Looking for a comment on Metafilter and search is failing me. May 9, 2014 6:27 PM   Subscribe

Some time in the relatively recent past there was a discussion on one of Metafilter's sites wherein a user posted a snarky line something like "Hey Jimmy, don't get raped" in a discussion of an anti-rape or abuse meme/campaign that was current on Facebook at the time. Search is failing me.

Something like that likely got deleted by the mods. I hope.

It actually was contextually relevant, I don't think it was deleted.

Browsing the 'rape' tag, it looks like Nightmare in Maryville was the last thread on the blue about a rape story with attached Facebook campaign. I haven't come across a comment like the one you described yet. Can you recall any other distinguishing aspects of the comment or conversation?

I believe the discussion was on a then current Facebook meme of changing one's profile picture to that of something espousing anti-abuse sentiments. Somewhere in the discussion it was brought up the futility of such actions and I believe the comment I'm after, which was playing into the nature of such futility.

Could it be this, from the thread about people changing their Facebook picture to cartoon characters?

Sweet jeebus, I had the context somewhat right, but the content wrong, thank you.

It always comes back to Space Ghost in the end.
