Not ok. Grow up.
How much anti-trangenderism is considered tolerable? [more inside]
You can take your own sanctimonious smugness and shove it deep and far up inside your poophole.
loquacious, maybe you should relax and not be so violent.

Malor - your arguments have to stand on their own merits without bringing other people's names up. [more inside]
The filesystem jokes in this Reiser trial thread struck me as being in particularly bad taste. [more inside]
And the black majority went on to demonstrate to the world - leaving no uncertaintly - that they were utterly incapable of running their own affairs.
This post on breast ironing has turned into a nightmare of inappropriate comments, jokes, and general trolling. [more inside]
In this thread, languagehat has spouted several lies concerning myself, communications by email, and the mods' involvement therein. [more inside]
Will all those who think the YFZ Ranch FPP is a "yawn" or "not the best of the web" please complain about it in this thread rather than in the blue. Thank you.
It's not OK to dismiss an entire country because you couldn't resist making a lame joke. [more inside]
If you feel the need to call the OP a douchebag, attack his phrasing, or lecture him for "body image baggage," please do it in this MeTa instead of shitting in the question.
What happened to put quotes in italics?
Normally I don't say anything, but... the discussion about fat folks forced to fly on SouthWest and whether we need to buy another ticket on ask strikes me as fat bashing, which is not really what the poster asked for. [more inside]
Can we work harder at having mature and respectful discussions? Do we need to do so? [more inside]
Come on y'all this is embarassing. I don't think anyone would appreciate getting their religion bashed this way and Mormon's LOVE that man. Believe me, I know some. Totally uncalled for.
Breaking news: somebody's shooting off his mouth in a foolish way. [more inside]
Nutjobfilter: Metafilter Ad Hominem Much? How about we delete posts that start out with grade school name calling? Just for thrills. [more inside]
We don't think religious satire goes down well on Mefi. Well, 'cept for the 'Tologists, that is. [more inside]
Yeah, assassinations are hard to be unemotional about, but can we start acting reasonable? [more inside]
At first I was kinda surprised the video in 67602 got dumped on in comments. There is nothing intrinsically bad here. It's actually rather professionally done, it feels very much like something that was produced for television. I strongly suspect the fault here is with the FPP. [more inside]
I have a problem with people making posts here that are blatantly inaccurate just for the sake of making a political point. [more inside]
ND¢, generally I really like you, but it's clear that you are being a dick for the sake of being a dick, notwithstanding your attempts at justifying that as your real and valid opinion. All you had to say was "yeah, maybe my joke was a little offside" and no one here would have busted your balls over it. Just be a decent human being with a little respect and understanding and things don't have to turn into a shitpile.
I think everyone's read the "note" about relevance and respect at the bottom of the posting window in the blue. But it seems that very few people actually take that message to heart. [more inside]
That little drive-by rant made you sound like the biggest pompous asshole in mefi history, buddy. It really did. Ethereal Bligh, stop this. Your continual personal insults and belittling are neither appropriate nor conducive to discussion or community.
Hey, I'm new to MetaTalk, so go easy on me, and I hope this hasn't been talked about before, but... [more inside]
Occasionally links without any real description are posted to the front page. It would be nice if any user could add a short description that would appear when you moused over the link, so users don't have to click on eight different links to find out what a post is about. [more inside]
ok, flag it as crap we know you want to. But do we both need you flagging it as crap and then posting a crap "flagged as crap" message in the allegedly crappy thread? Comment should be flagged as masturbatory noise.
"You win, Metaflter", or, "How to go from very first post in the blue to self-banning in only thirteen comments!" (give or take one or two that were deleted...) "Mission accomplished!"
MetaFilter seems rife with religious intolerance and disinformation under the guise of intelligent conversation. Is this a flaw or a feature of Metafilter?
I am so goddamn tired of being rickrolled in the comments. I think somebody spilled some 4chan on my metafilter.
Fucking flag it and move on. It's not about YOU.
wendell sent a mass email to like 1000 users and so sorry I responded. I've also disinclined my email address.
Cleanup in Aisle 62093, please.
Could we please stop in-thread "celebrity" derails?
I find myself fascinated by unhindered's "contributions". Which is to say that I find them annoying as hell, pseudoscientific at best, and skirting the boundaries of acceptable behavior on MeFi.
Today's edition of what irks me: Hijacking threads with unsupported claims of doubleness. Either put up or shut up--don't shit on good threads just because you read boing boing and have a bad memory.
I don't understand why this was posted. Most LOL XTIANS get deleted; why is this one still here?
What's wrong with LOLing at DRUGIIEZ ?
Posted 1 hour ago by stbalbach. As interesting as I might find the contents, technically this is a self-link. The main link is to something he himself uploaded to another site.
DiscussionFilter: Is Metafilter (as a collective) horrendously biased and therefore a crappy measuring stick for 'Real Life'? [MI]
