What's the worst post you posted on the blue?

Lipstick Thespian points out that my latest post about clothes is "absolutely the dumbest thing I've ever read on Metafilter." They've got a point! I admit I've posted some real stinkers in my time that I would gladly take back. So I'm wondering, what are some things that you yourself have posted, that in retrospect you would take back, and why?

question about "there's already an active thread" deletions

The deletion of this thread ("An Open Letter to Paula Deen" by Michael William Twitty) made me wonder about one aspect of "kind of a double" deletions. [more inside]

chatfilter?

Are questions that ask for advice and perspectives from those who have gone through similar experiences now considered chatfilter? I think this question should have stayed up.

High heels are a physiological disaster.

I am surprised that the "are high heels sexist?" question was deleted as chatfilter, but the "what is 'female energy,' when it comes to cities?" question is staying up. [more inside]

Malicious AskMe

This question seems to be asking us to come up with the most malicious gossip we can think up about somebody the OP doesn't really know very well. I don't think this is something we should be aiding and abetting. [more inside]

Another group hate question

This "what's the matter with those people" question is especially hateful chatfilter. Since a mod has chosen to answer it, I assume it will not be deleted. Why not?

cortex, easy on the deletions!

This was not a good deletion. I think cortex pulls the trigger too quickly sometimes on the deletion of Ask Me posts and more restraint would be appreciated. [more inside]

We need to talk

What are the sources in the MetaFilter community network where if its not an FPP, doesn't fit into any other category and I don't really feel like framing it as an AskMe, can I vent, chat with friends&Mefites, and deal with something on my mind, in general?

Should I use the candlestick or the lead pipe?

A MeFite with no previous history on the site asked us to choose between (what many of us felt were) two rather bad choices based upon a potentially faulty assumption. Chatfilter ensues. [more inside]

When is there too much chat?

Here be a callout / question: Considering this question and the poster's history of chatfilter-esque questions, it leads me to wonder... can people get banned for extensive dubious use of Ask?

Was it something I said?

That's the THIRD time I write an answer in the green and click on the close tab button. No, it wasn't by mistake, I just thought better of it. Is it me??!? The last one was the one was a question by Goodgrief ("Keep a name from a previous marriage?"). I realize the question is a little chatfilterish, but I was going to post my opinion; like most others were doing. Then, right as I was writing an answer, I thought... What if they don't like that answer? What if everybody thinks I'm a jerk for spouting my opinion? This has happened a little too much to be comfortable.

boys are like this and girls are like that

Couch in the Ladies' Room. Am I the only one who thinks a chatfilter thread devoted to stereotyping and generalizing men and women is a bad use of AskMe? I'm more troubled that it's such a popular thread. What am I missing?

I'm puzzled by an AskMe that I think is chatfilter.

I tag chatty questions and they almost always get deleted. Sometimes, though, I think a question is chatty but it doesn't. That's fine of course - I might just be wrong. [more inside]

are medical questions above chatfilter?

Just curious and trying to understand the norms here: would this ask me medical question be chatfilter if instead of asking for reader's reactions to a given medication, it had asked for something else, say, "your experience with going to Stanford"?

I guess some thought "something" was right with my post...

Cortex, "weird" posts are now deleted? Where is that in the guidelines? Or, more specific, my "weird" posts are deleted, because I see weird posts on AskMeFi quite often that aren't deleted. [more inside]

Do Mefites get sick of eating Chatfilter?

In the "Do chinese people get sick of eating chinese food?" AskMe discussion, which might have had a germ of a worthwhile idea behind it, the OPP has essentially come out and said "my question is chatfilter."

Embrace this new feature, and take it to where it needs to go, where the world clamors for it to go -- OPTIONAL HYPOTHETICAL FILTER

Matthew: For a long time, I have been sad at the loss of HypotheticalFilter. When AskMe was young, such questions would arise. But those days are gone now, as the site matured. It's simply not done, you'd say. It floods the page with nonsense. It makes the real questions get lost. Still, I thought, I want to know how to dispose of a body, or how long we'd survive without the sun. Who would win in a fight? A squirrel, or a squirrel's weight in ants? [more inside]

So that interest doesn't flag...

"Chatfilter" is not one of the reasons included in the drop-down flagging menu on ask.me and I think it should be.

Can I ask you a question?

I propose that a new flag be added to AskMe posts: "OP has shown that he/she does not have a genuine interest in getting this question answered."
