I see that this AskMe post gratuitously compares a beautiful woman's face to a diseased rectum, distended with constipated feces.

How wonderful! Congratulations to MetaFilter on the new awareness that's helping create a woman-friendly environment.

It's a botox joke and not my favorite. However, the question is, do you remove an otherwise well-meaning question because the OP is a bit cloddish with his metaphors? My answer, personally, was no.

You're a smart guy, you pretty much know that it's a botox joke not "OMG Renee is a diseased rectum" and yet this is how you decide to come to MetaTalk with it? Sarcasm just starts people off annoyed. I'm sorry if the OP annoyed you with his question which was asked in a somewhat dorkish manner. What do you propose we do about it, besides point and sneer?
