Hampster dance dupe deleted September 19, 2006 1:44 PM   Subscribe

"hampster dance" just got deleted. it did look (after 17 comments) as though it was about to spiral seriously out of control, but matt could have at least waited an hour or two.. ok, fine, i'll go read about the military coup in thailand.

it's old and I think reklaw was putting everyone on by posting an ancient website like that.

Why should I wait an hour or two?

Do we really need to have a metatalk thread every effing time a asshatt-wankfest thread gets deleted?

Why would he have waited? Either something deserves to be deleted or it doesn't.

Not to be snarky, but what was the point of this post? Do you have some reasoning as to why you think it should have been left up? I think I'll stop typing now before I do get truely snarky.

In all seriousness: I'm so curious as to why that was posted in the first place. reklaw, can you enlighten us?

Dersins, those chips were so good. I'm really sorry I didn't get to Mongolia man, but husbands are expensive.

now i'll never have a pointy hat. and since i just quit my job, i'll never be able to afford to buy my own, either.

I suspect that when a wankfest gets quashed on the blue, a new one needs to pop up here to take it's place.

Intriguing that you chose the loss of a post about Hamsterdance to defend as your first post in metatalk, dminor.

It's the law of conservation of wank.

matt - i don't know.. to see maybe if someone would post an animated gif of the upcoming apocalypse.
posted by dminor at 2:39 PM on September 19, 2006


ah, ok then. I think this is settled.

Next time, please to be explaining your reason for a post to metatalk in the post itself.

Can we enact a new rule that all Metatalk threads have to fucking make sense? As in, under what strange reality would a double ever not be deleted on sight?
