Too much hate. Why can't people just be nice? [more inside]

Listen.

How about when you ask a question, you actually be nice when people respond? [more inside]

Nothing and Nthing

Whence Nthing? Isn't the word "seconding" meant to include multiple votes of support? Is this something peculiar to Ask Metafilter?

Metafilter: Get your own blog

"Get your own blog" is a stupid thing to say to a member of a site whose masthead reads "Community weblog." [more inside]

On the internet everyone knows you are a wedge of spite

Yes it is a double, but it is also good example of how one or two cranky farts can totally change the tone of a thread. [more inside]

Metafilter: civil discourse

This sequence of comments (subject matter aside) embodies what I've always liked about Metafilter.

IRL, do we introduce other MeFites as friends, acquaintances, or what?

I was out at Jillian's in Boston yesterday, and I saw another MeFite there who I recognized from a previous MeFi meetup. Thing is, I didn't remember her real name, and I'm not sure that she'd remember mine. Should I have said hi, and if so, what would be the rules on having friends of MeFites meet each other? Do we introduce other MeFites as friends, acquaintances, or what?

How to say "thanks Ask MetaFilter"?

How to say "thanks Ask MetaFilter"
I recently asked a question and and amazed with the help I recieved. Should I just smile, post in the thread (but who would see it?) or email individual posters? Or just shut up?

Opinions, not agenda

I humbly and publicly request a moratorium on referring to opinions as agendas. The linked thread is full of this. Not only does it stifle any sort of honest discussion, debate, or genuine and warranted insulting, it also seems slightly fascistic, Fox News-ish, and embarrassing.

a thread about a lazy, fu...

In light of the recent "pat-yourself-on-the-back" thread, I just resisted the urge to type a snarky reply to a thread about a lazy, fu... ahem... a recent thread here in metatalk. I invite you to please resist the urge yourself.

Can't well all just get along?

Can't well all just get along? To an extent I can accept the 14k+ crowd misbehaving for awhile — at least till they pick-up on 'Metaquette' — but others should know better than to feed the trolls or fan flamebait.

Mefi faux pas? aaron bared his soul, and the results are not surprising.

Personal attacks reducing contributions

I just wanted to point out that I just finished writing a pretty thoughtful message in response to some of the comments in this thread, but decided, before I hit submit, that I really didn't feel up to the onslaught of personal attacks that I'd have to endure because of my opinion. So I pressed the backpage button instead.

Not that it matters, really. Maybe I'm just being thin-skinned. Some might say that if I felt strongly enough about my opinion, I'd be able to suffer the slings and arrows of the opposition. I dunno. In fact, I don't know if I even feel up to the kind of response this message is going to get.

But how many other MeFi users are doing the same as me? How many have just given up completely? This is how the blow-hards and the flame-warriors take over.

wank wank wank. ignore and move on.

There seems to be a lot of bickering going on lately, and it's getting worse all the time. Too many people are starting to complain about other peoples posting habits, style whatever you want to call it. I'm Australian and don't care about Americas elections, yet i haven't complained about all the posts, about the election. I choose to ignore them as should other people with any posts they don't like or don't want to talk about.
