interrobang is being a real asshole today.
posted by interrobang to Etiquette/Policy at 1:50 PM (109 comments total) 2 users marked this as a favorite

And I'm sorry. I've realized lately that for the past six months or so, everything I've said on this site has been relentlessly negative and/or insulting.

I first became obsessed with mefi because of the lengthy, reasoned, well-thought-out commentary here, and I've been falling into a one-liner snark-shitting hole as the years have gone by. I promise to do better.

Please support your callouts with links. If you make accusations of assholery without providing evidence, it makes it difficult for us to break out the tar and feathers understand what you are talking about.

Also, links to assholery as usually entertaining.

I find that I can now restrain from making snarky comments in AskMe on all occasions except when people ask inane questions about quackery like toxin cleansing footbaths and ear candling and the like. Then I just... can't... help... myself... must... snark.

I'm sorry too.

Sorry, that was kinda boastful, wasn't it?
And, I mean, I have made fun of my girlfriend's roommate's mother (and, I guess, her roommate) for believing in totally retarded psychic bullshit. Plus, the psychic she was raving about was played by Ted Danson. I mean, I think she kinda deserved it. Do I get asshole mitigation points for only gently mocking rather than going full-bore?

I first became obsessed with mefi because of the lengthy, reasoned, well-thought-out commentary here, and I've been falling into a one-liner snark-shitting hole as the years have gone by.

Is it just me or is this true of the general direction of mefi lately? I like snark but nothing is worse than the unfunny kind now so ubiquitous that it makes a lot of threads unreadable. I don't know if it's the exploding membership, the advent of publicly visible favorites, general look-at-meism, or a personal delusion I'm suffering from, much less what might be done about it. Sometimes it all seems pretty high-pitched and desperate, like one of those light novels set in the South or in a small English village where everyone is lovably eccentric and one zany magical thing after another happens but fairly soon you feel like shooting yourself in the heart rather than risking having it aggressively warmed yet again. At its worst it's like one of those hideously unwatchable Neil LaBute things where everyone is constantly saying things so incredibly mean you wonder why anyone talks at all in lieu of attaching razors to their genitalia and fucking each other to death. Either way, ugh.

It's very nice that you posted this, though, interrobang. As you well know, I love you just the way you are.

I feel about all the snark favoriting the same way I feel about laugh-tracks on television. It's distracting and annoying sure but it also takes away the sudden sense of discovery and surprise essential to humor. Sometimes I'll see a comment's +9 favorites first and go in with higher expectations than the comment deserves. I might have found it funny or amusing if it hadn't already accumulated a mefi laugh track.

I think if I was presented the opportunity, I'd vote against keeping the favorites system.

I have and do appreciate the feedback. How could I not? But it does seem to be distracting.

Another part of it, for me, seems to be a sort of general typing fatigue or burnout. I remember carefully taking time to write much more and in more detail about things - but perhaps my hindsight is distorted. I guess I still write a lot, but perhaps it seems easier, or I've grown slightly more succinct.

Perhaps there used to be more time to consider a reply and less churn and less topics when there were less active members. Now it seems like have I do a lot more obsessive previewing to keep abreast of the thread and keep from tripping up amongst the other comments. (I don't begrudge new users, though, I'm just remarking on the increased activity.)


But I think it's important to also observe that the bristly snarkiness of MetaFilter also serves to protect itself. Time and time again I've heard that people are terrified to post here. I was, too. It's intimidating and daunting.

While that's very bad for the delicate snowflakes amongst us with much to contribute, it's very good at keeping away idiots and jackasses. Our spam content is very very nearly zero. The links and topics always current, yet unique and interesting, and even the commentary - between the snark - is really rather good.

Compared to the likes of Digg, reddit, fark and many other "community" linkblogs, MetaFilter to me still remains an edifying bastion and dominion apart from the rest.

interrobang, if it makes any difference, even your contributions that are beneath the level that you would like to see yourself contributing at, you are still better off than many loud posters here. This is purely anecdotal, but I don't think I have noticed you behaving badly. So I think you are being a little hard on yourself. As long as you keep your photostream interesting, I think you get a pass anyhow.

I'm 99% sure it's the $5 entry fee that keeps the trolls and spammers away, rather than the abrasive atmosphere. It mostly keeps children out too. I baselessly suspect that YouTube comments are mostly caused by children, rather than out and out idiots.

Very happy in San Francisco. This city is awesome. I should have come here 5 years ago. It's going to ruin living anywhere else, for me.

Dave: I'm sorry. Well, in rehearsal you sounded like you meant it, it sounded like you were actually remorseful about what you had done, but this was pretty, pretty lame, Bruce. I think you should apologize like you really mean it.

Bruce: [hurt] Fine, David. I'm sorry I caused all that throat cancer and all that bowel cancer. I was just on a roll . . .

Dave: . . . and?

Bruce: and I won't do it again.

Dave: Thank you, Bruce.

This is just a friendly note to remind you all chaps are assless. It is inherent in the concept. Thanks.

Yes, exactly. Chaps with an ass are pants, QED.
