Adding unsolicited, uninformed "via"s to other people's posts is the height of rudeness.

Adding unsolicited, uninformed "via"s to other people's posts is the height of rudeness. And usually not even accurate.

Newsfilter, selfmoderation and namecalling do not make for a good post

In this thread, the poster begins with a cluster of mainstream political news links from BBC, Guardian, MSNBC, proceeds with with a healthy dose of self-moderation, and climaxes with "You're a lying SOB. Fuck off" for good measure, effectively derailing his own thread as one user points out. Aren't these exactly the kinds of posts we try to discourage?

I'm tired of clutter

Can metafilter members please email individual users with factual corrections that do NOT pertain to the discussion at hand? I'm tired of clutter, and at times, public rudeness.
