Words that are not okay for minorities.

I object to the multiple uses of 'whackadoodle' to describe the mental illness of a young man (who yes, killed half a dozen people) in this thread. [more inside]

Is the term "Batshit Insane" offensive?

Yesterday, this post about the Discovery hostage-taking was edited (with the poster's permission) by Matt. The main result of editing was to remove the term "batshit insane" and the batshitinsane tag. I have mixed feelings about this. Is the term so offensive (presumably, to sanity-challenged folks) as to be unusable? If so, should it even be allowed as a tag? [more inside]

pathetic insensitive

This project is offensive beyond the pale for those who worship the Son of God, and who are grateful He gave His life and defeated death. [more inside]

Comment goes beyond the pale of acceptable comments

"On the other hand, this girl just might wake up with a sore pussy the next day and not even worry about it..." Delmoi's post is offensive, disgusting, insulting, demeaning to women, really creepy, and IMHO, is simply beyond the pale of acceptable comments. I know you should be able to say what you want, but the thread just keeps getting worse and worse. And it's not just Delmoi who's being sickening. Shouldn't this thread be deleted? What's the policy on really offensive stuff?

Deleted double post on fatness

Just curious: what happened to the thread that apparently linked to doctored photos to make celebrities look overweight? I have to admit I found the thread utterly stupid and offensive, but it's not like it was a double-post. (Heh.) And surely other posts have been kept up that have no redeeming value.

does MeFi have any policy regarding usernames?

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Fishfucker.

So my question is - and I'm not offended by this, merely curious - does MeFi have any policy regarding usernames?

there's trolls in there, lots of them.

holloway leads the pack, but there are a few others walking right behind.

matt, have you even looked at this thread? it's really offensive, completely unproductive as a conversation--the misogynists came
out of the woodwork too quickly for that.

honestly, if it were me, I'd boot a few people, but you might consider at least pulling the thread....
