Josh Lueke is a rapist

Post 138529 by klangklangston deleted for the following reason: "Hey let's get the word out about something horrible" is not a good basis for a post, plus the naming and shaming which is not something we like to do here even if the person is a criminal shithead, plus ...he was already convicted and people already talk about it all every time he's up? If you want to have an actual discussion that works at MetaFilter it needs to start from a basis that makes discussion possible rather than instant anger. -- LobsterMitten

Lord knows, there aren’t enough compressed .gif files in the world

Post 138502 by divabat deleted for the following reason: The site is cute but kind of slight on its own; maybe better to put it in the open Silicon Valley thread. -- LobsterMitten

A poor man’s Asian American version of the Howard Stern Show

Post 138501 by spamandkimchi deleted for the following reason: I agree this dude sounds awful and gross, but "asshole does asshole/criminal thing, laughs assholishly" doesn't seem like the basis of a great post for MetaFilter. -- LobsterMitten

True, false, or useful?

Post 138488 by EnterTheStory deleted for the following reason: Heya, quote-hunting is an interesting topic but the framing here, espcially leading with just a wiki talk page above the fold, is not really great for a mefi post. -- cortex

Post 138465 by jedicus deleted for the following reason: Yeah, maybe best to keep the discussion in the open Heartbleed thread. -- LobsterMitten

Can I get your number? For, you know, a date?

Post 138446 by desjardins deleted for the following reason: Yeah, this kind of candid-camera/awkward imposition on strangers without any context video is not often a great fit for MeFi; if there's some non-obvious reason why this is great or illuminating, maybe try again tomorrow with more context? -- LobsterMitten

A different missing plane

Post 138435 by mediocre deleted for the following reason: Sorry, I find the search interesting too, but we've had a post on this within the last year and a lot of other posts over the years, so the bare "they didn't find anything" doesn't seem to merit a new one. -- LobsterMitten

Post 138350 by rmhsinc deleted for the following reason: Only a press release is a bit on the thin side given the topic I'm afraid, also please steer clear of including your own opinion in the post, thanks. -- goodnewsfortheinsane

"The Only Municipal Service Is Demolition"

Post 138349 by blankdawn deleted for the following reason: Nothing against the article on its merits but I do feel this is more outrage than interesting to be honest and that's not really a good fit here. Also I'll admit it's just a very difficult topic to present here in a way that allows for civil discussion. We've talked about this a lot, see MetaTalk for background. -- goodnewsfortheinsane

It's time to cut USians some slack.

Post 138348 by rhombus deleted for the following reason: I would love, love to talk at length about whether this is pitch-perfect Swiftian satire or lazy, stereotype-perpetuating clickbait, or both. But this doesn't seem to be well received and I can sort of see it may not work that well here, sorry. -- goodnewsfortheinsane
