Pranks against MeFi March 17, 2010 4:30 PM   Subscribe

Is this guy for real?

I'm not trying to hate on anyone, and we all have submitted our fair share of stupid questions, but looking at a few of Jazzwick's submissions got me thinking; how have people tried to prank MeFi?

You're saying you're a solipsist, too?

You know, putting a magnifying glass on someone who seems to be having an ongoing problem is probably not really the best way to move forward with this.

The point of this post wasn't to flame Jazzwick, it was to ask if anyone had tried to prank metafilter.

A couple of those questions are very interesting. I may have a go at trying to answer one.

Yeah, this should be closed. Kinda fucked up to out someone for their honest problems and questions.

Not cool, man.

That you shouldn't have linked to his posting history. Not cool and I'll close this up. You or someone else can post the question again without the callout-seeming aspect.
