Adam Savage (asavage) answered an question about a Mythbusters episode in AskMe!

Well, that's about as canonical an answer as you're likely to get for that question, eh?

Messy deletion?

This post was deleted for the following reason: what a mess

So that's the barometer now for thread deletion? It doesn't have a clear purpose, goal, or problem to be solved, is too chatty OR there's enough douchebags misbehaving in it?

This precedent sucks.

you ask about drugs and insurance; my advice is to quit

I didn't want to derail this AskMe with this, so I clipped what I wrote there about drug testing and am posting it here. [more inside]

Thanks to every person who's contributed their personal story on AskMe...

On any given week there's someone pissing about the degeneration of quality or civility on MetaFilter/the Internet/the World. As far as I'm concerned if there's one post like this for every 10,000 assclown postings I will still consider there to be more signal than noise. Thanks to you, paulsc, and every other person who's contributed their personal story on AskMe and made my life richer in doing so. There have been many.

When is unhelpful okay in AskMe?

So when is unhelpful okay and when is it not? This thread is a lot of fun, but it's also a lot of noise. I assume nobody cares because it's kind of a goofy question, but I think it raises the issue of when is unhelpful okay in AskMe and when isn't it? [more inside]
