I think this question
violates the spirit of individual choice, and isn’t really appropriate for AskMeFi. [more inside]
Feature request: Setup AskMeFi to have a one question per two weeks limit. Then, create a separate page that allows people who have already asked their question to have their extra question displayed and voted on. (more inside)
When attempting to view "fantastic questions and answers suggested by members" in AskMeFi, I receive a ColdFusion error.
An interesting post
that became ChatFilter. A subsequent post
that IS chatfilter. What bothers me is the trend. More questions are becoming increasingly open-ended. (I don't think that occhiblu's phrasing was particularly wrong, but I think that a lot of people, just because they're guys, thought that their opinion was useful) Which allows people to simply take a stab in the dark, offer their "off the cuff" insight, or otherwise just give an unresearched opinion. IMHO, this sort of thing defeats the purpose of an answer-oriented site.
Um, three piggybacks in one thread?
Excessive, and really unfair to the OP, or just another part of being in a community environment?
It was a philosophical question
that could have produced some genuinely interesting ideas/commentary. Not every question on AskMeFi needs to have a immediately definable solution to be considered a good question. Moreover, despite it reading like a term paper question, it hasn't been addressed by most, if any, publications and answers to these types of questions can lead to greater understanding of political and social phenomena. Quit trying to make AskMeFi so damn practical as to eliminate thought.
I realize this callout is pointless since the the poster in question is so blatantly abusive and off-topic, but I thought it might be necessary to create this thread so the original anonymous poster could have an additional thread in AskMeFi so we could help him.
