I know we do newsfilter stuff here sometimes, but this is scraping the bottom of the barrel. Seriously, how different would this post be then either of these posts?

Gas prices are high. I wonder how much gas is going to go up?

OMG Bugs! Bubonic plague is some evil stuff -- the facts from the horses' mouth

One news source + 2 blog links does not a FPP make.

Gas prices are going up the plague oh noes!

it's pretty lame, esp. since they didn't even say if it was anything in the article, it was basically a fluff piece.

I won a bet that some idiot would post that. So..... Thank you very much BigLankyIdiot. Only $1 though, so I can't buy you a beer.

Well . . . it's deleted, and that's good.

Yes. the best thing about that thread is that it's deleted.

I see that this thread is still open, however...

Indeed it is. Someone should do something about that.

heaven forbid a thread should be left open, then absolutely no one might be inconvenienced, and we can't have that.

Did it ever occur to you fuckers that Matt and Jess are just too busy deleting comments, willynilly, to have time to close this thread? Huh? Huh?

I suggest posting something incredibly offensive and then having everyone flag it. That should work.

Oh, lighten up! I and several others thought it was a diverting discussion.

y6y6y6, Blow Me. Don't like my thread/post? That's fine. Call me an idiot? You're acting like an asshole. You don't know anything about me.

It's 8:20 PM and they STILL haven't said what the object really was.

I think bigmusic's bubonic plague 'post' is pretty good actually. Is that wrong?

To the nice person who used to have me as a contact, but recently dropped me : If it was because of this message, it was a joke. None of you are fuckers. Especially you, whoever you are.

The OP is gone, so I guess this is the only place on the 'filter where I can find out--what was it? It was 24 hours ago... What was the suspicious thing?

It was a test.
