Am I too awesome to breed?

So of course I'm posting because my smartass comment was deleted, but this guy strikes me about the same way as this guy does.

Whatever will you do to salve the wounds of your dearly deleted comment?

Probably just make snarky comments on the internets.

The questioner is, pretty obviously, a certain reasonably well-known Mefi commenter, and there's no reason at all to doubt that every word of his question is true. It should stay up.

well, at least you're honest about it.

but this guy strikes me about the same way as this guy does.

and that guy didn't get his askme question deleted, either, and neither were smartass comments allowed in that thread.

so what's the point, here, guy? was this just to open up the official "snark about this user" thread? 9 out of 10 doctors agree that's kind of weak.

Thanks for working to elevate the discussion on MeFi. Please note both those were ANON posts, which means they were vetted and approved by mods.

You, on the other hand, are an prick with 5 dollars and a shitty attitude.

Ergo: YOU are the problem.

Why do people contradict themselves from one sentence to the next? ^

Am I too awesome to breed? ... this guy strikes me about the same way as this guy does.

I...I don't get the similarity at all. How is saying "I did way too many drugs back in the day and now I'm worried it will affect my children" in any way equivalent to "am I too awesome to breed?"

Originally a pointless "make fun of anon" thread, this is now an ever-so-slightly-more-pointful "make fun of electroboy" thread. Close, mods?

not until we find out who the hell matthewr is talking about!

I mean, there's a certain degree of "can you believe what a badass I was fifty years ago" to it, but that could as easily be chalked up to overcompensation in light of his question basically being "I used to be a massive drug abuser and consequently I'm a little nervous my children may end up looking like the mutants from The Hills Have Eyes. Is this a reasonable fear?" I'm not sure I understand why this thread is here, either.

Heh. He posted anonymously, so for me to broadcast his identity to everyone would be a bit of a dick move. Work it out yourself!

Right, so no specific redeeming motivation for the thread that was just poorly expressed or omitted in the original post text? Okay. You don't have to go home, can't stay here, etc.
