OK, I'm going to call troll on this. It's a continuation from another thread, so it's unnecessary. It's trollish because the poster is using the post not to point out something interesting or debate-worthy on the Web, but to further an agenda.
Is MetaFilter the right place to promote a personal political agenda? I don't want to name any names, but I've noticed several highly charged issues being brought up repeatedly by the same people. It's not that these threads focus on the same topic - it's that they all approach the subject with the same slant on the story. It seems to me (and maybe it's just me) that the people posting these articles are trying to advance their own political goals. Is this appropriate?
