What's the worst post you posted on the blue?

Lipstick Thespian points out that my latest post about clothes is "absolutely the dumbest thing I've ever read on Metafilter." They've got a point! I admit I've posted some real stinkers in my time that I would gladly take back. So I'm wondering, what are some things that you yourself have posted, that in retrospect you would take back, and why?

How has this crap not been deleted already? Editorialized posts about community drama? Better posts about more interesting/important issues have been deleted for less.

Tired old argument

This thread should be fun.

Really? I hate to spoil the ending for you, but this thread has already been fun over and over and over and over. It always goes the same way. Thanks for summarizing it for us, but is there some purpose in posting the results of a Google news search for "smoking" other than to rehash the same old tired argument yet again?

Is it too much to ask that FPP's be reasonably coherent?

Why is this post still up?

The Delta is (probably) declaring bankruptcy thread, which features nothing more than a rumor backed up by a link to Delta's home page, is truly teh suck.

A link to an AP correction is not a good post.

A link to an AP correction is not a good post. A kill is mandatory.

This is not a good post

A bad post to MetaFilter is something that meets the following criteria: there is nothing interesting about the content on the page, and I'm only posting it to let you know how uninteresting it is.

Island of Bad Posts?

I just noticed another insanely long no-link post was pulled this morning. It might be useful to have a Island of Bad Posts archive where stuff that gets pulled is anonymized and listed along with a 25 word description of why it was pulled. This page could be linked to the register page for new users so they can learn through negative example as well as learning by positive example just by reading the site. Plus I'm sure a lot of us are just curious about what's getting pulled....
