Mission Accomplished

Is there a point to this other than to encourage a pissfest?

Axe-grindy Bush post.

This is a terrible, axe-grinding, (self-admitted) newsfilter post with editorializing in both the text of the post and the tags.

Hey, my monthly political hobbyhorse is recurring!

Axegrindfilter.

"Hey, my monthly political hobbyhorse is recurring! C'mon guys, it's important!"

If we have to play with the "party" as metaphor, I throw the relentless proslytizers out before I bother with folks who call each other bad names.

a grotesque lack of civility in the ad homonym realm

Thread 50250 should be used to indict, convict, and ban several Members for a grotesque lack of civility in the ad homonym realm.

Civility in Canadian politics thread.

Hildegarde, please clarify. Am I, or anyone else in this thread a "homophobic fuck"?

Please keep your politics out of Ask Metafilter questions

"Criminal incompetence is probably not an impeachable offense, but something has to be done about Bush." Please keep your politics out of Ask Metafilter questions. (And another.) It tends to attract the wrong kind of answers.

Following the posting guidelines

I guess we are not even going to pretend to follow the guidelines for posts anymore.

Bush Go George Bush FPP callout

Could we just get it over with and delete this childish tit for tat response?

Stop being jerks, especially outside of politics threads

Consistency in standards, and the lack thereof. Since the election, MeFi has gotten a lot calmer, and a lot more readable. Much of these is surely do to the deletion of highly partisan comments and threads, but it seems like some people aren't getting the message. Snarky FPPs like this provoke obnoxious replies like part 3 of this.

Is there a viable way to confine this crap to the political threads?

Unofficial MetaFilter Op-Ed About Political Content in FPPs

"How hard is it to articulate a simple policy about political content? Matt has not done that, and needs to."

Which prompts another unofficial MetaFilter op-ed from y6y6y6.........

Politics Callout

May I say that if there must be politics in AskMe, papercake's scrupulously value-neutral question is the way to do it? And thank you, SidheDevil, for the brief teacher's-ruler-across-the-knuckles that kept us on topic.

Civility and politics.

Can we please separate political passion from blood lust?

"How long will there will cowards logged into Metafilter?"

ParisParamus, 4 am JST : "How long will there will cowards logged into Metafilter?"

ParisParamus, 10:37 am JST : "Metafilter: keeping as many liberal and pacifist a-holes inside, so they do the least amount of damage possible in the real world."

Is this thread signal?

I'm not trying to make a personal callout, nor am I Chicken Littling, but I wonder if this thread is of the more interesting variety of political threads, or if it is more of a simple "gotcha." For those who don't think that all politics FPP's are necessarily noise, is this thread signal?

The Left shall rise again?

This is probably pointless, so here goes nothing:

"Instead of South vs North, this time it will be Right vs Left.

Sounds good to me. I doubt the world will shed too many tears if these narrow-minded, short-sighted, self-serving fools start getting special deliveries in their mailboxes. What's that? You mean you didn't order the bouquet of plastique and nails?"


This is repugnant. I agree with Civil_Disobedient's politics more often than not, but this is beyond the pale.

Jokes in AskMe are no good

Can we please make it stop? It's bad enough that we really want a 100+ post thread about same sex marriage every day. Do we have to drag it into AskMe?

Stop HateBushFilter

Can we stop with the HateBushFilter posts that are a blight on the the front page daily?

Just because it's "another Coulter thread"

Hi, Jack. Just because it's "another Coulter thread" doesn't mean raysmj ought to piss all over it with his off-topic opinions on proper journalistic style. How many other threads have been similarly derailed by snarks on the writing style or site design of the linked page?

A litterbox for pooflinging

Groan. Please. Stop.

Maybe we can set up a litterbox someplace where the concerned parties can fling the usual turds at each other till their batteries run down. These FPPs don't even seem to be conducive to discussion anymore. Agree to disagree already.

Civility in politics threads: Bushtard.

Bushtard? I'm not a fan of Bush, but this is really getting old. Any suggestions for how to discourage this method of posting?

Bad Bush thread.

Boy, is this Bush link ever a bad thread.

Politics and demographics.

Ideology versus Scalability; Conservative versus Liberal; Kant's Categorical Imperatives versus the Scottish "Common Sense" philosophers; Yanks versus Brits; Democrats versus Republicans; Kudos from Sardine; and startling Mefi Demographic information!
