I just finished a small-scale purge -- Stalin would have been ashamed -- of some comments.
Discourse has recently taken an entertaining turn here at SMBIVA, and I'm pleased, but I also worry that mere vituperation tends to take over. It's a lemma of Gresham's Law.
Feel free to be as disagreeable and impolite and unparliamentary as you like, but humor my humorlessness, and try to work something into a comment that relates to the subject matter.
Yo'-mama-ing is fun to watch, when you've got a real pro doing it (shown at left, the hilarious Don Rickles, patron saint of insult comedy).
But none of us has so far shown the true divine gift, and like a real Upper West Side merit baby, I despise mediocrity.
