Easy on the ostracism

I think this thread contains some needless personal attacks against Ironmouth, and this isn't how Metafilter should handle people with viewpoints that are against the grain. [more inside]

Content vs. Contentiousness

I believe this FPP fits exactly the model of what articles get deleted for. MeFtes complained it was deliberate trolling. What happened? [more inside]

Wow. We really aren't grown up yet, are we?

User callsout another for excessive name-calling

Is it really necessary to call those you disagree with a turd, a douchebag, or a twat every time you make a comment in the same thread?

What is this, a zen koan?

Why does flabdablet not take the ad hominem fallacy seriously?

Ad Hominem logical fallacy

Ad Hominem logical fallacy: Attacking a person instead of their argument. Or, in this case, attacking them because of a perfectly valid comment.

Can we stop with the ad hominem comments, please?

Grrr. Can we stop with the ad hominem comments, please? You don't need to repeat someone's "It's ugly!" comment over and over again. And over again. And then again. And then repeat the last person who said it again. And then repeat the repeat. And quote the last repeat to agree with it. And then say ditto. (See how annoying that gets?)

Probably a better question: Do we have guidelines for posting a good comment? Should we?
