I thought it was about me for some reason. Glad it wasn't. What the hell *was* it about?

When the cat is away, man. People are not mature enough to deal with the freedom of posting to the front page without editorial oversite. Bless Matt and his heavy hand, otherwise the site stinks.

Agreed. The whole thread stinks. It started out badly enough. But then darukaru had to chime in with his comment. (Warning: gruesome content ahead.)

How about a warning when you link to something as vile as that? Scratch that. That kind of content has no place here. If that's your bag, go to and stay there.

You must not be a Slashdot reader -- the trolls are huge fans of that link and an ASCII version.

Heh. Michelle just mentioned that to me. Yes, I do stay away from Slashdot for just that very reason. It'd be a pity to see Metafilter go the same way.

Won't do it again, by the way. I just felt that perogi needed a smack upside the head. :P

As an apology, here is a picture of a cute kitten. (Really.)
