BEWARE OF MONKEYS WANKING

Post 161795 by Wordshore deleted for the following reason: Sorry, it's hard to see where this can really go other than making fun of this lady and then fighting about whether people should make fun. -- LobsterMitten

Post 161773 by Effigy2000 deleted for the following reason: To keep the Trumpmania somewhat corralled, I think you can post this either here or here -- taz

Dr. Martens and Cheap Monday as the new fedora

Post 161751 by acb deleted for the following reason: Heya, sorry, it seems like this is basically revisiting an often-fighty set of tropes we've discussed pretty extensively in recent years; I'm not sure this essays adds a lot more. -- LobsterMitten

Internet off Links

Post 161731 by ArticTusk deleted for the following reason: This is super unclear and the first link goes to a blind installation prompt. -- cortex

Gender and fairness at the Rio Olympics

Post 161724 by brozek deleted for the following reason: Seems like the flat categorization of Semenya as intersex is kind of murky and not a matter of self-identification, which makes it a fairly problematic hook to build the post around, much as I appreciate the effort to put something substantial together here. -- cortex

Where do we draw the line?

Post 161722 by kersplunk deleted for the following reason: Yeah, this is a bit difficult to parse. Feel free to repost tomorrow with the quoted parts marked as such. -- goodnewsfortheinsane

NO is a special place of course, Trombone Shorty is as well.

Post 161712 by vapidave deleted for the following reason: Yeah let's not post "download whole album" links. -- LobsterMitten

CO2 is bad for you

Post 161629 by MrVisible deleted for the following reason: This is a little odd to have following up on your own recent Ask on basically the same subject; one or the other would be basically fine but both feels like it's getting into kind of odd hobbyhorsing territory that'd be better to avoid on the site. -- cortex

What would happen if Trump won?

Post 161615 by Foci for Analysis deleted for the following reason: This is going to go all politics, so go ahead and put it in the current election thread. -- restless_nomad

Birth In Nature

Post 161623 by Michael Tellurian deleted for the following reason: This is going over like a lead balloon, and the editorializing in the post isn't helping. -- restless_nomad

Trombone Shorty Backatown - Full Album

Post 161621 by vapidave deleted for the following reason: Hey, it's not super clear why a contextless and not-necessarily-legally-uploaded album will make an FPP, sorry. -- restless_nomad

The rise and fall of the Gopher protocol

Post 161561 by Wordshore deleted for the following reason: Yeah, probably better to sort out the "is this too problematic to make a good post" question first and post second; revisiting this after sussing out a better framing makes sense. -- cortex

Going and going and going...

Post 161549 by Urban Winter deleted for the following reason: Yeah this is a bit on the thin side, sorry. If this checks out feel free to flesh it out a bit and repost. -- goodnewsfortheinsane

Hit and run. And nobody cares.

Post 161570 by raider deleted for the following reason: There's no conversation to be had about this other than "how horrible" - that's not what we're looking for in a post here. -- restless_nomad

Shit floats up in the Register of Language

Post 161482 by Oyéah deleted for the following reason: Heya, this is a little bit on the opaque and "here's my personal opinion" side for the framing of a post on the front page. If there's something specifically interesting here in the links themselves above and beyond just "shit" being in print in this context, maybe give this another go that conveys that in a more straightforward fashion. -- cortex

The Voice

Post 161498 by mattdidthat deleted for the following reason: Sorry, trying to contain all Trump and election stuff in one thread at a time - maybe put these in the current election thread. -- LobsterMitten

"Chinese food, as with any part of a living culture, is not static."

Post 161466 by Room 641-A deleted for the following reason: It's great that the writer is having these realizations, but I think this is going to strike folks as pretty obvious in a way that's going to lead to repeating some very rancorous fights we've had too-recently. -- LobsterMitten

More proof that you shouldn't exercise

Post 161459 by tel3path deleted for the following reason: This is not a good way to present an article that probably isn't FPP material. -- restless_nomad

Police deactivate Korryn Gaines' Facebook uploads before killing her

Post 161417 by splitpeasoup deleted for the following reason: This is truly awful, but also is one of those cases where a truly awful real phenomenon intersects with weird circumstances of the particular example case, in a way that often makes threads on a particular case go really badly. -- LobsterMitten
