Moderation of Morality Talk in Science Thread

Space exploration topics in just about any online community are inevitably derailed by "why isn't that money being used for worldpeace/hungrychildren/education" bleeding hearts, so that the original subject is lost in repetitive defense of space programs. May I request that if you have a bone to pick with money being spent on space exploration, that you post your own link with discussion on the issue, rather than interrupting a good science discussion with never-ending arguments about the antiphilanthropism of government-funded space flight?

Too Much Trolling

There seems to be a contingent of people on this website (we all know who they are) who feel the need to pollute threads that would be otherwise relevant, reasonable, and/or interesting. They come in, spew their opinion, and then proceed to turn thought-provoking material into a three ring circus. After having to sift through heaps of vitrol to find comments that even remotely relate to the topic at hand twice today, I've had enough. Your need to have your last word in a public meeting space that prides itself on civil, topical conversation is disgustingly revealing of your immaturity and arrogance. As a user of this site who is primarily a lurker, I want to make a statement on behalf of those people who come here for the fascinating content: If you feel the need to troll and argue, shut up already.

Let's argue in threads instead of in MetaTalk

Perhaps it's time to reconsider using MetaTalk to denounce single comments and only slightly contentious single posts. [More inside.]

Tracing IP of Account Login

Matt, you can actually IP trace logins, right? Not that I'm asking for any particular reason, like the most disgusting thing I've seen on MeFi being posted through an anonymous login's abuse or anything....

Rambling op-ed + dubious science + completely unrelated links + grinding axe

Rambling op-ed + dubious science + completely unrelated links + grinding axe = bad post.

Use of MetaTalk is getting out of hand.

The post below by five fresh fish is a joke. Use of MetaTalk is getting out of hand.

Too Much Meta-Criticism?

Hmmm. I think one or two levels (depending on how you think about it, that's how it is when dealing with meta-levels, see Princess Bride.) of metalevelness is enough. Critizing a stupid Metafilter FPP should be done in one MetaTalk post, not in an another FPP and Two Stupid MetaTalk posts.

My friend's EBay auction is probably not a good subject for a post.

How did this self-link get through?

Blatant self-link. How is it not obvious that this is not okay?!?

Give the gaddamned snide comments a break!

Give the gaddamned snide comments a break. It's a flippin' discussion and some tend to add anecdotals. Yes! That is what some people do. To add to DISCUSSION. Would you be like this during a conversation at the pub? To hell with being personable!

Removing Where's Dick Post

Uggh... How will this foster a discussion any different than the other "Where's Dick" threads we have had without having any linked supporting evidence.

New information with plenty of evidence to back it up?

PLEASE: If you're posting something related to the recent WTC attacks Current Situation, try and make sure it's new information? And if so, is the URL you are linking to contain new information with plenty of evidence to back it up?

Arrgggghhhhhh!!!!!

This sort of behavior has no place on MetaFilter.

This sort of behavior has no place on MetaFilter. I know that people are upset, but that's really no excuse.

Callout

Were the end of this thread a football match, yellow cards woudl be shown. Were it an ice hockey game, there'd be penalties. Within MetaFilter, it's really not on.

Callout

A loser responds to a thread i started

I don't appreciate the comment made by jpancake, so i have brought it her due to him/her not having an email address so i can abuse that person.

A callout that was moved elsewhere

Criminy ... can we at least confine our periodical links to stories published this century?
