Come on, guys, I don't care if you don't like her posts, but why be such assholes about it?

Hey, I'm an asshole, you're an asshole! We're all assholes!

No, seriously....

I think my comment was one of the less disruptive way to give miss lynnster a hint, instead another pileon MetaTalk post...

You've gotta do something when you run out of puppies to kick...

what, she needs to be handled with kid gloves cos she's a newbie and a girl? This place can be pretty rough going, why single her (and also steve & dreamghost out)?

Thanks graventy. This lame crap adds nothing to the site or the discussions and their behaviour needed to be called out.

Steve, here, let me make this easy for you.

Blue = place for links and discussing those links.
Grey = place for discussing issues with those links and comments on the blue.

Quit crapping in threads.

You're welcome. Hey, I'm fine with callouts that say "This thread sucks ass, because.....", but to just say "Everything you have tried to contribute to this site sucks" ... that's just assholery.

Steve, don't get all high and mighty that you did a good thing here. You were an asshole by shitting in threads and it's what is helping make this site rather stinky lately.

There are about two dozen people shitting in threads they don't like when they really shouldn't be. If you don't like it, bring it here, email people directly, or be quiet and let people enjoy the site instead of having to read your little screed du jour about how you don't like or care for something.

I already sent an email to you Steve before I saw this thread. Take it to heart and chill out.

SweetJesus, sorry, I was keeping the cross warm for you, aren't you almost done with your coffee break?

And you're right, this isn't that big of an issue but the larger problem that Matt discusses above is a larger issue that this is a part of. Rampant Assholery would be a fine band name but its a bad slogan for MeFi.
