Au courant reference to furries, BBW, polyamory, hentai, BDSM, ana and mia, slash fiction, pedophilia, pumps, Viagra abuse, water sports, autofellatio, self-amputees, scatophilia, or some other thankfully marginal erotic subculture, with no allusion to the fact that it's patently gross, because that would seem dreadfully unhip.

A mighty verbose comment regarding the history of texts of this nature, followed by several links to generic, online texts.

Derail into ad hominem attack on current administration.

Some time ago this user observed application of generic statements under ideal conditions. Said observation led to a great deal of emotion. Due to these emotions, many people interacted. This incident was exciting!

Statement of opinion as fact.

Complex, multi-paragraph statement of thesis (relying on evidence which previous posters in the thread have definitively proven false,) posted in apparent ignorance of all prior discussion on the topic.

Quote pulled from a comment which was posted six hours ago, excerpted out of context to place the original idea in the worst possible light.

Straw-man response to mischaracterization of earlier argument.

continuation of quote from same previous comment, containing inconsequential speling error

Rebuttal of comment, relying on restatement of opinion as fact. Suggestion that earlier commenter's inability to spell implies ignorance of the topic at hand.

Quote from a completely different comment upthread, posted by another user

Rebuttal of comment which fails to differentiate between the two users quoted, which begins with the phrase "with all due respect," and which is phrased in such a way as to convey an absolute lack of respect.

Stray sentence fragment apparently missed during preview of

Multi-paragraph, expletive-laden restatement of original thesis. Link to vaguely related news story written by an obviously biased news source. Citation of hastily-googled survey statistics in support of thesis. Link to White House press gaggle transcript.

Assertion that all those who disagree with thesis are trolling.

Demand that all readers immediately contact their congressperson in support of thesis. Assertion that right-thinking Americans will take to the streets regarding the issue, any day now. Use of bold type to emphasize restatement of opinion as fact. Statement of intention to stockpile food and/or purchase firearm.

Humorous aside in small type.

long winded confessional and anecdotal post which inspires half of the ensuing posters to suggest that i should get my own blog when i already have one and people quit reading it eons ago because life is short and art is long but jackie gleason was shorter, which reminds me of something i've always wondered about - why do hot dogs come in packages of 10 when hot dog buns come in packages of 8? considers conspiracy as reason for this, realizes that a good part of the people reading this are probably part of the conspiracy, looks up at sky for chemtrails, inspects local skyscrapers for signs of installed explosives, buys bars of gold to bury under fallout shelter, busily starts making a lifetime supply of tin foil hats only to realize upon making the 143rd that i bought aluminum foil instead and it just won't work, resolves to tell everyone on metafilter exactly what the voices the foil was supposed to stop have been telling him to do, gets drunk on old overholt and mad dog 20/20, spew vomit on screeen and thinks it's a distinct improvement, wakes up in morning claiming it was all a nightmare caused by net.persecution and stalking and makes new resolution to tell everyone the TRUTH about subliminal advertising, wonders on way to that big castle on the third hill if the nice young men in those big white coats will let him have computer access in the rubber room, reflects that it's all dick cheney's fault anyway, hatches plot to train birds to fight back and is never heard from again from anyone except the orderlies

Looking for a girl named Sue. Met her at a Dead show in 1982. I think it was in Chicago. May have been in Portland though. Memory is a little fuzzy. She had long blondish hair. Went by the nickname Lil Dancing Bearbie. She said she was from California. If anyone knows her whereabouts contact me asap.
