Obits: Not Such a Nice Guy?
Pretty sure I had some comments deleted, FWIW. It happens.

(Mainly I was speculating as to the clusterfuck that will occur once Clint Eastwood dies, which, well, I can see why maybe that wouldn't be wanted in thread)

She was a very effective, low-key advocate on HIV/AIDS awareness. Super low key. Almost opposite of that key.

At least with Len Wein we'll mostly be arguing about the good taste of Wolverine and Swamp Thing jokes. Maybe arguing the toss on some of his later feuds with Alan Moore.

Also RIP Len Wein, he will be missed.

Halloween Jack - doesn't *seem* to have sent thinks south in any particular way, in fact seems like a pretty organic part of the conversation.

Sorry, I was mocking some dumb stuff from the time, probably not helpful.

Metatalktails: Family Filk
If you ever watch The Mothman Prophecy enhance the mood by singing the lyrics "ooooo-ooooh, it's the Mothman Prophecy" to the theme, whicg plays frequently throughout.

Any chance of marking Twitter links like Youtube ones?
I'm a fan of...

@username meat of tweet goes here so you don't really need to click, lorem ipsum etc.

...as a format myself but it;s probably best left to commenter preference. And then there's threads, which don;t really have a great solution.

My "favorite" thing like that is Facebook letting you turn off its algorithm in favour of chronological ordering then sneaking it back to algorithm the moment you're not watching.

POTUS45 on Metafilter - I may have got a bit nerdy
I should take a break.

On the other hand the insanity isn't going to scream about itself.

Everything is fine?
Good thing we're having a meta then.

From my point of view we're witnessing a complete collapse of Norns, discussing that in these threads seems appropriate. If we're going to aggressively oust people from the thread for having those discussions then those efforts you mention seem pretty pointless.

Navigating the dark storm we are in, figuring out how to survive, is hard enough without jumping overboard.

Where do we draw the line on that though? Spitball has it at, in my mind, entirely reasonable things like impeachment not happening and republican inaction in the face of damning evidence.

Hyperbolic overreactions are absolutely the result you get from letting users try to police conversation like that. It's not a thing that's going to make anyone calmer.

Ehh, If hating fascists is our problem think our closed community of most of everybody will do just fine.

I get that "we" don't like Mr. Trump.

Wee.

I feel like we can do better in a Metatalk than that?

Nope.

The whole Voldemort thing makes a lot more sense once you encounter term searching fuckers on Twitter.

I'm not ruling out sympathy for people who voted to kill their own health insurance, but at a minimum they are behind people who didn't vote for it in the pity queue.

On Jews and their Comments
The far right wants to murder all Muslims AND all Jews, with any support for Israel being a fleeting matter of convenience for them. Don't be fooled, do what you can to defend both.

Nothing with Joe on I/P can be resolved. That's why everyone avoids it.

People on the left love to say that being anti-Israel isn't automatically anti-semitic, which most people - I would hazard even JiA, agree with

No, he leaps to it every time. More than anyone JiA has gone out of his way to poison the shit out of the subject, and if discussion of antisemitism or I/P is impossible here then a fair chunk of the blame for that can be laid directly at his feet.

The bomb threats would clearly fall under the election, depressing as that sounds. In more normal times we probably would have spun up a separate thread for the situation in Whitefish as well, but the election threads ate that. It's actually kind of surprising the punching got a separate thread.

Videos and transcripts
I would suggest seeking out transcripts and posting them where available if this issue really bugs you - the additional verbiage seems too much like a disincentive to posting.

"This is all we are" - Goodbye, Wolof
Last comment, in the Darwyn Cooke thread:

As above, get checked and do it early. I'm in a rotten state myself due to an entirely unexpected development, but you people can perhaps get ahead of the game with a little forward planning. This is nothing you want.

He will be missed.
