You sound just like a _____!

There is currently a practice across Metafilter, especially within Metafilter proper (the Blue) and Metatalk (the Grey) of making personal attacks against other users that I feel undermines the community aspect of the site. The attacks I am concerned with most often take the form of ugly insinuations that the user is deliberately derailing, trolling or using common tactics which are allegedly known to be popular with (in alphabetical order, thee could be more, these are all I could think of when I set about making this thread):
  • Anti-Semites
  • Bigots
  • Conservatives
  • Misogynists
  • MRAs
  • PUAs
  • Racists
  • Redditors (specifically, usually The Red Pill subreddit)
  • TERFs
  • Transmisogonists

Open Letter to the Mods

Thank you, Matt, Jessamyn, PB and Cortex. I don't idolize you. I don't always agree with you. Sometimes your decisions confuse me. Sometimes they anger me. Sometimes your ban hammer needs fine-tuning. More often than not, you are spot on. But no matter what, every little thing every one of you does is analyzed to the nth degree, and I wouldn't want your job. So, thank you for doing the dirty work so I can come in here and obsessively reload every day.
