Calling someone a rapist could be libelous

Calling someone a rapist on the sole basis of an accusation made to a reporter is wrong -- and could be libelous. The allegation against Girls Gone Wild producer Joe Francis is horrible and contains a lot of persuasive details, but that doesn't mean it's true.

What have been your best and worst links posted?

A what-makes-a-good-post question I'd like to see other MetaFilter dinosaurs answer along with me: What are the best and worst links you ever inflicted on the front page?

False anchors give wrong impression

A minor nit, but it's misleading to use a false anchor tag in a link, because people will wrongly assume it's legitimate. The Christian Science Monitor did not declare neoconservatives to be their enemies.

a new kind of selflink

Posting a link to a couple of paragraphs that talk about you is an entirely new subspecies of self link. Join me, and together we can smother it in infancy.

Tired of the prison rape discussion

The next time someone posts with glee about a criminal being subjected to violent penile colonization, turning the discussion immediately into a referendum on the subject of prison rape (#1 #2), I hope that person has to spend quality pound-in-the-ass time in MetaTalk as rodii's bitch.

Mob-style takedown

Take a trip with me down the Riviera (#1, #2, #3, #4), where no comment is complete without a little vicious personal invective.

Broke the mold after they made 'im

It isn't every day we get a no-email, no-URL new member who develops an instant outspoken loathing for MetaFilter, calls us Nazis, and devotes himself with great passion to demonizing liberals. So join me in welcoming Real9 before it's too late.

Etiquette of double post notifications.

Let it be resolved that from this point forward, all double post notifications must be handled like you are stoned. Do I hear a second?

I am too good for this, and I am telling you that now.

Of all the cheap rhetorical tactics employed here, I think my favorite is "you people are sick and this conversation is beneath me, so I'm not participating except to note this fact" (#1, #2, #3, #4).

Stop editorializing on front page

Dear longtime visitors to MetaFilter: Don't do this.

Article too old

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

Lincoln told no yo momma jokes against Douglass

"Can't you folks simply address an issue and tell us what you think without attacking the poster rather than what has been posted?" A few threads have featured variations on this sentiment, so I figured the subject was worth a longer look here.

intentionally extending existing thread with new links

Posting a new link to intentionally extend an existing day-old thread is inappopriate.
