Oh for fuck's sake. People aren't allowed to call people assholes over MeMail, even you klang. Feel free to let them know that if they haven't blocked you already. This isn't the person you called a yutz, is it? [more]

Hmmm, not quite sure what this means. Just idly bullshitting on the mod list watching someone fucking around on the site and wondering if they'd stop.... It put us in this incredibly awkward position where we didn't want to ban a user… [more]

Isn't it unethical for a librarian to monitor or report on identifiable collection usage to 3rd parties (except under court order)? This varies dramtically among the different types of libraries. In public libraries this is the case in… [more]

There's not a lot else this thread can do besides recipes... The thread doesn't have to do anything, actually. Usually we close threads because they need to be closed for some reason, not because there's no reason to keep them open… [more]

This is one of those things where it would depend on who was asking, our relationship with them, the likelihood that they'd tell other people, etc. For the most part if we thought someone was trying to keep it a secret, we wouldn't tell. If someone… [more]

Does that happen? Again, no. It makes good complain-y talk on the mod list, but probably something best not joked about in liable-to-be-taken-out-of-context public. [more]

Competitive suffering assessment is distasteful. Saying someone with one leg should "man up and move on" because they don't have zero legs is not an effective way of starting a useful conversation. And while it's not MetaFilter's job to… [more]

That Reddit discussion on whether plannedchaos counts as a true sockpuppet because there was no second "Scott Adams" account is kind of bizarre There are two competing ideas of what a sock puppet is, and they're very close. In… [more]

If he backed off, then and there, stepped out of the thread and didn't show up again on MeFi as someone basically pretending to be "anyone BUT Scott Adams" that would have been okay. Not great, but acceptable. People make blindingly stupid… [more]
