AskMe Categorization Request August 18, 2005 2:36 PM   Subscribe

Regarding So clearly the word "cult" went to my head when trying to categorize that question. But really, what would have been the right thing to have filed it under? It seems there should be a multiple categorizing feature at Metafilter. You know for things like Religion and Philosophy/Media and Arts. Basically having question/posts show up in both categories. Another example being this very question which is both a Feature Request as well as Etiquette/Policy. Peace.

I think where you put it is fine; using tags to clear up ambiguities is a good way to solve this for future searchers.

I just want to say that the post in question might be my very favorite AskMe submission ever, for so many reasons.

Thanks for signing all your posts Neosamurai85. I had no idea who you were.

I think filing this under "simbolisim" makes perfect sense.

Welcome to MetaFilter! I think you're going to do just fine here.

Is this really the first AskMe post to use the headlessbats tag?

You don't have to add a "signature" to your posts. The system will do that for you.

Also, that little link button at the bottom of the window is magical. Failing that, read this.Enjoy the GeoCities!

Okay, whoa, whoa, hold on, hold on, easy, before everyone piles the fuck on this person, whoa, hold on, remember that there's a HUGE difference between an Easy Target and a Way Too Damn Easy Target.

Feel free to ignore us, Neo. It's an interesting question. We're just totally sky high on pancakes. There can be only... eighty-five NeoSamurai?

Oh man. You guys are mean. Funny as hell, though.

!! I think the hex just came true.

You've been cursed to endure asshattery on the internet, Neosamurai85, but you can counter this by binding a buttermilk pancake with nine black threads which each have nine knots tied in them, then placing the sacred pancake on your kitty's head and posting a photograph here.

I'm sorry, but that's the only way.

You could half-ass that counter by simply getting a good pic of a pancake atop your cat's head and posting it here. Butter and syrup is optional but strongly encouraged.

No, I most certainly will not wash your pussy afterwards. I hardly even know you.

Wow… feeling the love guys… did I accuse some of your moms of molesting an emu on Ain’t it Cool News or something? Oh, and I hated the Matrix. My name comes from two of my loves: old Neo Geo games and Akira Kurosawa films.

Sorry about the titling my posts thing. I respect the demand for literacy around here but your spell check is a tad WE TODD DID, so I end up editing them in a word processor which gets me in E-mailing mode. I’ll try and avoid that in the future.

Kwantsar, I hear ya. I really didn’t see a link button at the bottom, which is why I just pasted it. If it was there or not, it’s still no excuse for me not getting off my lazy ass and learning the very easy code to do it without the button. I’ve been on this site too long not to.

The pancake bit is tempting… however I’ve seen my pussy take down many a big dog and other wild animal. Hell, he even kicked this guys ass once for being too "YOU’S NOT MEAN! YOU’S A QUTE PUTTY CAT YES YOU ARE!" with him. So… I value the comfort of waking up, with my personal bits not hanging from the wall with the words "Don’t fuck with Da Puss!" written in his piss and my blood on my favorite shirt, to do that to the guy. As for the other cats… let us just say I’m not into getting my sisters’ pussies wet, mmmkay?

Oh, snap! No you didn't just call us... Oh, the spell checker? Yeah, it's so punk rock it has three extra chromasomes.

And you don't have to accuse me of that. I have pictures. I sell them. They're my friends. I make them. Well, it's not really an emu. More like an echidna. Ok, it's just a small, oddly shaped chicken.

I have a theory that it may be scanner bats making each others heads explode.

I have a lot of time to come up with this sort of shit too.

It's, um, still there. The bright blue "link" is the first fiendish clue as to its whereabouts.

Also: wishing people "peace" at the end of each comment will, I suspect, produce the opposite effect.

There isn't a link button on all browsers. Not on Safari, for one.

Quit being such jerks, people. The guy didn't doublepost or self-link or anything that deserves disemboweling and beheading and being fed to owls. And he's being real nice about all the asshattery. So be nice. kthxbye

My name comes from the two things I love geography, fishfucker (ff) and ellipses.
