monkey king

You can take your own sanctimonious smugness and shove it deep and far up inside your poophole.

loquacious, maybe you should relax and not be so violent.

Backstabbing is not conducive to intellectual discourse

Malor - your arguments have to stand on their own merits without bringing other people's names up. [more inside]

So a murderer walks into a bar...

The filesystem jokes in this Reiser trial thread struck me as being in particularly bad taste. [more inside]

Seriously?

And the black majority went on to demonstrate to the world - leaving no uncertaintly - that they were utterly incapable of running their own affairs.

Not funny.

This post on breast ironing has turned into a nightmare of inappropriate comments, jokes, and general trolling. [more inside]

Suffer the complainers in MeTa.

Will all those who think the YFZ Ranch FPP is a "yawn" or "not the best of the web" please complain about it in this thread rather than in the blue. Thank you.

Learning to resist the dismiss

It's not OK to dismiss an entire country because you couldn't resist making a lame joke. [more inside]

Or you could just not say anything.

If you feel the need to call the OP a douchebag, attack his phrasing, or lecture him for "body image baggage," please do it in this MeTa instead of shitting in the question.

Can't tell who said what

I thought we were progressive

Normally I don't say anything, but... the discussion about fat folks forced to fly on SouthWest and whether we need to buy another ticket on ask strikes me as fat bashing, which is not really what the poster asked for. [more inside]

LOLMORMONS

Come on y'all this is embarassing. I don't think anyone would appreciate getting their religion bashed this way and Mormon's LOVE that man. Believe me, I know some. Totally uncalled for.

All I am saying, is give posts a chance

At first I was kinda surprised the video in 67602 got dumped on in comments. There is nothing intrinsically bad here. It's actually rather professionally done, it feels very much like something that was produced for television. I strongly suspect the fault here is with the FPP. [more inside]

Poorly constructed or blatantly inaccurate.

I have a problem with people making posts here that are blatantly inaccurate just for the sake of making a political point. [more inside]

ND¢'s two cents cause a shitstorm. News at 11.

ND¢, generally I really like you, but it's clear that you are being a dick for the sake of being a dick, notwithstanding your attempts at justifying that as your real and valid opinion. All you had to say was "yeah, maybe my joke was a little offside" and no one here would have busted your balls over it. Just be a decent human being with a little respect and understanding and things don't have to turn into a shitpile.

"Your world is filled with non-people."

That little drive-by rant made you sound like the biggest pompous asshole in mefi history, buddy. It really did. Ethereal Bligh, stop this. Your continual personal insults and belittling are neither appropriate nor conducive to discussion or community.

clarifying mystery links

Occasionally links without any real description are posted to the front page. It would be nice if any user could add a short description that would appear when you moused over the link, so users don't have to click on eight different links to find out what a post is about. [more inside]

What the world need now is crap, more crap?

ok, flag it as crap we know you want to. But do we both need you flagging it as crap and then posting a crap "flagged as crap" message in the allegedly crappy thread? Comment should be flagged as masturbatory noise.

Is this normal, sanctioned behaviour?

MetaFilter seems rife with religious intolerance and disinformation under the guise of intelligent conversation. Is this a flaw or a feature of Metafilter?

Give it up.

I am so goddamn tired of being rickrolled in the comments. I think somebody spilled some 4chan on my metafilter.

Hi, I'm From MetaFilter, And I'm Here To Help

I find myself fascinated by unhindered's "contributions". Which is to say that I find them annoying as hell, pseudoscientific at best, and skirting the boundaries of acceptable behavior on MeFi.

Today's edition of what irks me: Hijacking threads with unsupported claims of doubleness. Either put up or shut up--don't shit on good threads just because you read boing boing and have a bad memory.
