Somehow, MetaFilter is still capable of producing really great threads

I guess we all have our own interpretation of 'great'.

YLAug 01, 2003 at 5:18PM

Goobers read everything and tsk-tsk-tsk.

WilhelmAug 01, 2003 at 5:47PM

truly, sincerely, kindly: try shouting 'kazart', then spelling 'kindling'.

Kottke is neat, daring, likable influencing net guests.

lanceAug 01, 2003 at 7:16PM

Gosh, under every sign this sucks

WilhelmAug 01, 2003 at 8:05PM

"Sucks"? Unfortunate choice, kiddo. Seriously.

ckAug 01, 2003 at 8:15PM

Stop eroding reasonable intellectualism over untenable statements lacking yin.

WilhelmAug 01, 2003 at 8:18PM

Yeah, it's nonproductive.

AlanAug 01, 2003 at 8:51PM

Nonproductive?! Only nincompoops pan, ridicule, or deride useful, collective thinking involving vocabulary expertise.

dowingbaAug 01, 2003 at 10:40PM

Even Xanga pities every rude, trite, ignorant sicko, eh?

robAug 01, 2003 at 10:51PM

Exactly, heffe!

liedoAug 01, 2003 at 11:45PM

Here, everyone forgets foreign engagements

TimAug 02, 2003 at 3:35AM

Enough! Nobody gave anyone go-aheads, especially metafilter. Ending needed -- thread's stupefying.

GregAug 02, 2003 at 4:38AM

Sorry. The unending problems engulfed fickle yogurt ingesting noggins. Golly!

DurfAug 03, 2003 at 3:20AM

Grab ol' Lil's labia. Yank.

AnilAug 03, 2003 at 8:15AM

You're all not Kottke.

YLAug 03, 2003 at 8:50AM

Kottkephiles only think they know everything.

Bob mojoAug 04, 2003 at 9:19AM

Everything? Vapid early responses you type hopefully ignore near greatness!

MarshallAug 04, 2003 at 11:26AM

Growing rapidly
Each a thread never edified
Self syncopating

WilhelmAug 04, 2003 at 12:42PM

Straitjacketed, yelling
no cooperation
only panic
asphodel tinctures
incoherent numb grief

GregAug 04, 2003 at 2:21PM

Gump's real iteration exists: Forrest.

WilhelmAug 04, 2003 at 4:54PM

FALSTAFF: O'er-reaching rapscallion!
SHALLOW: touche'.

samAug 04, 2003 at 7:59PM

the only ugly chick has exited

YLAug 04, 2003 at 10:02PM

Dyslexia exists today. It sux big-time.

dowingbaAug 04, 2003 at 11:06PM

But it's "Great": that implies much enormity.

MartinAug 05, 2003 at 4:32AM

Another fabulous reason for weblogs to be treated as irrelevant and childish.

YLAug 05, 2003 at 12:15PM

Afrfwtbtaiac? WTF?

Maybe a reason to IP-block nebbishes.

WilhelmAug 05, 2003 at 12:34PM

Eventually, new obstacles rise -- maybe I'll tell you...

JohnAug 05, 2003 at 2:21PM

Your obstacles underestimated.

WilhelmAug 05, 2003 at 3:31PM

Uh, no dice. Even really egregious surfers tend, in my appreciation, to explore dichotomies.

GregAug 06, 2003 at 2:53AM

Dormant, interesting characters helming on this "overt metafilter." Instead, eat steak.

WilhelmAug 06, 2003 at 12:22PM


dowingbaAug 07, 2003 at 12:26AM

Kottke ought to try killing everyone.
