Bickering ahoy. :( January 17, 2008 4:55 PM   Subscribe

Breaking news: somebody's shooting off his mouth in a foolish way.

daq, I'm looking at you. You can be unhappy with your job, but don't crap on the bisexuals like that. Flagged, etc, but the comments have been immediately and terribly knocked off topic by your inexplicable ranting. Let's put your noise here in the gray and keep things semi-civil in the blue.

There should be a link to Breaking news: not all bisexuals are lying sluts up there for context.

I think people have pretty much moved on; kyrademon has helped reset the discussion to some degree.

Yes, the thread is a little late in working itself out, but hey, isn't that all of us?
posted by moonbird at 5:08 PM on January 17, 2008


There are so few groups which we are marginally permitted to hate, we really have to jump at the chance. SHITCOCK

I've been pulling my hair out since I saw that one. The thread seems to have kinda stabilized, and I think this is one of those cases where if we decided to can daq's initial comment we'd have to can so damned much of the thread in response that leaving it to stand along with the responses makes a lot more sense.

Seriously though folks, that AskMe post is the AskMe equivalent of toxic waste. I wish people would just flag it and move on rather than diving in.

Sweet, then can you delete the bisexuality thread? Unless there's a good reason not to that I'm missing.

I'd love to, but then I'd have to explain to my manager who this cortex person is, which would inevitably lead on to "what's metafilter?" & I don't want to go into that if I can possibly avoid it.
posted by UbuRoivas at 8:27 PM on January 17, 2008


I'd like to hear you rant. You can memail a rant to me, if you're too shy to rant here.

That invitation is actually extended to all of you. I do like a good (or bad) rant.

So a few years ago it was two days before Christmas but it was also our turn for the soup kitchen, and I hadn't done my shopping and had to work and it was going to be a hassle, but fuck it we all go down to make the soup and the sandwiches. Four or so hours later I was working the door because Im sort of a big guy and the old ladies from the SRO can get pushy. This one guy is sitting on the stoop across the street eating his lunch and he starts just laying into me. "You think your going to go to heaven but your not. Fucking burnt soup, raw eggs..." and of course spiritual giant that I am I start yelling back at him. "Listen buddy, I'm out here two days before Christmas trying to feed you..."

Thats what came to mind reading the biAskMe.

boo_radley has something tremendously odd going on on his end, as far as we can tell. pb is putting together some extra sanity checkery that'll hopefully prevent it from happening next time someone does something impossible like that.
