I'm not sure if this would make a good post (it has some truth/relvations in it...)? September 6, 2004 8:58 PM   Subscribe

trying not to piss community moores here... would this (coupled with a few token links to 'kerry medals fake!" news stories) make an appropriate FPP?

is Palast too 'opinionfilter'?

I've made my views on Palast known.

To answer your question, I suggest you consider whether MeFi still has mores upon which to piss.

Didn't Charlotte Bronte write a bunch about moors? Maybe she's got some notes on whether pissing on heath is a good idea.

Come to think of it, Emily Bronte's Heathcliff was a bit masochistic, so I'll bit he had no qualms about pissing on Moors on the moors.

Cows and sheep naturally piss all over the moor. So, really, as long as you don't have any communicable diseases, it's probably no big deal if you decide to piss on them. Just try to avoid pissing near the community water sources.

Umm... I don't exactly see how you should act proud that someone else posted an FPP you just admitted you were afraid to post yourself being worried about getting flak for posting it.

Not that the FPP itself is the issue, but come on, man. You've been a MetaFilter member for over 2 years; isn't the "can I post this" redundancy unbecoming by now?

That was Shakespeare. And it was just one Moor, albeit a big one.

Because we can never really agree on anything, we don't quite have full-blown community moores here; hence, Tryptophan-5ht should have referred to them as "demi moores".

Guys, either post or don't post. Quit worrying that someone might say something to hurt your feelings. Because the truth is someone usually does, no matter what you post-so you may as well grow a thick skin and get over it.

I regret not checking here first and finding a more appropriate forum for my opinion that the FPP was a bad idea. I still say it's a bad idea, if largely for the way that the person who put it up decided to cast it.

When you break a dumb rule
But you feel like a fool
That's a more
When it's arbitrary
But still feels plenary
That's a more
A deep feeling of shame
When there's no one to blame
That's a more
Two dudes can't lock lips
Chicks can't go on pirate ships
It's a more
A cultural more!

which you are not helping by kissing their asses instead of just posting your link.

Scottish moors, jp. Wuthering Heights and suchlike. The foggy, damp moors, with damsels in crisis angsting over their ill-fated love. Must be the climate; I can't see anyone in, say, Polynesia acting quite like Jane Eyre.
