For the record, this was heard previously, but never (unless someone can correct me) seen. [more inside]

Yes it was snarkish, but given that as far as I can tell this video hadn't even been made on the dates previous postings about the audio mashup and artist occurred, the accusations of doubling are flippant and badly researched.

Delete it as snark, but please don't sully good snark with accusations of phantom double posting.

So you'd rather be seen as a douchebag who mocks other people's FPPs instead of an incompetent wang?
Why can't you be both?

So what you're saying is, the deleted message should say "Please don't shit on the front page to make a silly point that Partial Law made in a snarky comment five hours earlier."

Otherwise, the deletion's ok?

Comedy gold.

I'd love to see the pageview stats on deleted threads that get posted to MetaTalk. I bet many if not all of them get more eyeballs than the average valid Blue post.

Partial Law, your fantastic comment was probably too clever for a lot of people who read it in the ensuing five hours. The importance of including a link cannot be understated.

But, seriously, I'm cool with it all. Thanks jessamyn.

I'd like to take this opportunity to ask the admins to please feature e-mails in their profiles, so that we, the paying and contributing members of this here web page, don't have to constantly run to MeTa and post silly little exercises in hubristic pettiness for all to see and mock.
