Don't Mess With "Don't Mess With Texas"

It's getting tedious seeing wfrgms bring out the same old "Don't Mess With Texas" derail one more time. [more inside]

Is this really necessary?

I'm confused on the etiquette rules regarding when it's okay to push a thread off into lunacy. I was hoping that the pirates thread could be interesting (although the OP was a bit lacking), but it instantly turned into a useless flamefest. Is it too late to delete all the pirate songs and idiocy? Can we maybe agree on a brief moratorium to let threads develop before we turn them into Thomas Pynchon novels?

This question is great, but the answers are not

This is a fine example of a decent question and good responses made much less satisfying because they are interspersed with responses from assholes who are just posting to see their names.

This AskMe thread is getting a bit... ermmm... heated, and off topic.

This is not supposed to be a theology debate.

This is not supposed to be a theology debate. Although I don't mind walking the line because I am interested in people's reactions and interpretations of a natural phenomenon. But I don't want my first FPP yanked because people couldn't at least flame on topic and the topic is HIV, how it works and what it looks like.

Enough with the pancakes and haiku, already.
