I agree with the poster's moral contention.

Others with relevant comments further support the poster's moral contention, possibly brining other nuances in.

Kottke's an ass. (Just trying to move things along here, people.)

I think you were supposed to have a link in there, bradlands. You biased against links or something??!?! Not everyone around here hates links you know!

Hey, lay off Kottke. He coined the term "metatorial", you know.

Really, he did.

I detect the hand of Greg Knauss here.

I'm honored to have been chosen as the first blooming idiot.

I just wanna know: which band was there?

Courtesy comment about how god-like Nader is. (and an added note inside parentheses that Michael Moore is somehow amusing.)

LOL. That link is gold! Much, MUCH better than having to read yet another article on the political situation right now. Thanks, Sapphire.

That comment trying to link this thread with the election.
posted by Hjorth at 8:08 AM on November 13, 2000


Pointless meandering comment posted a day late that may have had an actual cogent point but wasn't properly thought through before posting and which, due to the avalanche of links flooding the main page, probably won't get read by any other than the idle curious. (My specialty.)
posted by chicobangs at 8:18 AM on November 13, 2000


Baylink: actually, I wasn't riffing on specific people; I just swiped the link detail from a thread and just played with whatever names were there. So there's nothing personal in there. Promise.

I know, avalanches don't flood. Bad metaphor. (Self-referential non-sequitur follow-up.)

(Someone spent way too much time putting this together. It's brilliant. And scary.)

Doesn't this belong in MetaTalk?

I don't think we need an election link in every damn thread. Anyone who thinks otherwise can go to posted by EngineBeak at 9:57 AM on November 13, 2000


Incendiary comment just as thread is winding down, spurring a whole flurry of posts.

Don't forget "demonstrating a horrible HTML trainwreck."

This one I ain't reporting to Matt.

This is kinda fun, actually. The sort of self-referentiality I haven't gotten to engage in since I hung out on A.F.U.

I was told we wouldn't have to do this anymore, though.

... i've been waiting for someone to jump on th3ph17's post and bitch about how old the links are, to make the ambience complete.

do I have to do *everything* myself?

Excellent. The circle is now complete.

Inappropriate and irrelevant self-link for which I will be roundly chastised.

An overwrought comment double-posted at an ungodly hour, calling the above poster ein muy arrogante idioteo, containing a phrase in a second and/or third language and a bizarre topical groaner, mangled and frivolous, and expressing reservations about the erosion of discourse within the thread (ambiguously, 'taking the fifth') and a previous post which -- ?

"Expressing reservations about ... a previous post" -- a naked singularity, threating to punch the mefi chad out of the spacetime ballot!

A curt apology for the double-posted comment.
posted by EngineBeak at 2:46 AM on November 14, 2000


Yeah, Brad, but if you want to get bitched at for self-linking, you're *supposed* to hide the link behind some text that doesn't make it obvious that it's a self link.
posted by baylink at 11:40 AM on November 14, 2000


Righteous indignation at the prospect of being told how and what to post on MeFi. Unveiled threat to abandon community and start own message board. Vague allusion to censorship on the part of mathowie. Gratuitous fart joke.

Roar of laughter. Insertion of pseudo-HTML tags demonstrating such.

Whiny screed railing against the morons who post gratuitous fart jokes and the immature suckups who laugh at them.

Well-meaning but rambling post about how things are done differently in Britain, and aren't we all friends here?

Posting of a comment weeks -- months! -- after everyone else, thereby reviving a thread that should have died out long, long ago.

Pointless continuation of a long-dead thread by a self-declared non-Cabalist.

Insistant declaration that there is no Cabal™.

Winking inference that Cabal™ denial was discussed at earlier Cabal™ meeting.
