I've gotten a lot of useful answers to my AskMe questions, but this question

Can we have less comments like this

This AskMe thread
is just fantastic. A not-simple question with so many great, empathetic, caring suggestions from people who were at one point up a similar creek trying to fashion any sort of paddle. POSITIVE THREAD CALLOUT. EVERYBODY HUG.

Regarding the thread
about the new "Avengers" trailer: for fuck's sake can people please, for the love of god, quit it with feigning surprise that adults might be interested in such a thing? See comments by Dragoness and Trochanter for specifics.
If you are surprised, genuinely surprised, you haven't been paying enough attention to pop culture over the past thirty years to have an informed opinion. You sound like an old person.
And if you're not surprised, if the pose is just assumed for the sake of crafting good snark, you're threadshitting.
I'd like to draw everyone's attention to the recent thread here
concerning the Slactivist blog. [more inside]

Odd callout: Are people really uncreative that they can't figure out what to add to their grilled cheese
sandwich? Its chatfilter. Its beyond chatfilter... Its asking if we can write every itteration of cheese+bread+some special ingredient down. Plus, this has been covered before
. Seriously, do we need to overthink a plate of cheese, bread, and butter a second time because someone can't search?
Can we stop with the "Those people are so stupid" poll posts? [more inside]
Blazecock Pileon's relentless browbeating of anyone who is not a cheerleader for Apple and general bad behaviour whenever Microsoft is mentioned in the iPad thread

There's always some drive-by snideness any time someone posts an AskMe post that mentions education in any of the humanities. This question from last night
is an entirely valid question and is in good faith. Some of the answers, not so much. [more inside]

Yesterday's Craig Ferguson thread
was kicked off with a comment by argedee: "I could be that funny too, with a laugh track like that." The thread turned into a discussion about laugh tracks and whether Craig uses one or not. In his monologue last night, Craig addressed "rumors on the internet" that his audience laughter isn't real. Argedee got called out on late night TV! [more inside]

No, you're not a kind person, and you haven't faced anyone threatening. You are so full of shit that it isn't even amusing on metafilter.

You can take your own sanctimonious smugness and shove it deep and far up inside your poophole.
