming together to discuss all manner of pretentious things. They will be purchasing a large batch of drinks and food, and as such, this is your chance to drink, eat, be a dick, and punch someone in the face. Make sure to call Wendell names, as he is an ugly, overweight, unfunny rube. Make sure to ask for 'Angry Modem', as he is supposed to be attending.

this is in or around Irv's Burgers in West Hollywood

I do not deny being ugly, overweight or a rube, but UNFUNNY?!?

IMO, what happens in MetaFilter, craigslist AND Santa Monica Blvd., requires Level 3 Virus Containment.

I shall now fade into the background and work very hard to avoid being provoked.

"#mefi-grown prank: : "Show up, run up drink tab, punch X in face!"

I'd call this thuggery or fascism : at best nasty and, at worst, an exhortation to criminal acts.

Flat out.

As for "Man, sometimes you guys are a prissy bunch of bitches. Not to mention ugly, overweight rubes." - well, ringleaders need sycophants and waterboys.

Well now, I hope I never have the displeasure of meeting any Mefite in person. Since that would lead to violence.

angry modem is looking for attention, folks. Don't give it to him. Maybe what you should do instead is to email matt your problems with modem and hope that matt does what's best for the site. I'm telling you, don't react to him, don't give him the satisfaction of knowing that he's bothering you.

What would you call real thuggery and fascism? Are human tongues enough or does it require knowledge of Klingon to adequately express such concepts?

If anything, this just makes me think that angry modem is even cooler... He's out there, on the edge... like Hunter Thompson, without the writing skills, or the humor. Or Henry Miller, without the sex. Or the writing skills. Or Ozzy Osbourne, without the money. Or the verbal skills. Anyway, you see what I mean.

"What would you call real thuggery and fascism?" - Krrrlson, do you need a history lesson ? I think you're capable of a suitable autodidact on that one.

Calls for personal attacks against political dissenters are a time-honored tactic of authoritarians - whether from the right or from the left.

Please don't play dumb. I know you're not.

Political dissenters? This is about political dissent? Can I have a piece of whatever it is you are smoking? Because it *must* be good.

I like a good history lesson, but you my friend are in dire need of intervention.

P.S. That's good matteo, you should add that to your arsenal of persuasive arguments - Likudgirl and KKKrlson are getting kind of old.
