There are different camps on to what degree insults are or should be allowable/desirable/etc, but Metatalk is definitely more tolerant of it than the rest of the site, so if you're going to call someone a shitnozzle this is the best place on the site to do it.

I'm not sure that I'd say that they're kosher in MetaTalk as much as they're the de facto currency of MetaTalk.

I am quoting from this insightful and wise MeTa comment.
------------------
...When I want to read about carping and complaining and why a post was deleted, and why we should kiss LanguageHat's ass, and what new features the whiny babies want, I check out MetaTalk ("The Gray"). MetaTalk is much looser in what you can post without getting flagged by some whiny bitch, because they didn't think of as funny a comment as you. Posts can still get closed, if they are doubles, or just plain stupid. And comments can still be deleted. But there is much more leeway as to what is actually "on topic." For example: if the Post is someone asking for a new feature, like, "I want a really loud sound to play anytime my comment is posted," then an "on topic" response can be anything from "Great idea!" to "What a stupid idea you jackass! Die in a fire!" Also "on topic" would be: "My butt itches," "Hey look a bunny!" and "xtians lol!!!!!"

I don't often visit the other areas, so I will defer to those losers and jerkwads to fill you in on those.

...

About the MeFi culture: every MeFite thinks he/she is sooo damn smart and cool, and that every other MeFite is a drooling, brain-damaged scumsucker, and they have no problem in saying so, in sometimes brutal and distasteful ways. So, please, please, please, do NOT take anything said to you or about you personally, it's just the way these Neanderthals are, you pus-eating maggot.

Insults are haram, or at least they should be if your mama raised you right. They are especially haram in AskMe, although with the unrelenting shitstorm of stupid questions lately (there is such a thing), insult temptation is also highest in AskMe.

Because it is arch-treif, I did not say, and would not say in the green, for example, "If I were to teleport a literal viking from a literal longboat floating in the North Atlantic in the 11th century and put him in my literal driveway with two literal buckets of water, one soapy and one clean and then give him a literal sponge, I bet he'd wash a better car than you, homo-incompetentis." But oh my how I wanted to. In the gray, it is slightly less haram, but since we like to build a fence around the guidelines, my posek advises me to watch what you say and to guard your tongue from evil.

Are insults really kosher in MetaTalk?

We have a bunch of things to balance here. People get very upset if they feel that someone has insulted them and there isn't a place for them to retort in kind. This goes double if the person who is considered the insulter hasn't provided an email address in their profile. So while I'd prefer to keep insults in email or preferably mostly off the planet altogether, MeTa is where you come if someone offended your sensbilities and we won't let you vent in AskMe.

That thread in AskMe is a mess, frankly, because it dredges up some very personal feelings for a lot of people and yet some of the experts (both the this happened to me kind and the doctor kind) could be being a bit more useful and a little less snarky. Add to this that the question could have been phrased much better to start with and I've been trying pretty hard to just keep it civil or chanell people this way.

posted by It's Raining Florence Henderson at 2:52 PM on June 26, 2007


Let's be clear about something right now. By saying "well, if you're gonna do it, then this is the place to do it," nobody is saying that it would ever be ok to start a metatalk post by saying "For the record, desjardins is a waffle stomping, filthfucking butt muncher." Metatalk is not for specifcally starting a thread to insult someone. But if a thread ELSEWHERE gets out of hand and the tensions are a'rising, then it may be brought thisaways so that if insults happen they don't happen in ask or the blue.
posted by shmegegge at 2:52 PM on June 26, 2007


Man, I never thought of myself as the goody two-shoes type, but I can't even come up with a decent insult. The worst thing I've called someone in recent memory is a FIB, which around these parts is as common and original as "jerk."
