the frammisgoshes should be distimmed because a frammisgosh is like a farble,
and distimming is like gosketing, and our ancestors always gosketed the farbles.

Seriously, I think specialk420 should spill the beans and share the dish. In the blue--for posterity's sake.

Okay, that's one of the funniest things I've seen in MeTa for a long while, XQUZ. Thanks!

Next, I suppose, we'll be seeing a link to the Oprah Magazine cover generator. H'mm, I wonder who'll be on it this time...

It was the "Rusty said cunt" thread. Good times.

It was specialk420's lament over rusty calling him a dirty word.

I hate missing stuff like that. Forty comments in an hour and gone in a puff of smoke before I get a chance to see it.

Yeah, me too. I really should spend all my time here, but then I'd lose my job and wouldn't be able to afford internet access. Dilemmas, dilemmas.

So you folks are - what? - deliberately trying to piss Matt off now, after he's deleted two sophomoronic injokey pieces of threadcrap in as many days?

Interesting strategy.

Having three of your lame MetaTalk threads deleted in within 48 hours is now known in MeFi-speak as a "jonson".

It has been brought up before, but there definitely would be an audience for lofi meta, I mean, this is where the magic happens. The site that cannot be named doesn't quite match the pure stupid chaos and flame-feasts that occur in deleted meta posts. I figure it's because there are only veteran, wizened members who feel trapped together and start acting like monkeys crowded into cages.
posted by elwoodwiles at 5:43 PM on August 18, 2003


I find it very interesting how we've now gone beyond discussing how to make Metafilter better and evolved to the apparently higher level of suggesting how we can preserve the parts of it that are shit.

Good question. The important one, though, is how low can you bend back for a facial?
posted by angry modem at 6:13 PM on August 18, 2003


XQ: Some parts may be shit, but it's entertaining shit. Perhaps finding effective poo-flinging venues that are somehow off site, yet accessable, would allow some of us to play, and some of us to be serious, though I figure most people do both.

I posted to the now deleted jonson why is it so boring here now and why doesn't somebody do something about it? thread. The specialk420 dish reference was to his personal Arnold banged a friend of mine story. I assumed this would be long gone and suggested he spill the beans in the Arnold thread. He did so.

Three? I'm at one so far.

And honestly, that's what THIS thread was supposed to be as well. I thought (incorrectly) that angry modem was using personal information he had about insomnia_lj to make a point, which seemed uncool. My bad for not recognizing the sarcasm, however.
