Fark posts don't do well here

"How does somebody that ugly get to reproduce? I thought there were laws about inbreeding."
and
"Damn...she must have hit all the branches on the way down."

The subject of one article about sexual activity with pre-teens, as seen at Mefi and Fark. Is this what we've become?

Us declares itself above the law.

Us declares itself above the law.

Other than one or two people here and there talking about the topic at hand, this thread was basically a shouting match and trolling session. Is this the level of debate that now passes for inteligent from the MetaFilter community?

Editorializing on the front page

Shouldn't you post rants on your own blog if you have one?

Enough with the pancakes and haiku, already.

Mob-style takedown

Take a trip with me down the Riviera (#1, #2, #3, #4), where no comment is complete without a little vicious personal invective.

When the cat's away...

I'm seriously aware that Matt is gone for the weekend, but do we have to put up with crap like this?

Is MidasMulligan trolling?

Troll, Ignorant, or Other?

From discussion to bigotry

Discussion? Bigotry? Over the past few days, several threads seem (to me at least) to have degenerated from discussion to all out Muslim bashing (1,2,3). I'm not here to name names, point fingers or tattle on anyone for specific comments, rather to ask at what point do we say "enough is enough?" People have a right to their opinions (prejudices), but when those opinions are stated without some modicum of respect/even-handedness, we have to wonder why they are tolerated in a public forum.

Name Calling Callout

Here's a thought: name calling and the polarizing that follows as everyone is either in one group or the other leads to pointless shouting matches. Is this a debate tactic? Make a slice down the middle, split everyone in half and let them fight it out?

penalty box

Penalty box, if not outright removal from the playing field?

racism and land rights go hand-in-hand?

I believe some of the comments in this thread are completely out of line.

Civility in politics threads: Bushtard.

Bushtard? I'm not a fan of Bush, but this is really getting old. Any suggestions for how to discourage this method of posting?

Rememberance Day Thread Callout

Better to talk about it here than there. Thoughts on the Rememberance Day/Memorial Day[?]/Armistice Day thread?

Inappropriate name-calling in comments

"If you don't see what's so crass about that, you're a simple-minded fuckwit and I sincerely hope that your stupidity one day gets you killed."

More evidence of MetaFilter's demise.

Sorry but that Plump Design plump design (not a typo) really made me.......er.........mad.........uhhhh hold on...........ok I've got it........made me angry. That's it angry."

Abusive Backlash

Abusive Backlash

One user dismissed a silly joke as being old and he got totally reamed by the originator of the joke. Was the reaction really justified? Shouldn't it have been in Metatalk anyway? [more inside]

I am too good for this, and I am telling you that now.

Of all the cheap rhetorical tactics employed here, I think my favorite is "you people are sick and this conversation is beneath me, so I'm not participating except to note this fact" (#1, #2, #3, #4).

Is a call for a beatdown an appropriate response to bad taste?

I'm curious about the etiquette issues involved in today's thread about teen sex. Aside from the issue of the tastelessness of this joke, what is the relative appropriateness of the suggestion that someone should commit violence upon the joker? Is a call for a beatdown an appropriate response to bad taste?
