What was wrong with the godly feeling thread that was on Ask Mefi? As an atheist, I thought the discussion, for the most part, was civilized and was more about people trying to come to terms with a certain consciousness.

This ________ thread is in clear violation of [insert Metafilter policy]. [insert MeFi user] stepped over the line. Why was __________ permitted? Has MetaTalk served its purpose well or has it become useless?
