So uhh, some
of the discussion in this particular trainwreck of a thread seems pretty way out of line to me. I understand folks are weirded out by the story in the link but I think some folks should consider not going quite so over the top in the future in how they handle criticizing entire fanbases. That was an extremely volatile accusation to throw out with such a wide net.

ought not to have been deleted. The reason given: "This post was deleted for the following reason: Seems like an interesting and pretty fucked-up case, but most of the links here seem like they're kind of filler material and if the meat of the post is essentially "read this legal PDF" it might need to be presented a lot more in those terms, or with some good long-form journalism or analysis. Otherwise we've just got folks arguing about rape charges yet again. -- cortex" [more inside]

I have sent a query to admin, but to help me get a better idea of what the MeFi community (overall) thinks, and the perspective they come from, I'm looking for feedback and discussion about why my FPP
was deleted. I'm looking for reasons why, not simple statements of objection. I'm not looking to respond or debate with anyone. Unless a technical question is asked of me, I probably won't respond. I would sincerely just like to read and take or leave what I find. Thank you. [more inside]

WTF, MetaFilter? Especially after two epic threads about rape experience and not knowing whether to trust other people, it seems, I don't know. Unwise? To post
about this animation that's rather the antithesis of all that work. I'm really just not getting it. [more inside]

I wanted to say something about the discussion happening in this
AskMe, but in a way that does not derail the thread itself. So, here I am. [more inside]

Well, askme got served with a doozy tonight
and I think it's safe to say it didn't go well. It's not just the completely awful legal advice being dispensed, or the attempt to frame this question as a solely moral one that disturbed me, but the seeming justification of murder (and referencing religion to reason away that murder) that made me shudder.

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.

I had my finger on the button of a new MeTa thread, ready to congratulate Matt on having the discretion to NOT delete the Rape Haiku post. Unfortunately, that's a thread that will never exist

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.

A Rape In Cyberspace
. Posted for the attention of our glorious facilitator and factotum, but also for people who've seen MeFi grow over these past months. I've been on LambdaMOO since 1994; I missed the "Bungle Affair", but am good friends with one of the victims; I've seen the throes of an online community struggle to regulate itself and its growth. Not that I'm suggesting the same approach, but it's good deep background.
