A recent comment by Fluffy left me thinking about the variety of low points that we've seen in the history of LF, those threads you return to weeks after the fact and think: 'what the HELL were we all smoking?'
Some are funny. Some are sad. Some are just hair-raising. And all, I'm afraid to say, are better left in the past.
So here they are! Anyone have any other suggestions?
*We have this pleasant little journal entry
in which a (former) user threatens to report the journal poster's actions to the authorities (whatever authorities those might be).
*The famous Least Called For Linkfilter Contest Ever
, which was almost a joke before it even began.
is still cited as an example of how not to conduct an argument. Election 2004 warning!
*In the 'dear God, why?' category, we have just one of many, many
pointless threads about secondhand smoke.
*Second Amendment thread
. Everyone gets really worked up and starts waving their pieces around.
*Things are said, mistakes are made, somebody makes reference to attack hamsters
issue crashes and burns. Darkstar bites some guy's head off.
might look like a flamewar if I could tell what was actually going on.
*In this fine thread
, some people discuss the game of basketball. Also, some guy tries to kill several people with his high-school diploma and receives several papercuts.
*A 1-voter owns up
in this heartwarming thread. People aren't too pleased.
*In a thread so bad that clu claims there aren't enough pictures of puppies in the world to save it
, some yahoo derides darkstar for his ignorance of the evil ways of the French, little suspecting where his opponent actually lives...
*Bad threads don't have to be concerned with weighty, contentious matters. The famous Fish vs. Meat vs. Whale vs. Hendrix
debacle is perhaps the best example. Yours truly challenges FuzzyDave to a fish-slapping duel and everyone chews on the scenery
*In which a certain LF user proves not only that he's unable to write a joke, but also that he doesn't even know what one is
be delicious, but in this
thread it tastes bitter as ashes.
*When someone says "Everyone who has a chance to walk away from this toxic thread should do it now
," you should always take the advice, right? Right?
