Tough Love

"Go see a therapist, get into AA, and grow the hell up." "It's time for you to quit being such a goddamned mealy-mouthed coward." "You are one sorry-ass stinkin' drunk" If you're going to offer advice, please do so without the invective. Insults don't help people find answers.

Will Work For Work

I'm looking for a post--either on the front page or in Ask MetaFilter--about a website that offered work-for-trade, or work-for-services, or some such. I remember the site could be used, for example, by a bricklayer and a painter, where the painter needed a new patio and the bricklayer needed his house painted--sort of an eBay for trade skills. I can't remember if it was an FPP, or a link posted as part of a comment, or an answer to an AskMetaFilter question. Anyone?

This smells like chatfilter--the circumcision of Stalin's declawed cats kind of chatfilter.

Concern over escalating tone of answers in alarming AskMe about a child abducted by her mother

"If you don't call the FBI, I'll walk down to the Hoover Building myself with a copy of this thread in hand." 6 more-or-less identical answers in one Ask Metafilter thread is plenty, but threatening to call the FBI is a bit much.
