Self Linking considered harmful...to poster! August 1, 2000 1:05 AM   Subscribe

I would like to propose that in the event that someone uses metafilter to blog their own site, a pre-selected jury of their metafilter peers be allowed to enter the offender's domicile and beat the offender's computer(s) into complete submission. I respectfully suggest a Louisville Slugger would be best suited for this, however I have heard that a well balanced ax handle would likely be a competant substitute.

I think the reason no one gets slammed for linking their own stuff on the front page is no one cares anymore.

Or more appropriately, no one cares enough to get entrenched in the 'stop being a rules fascist' conversations that always seem to follow.

Are matters really improved by having someone else link the same rant?

not in the least damn bit. that post was offensive without even having to *read* the article, it was self-linking and we went through this the LAST time someone decided to highlight his own pathetic relations with women, and of *course* it had to be Zach who reposted it----jesus god.

if not wanting to deal with any of that crap makes me a rules fascist, i will take the title willingly :>

I got here too late to be on Steve's side. Bummer.

I won't start it here again.
