Quickly switch to something else before more downmods come in.

Huh, I did search. Thanks search engine.

Would be better if we could just delete a post rather than having to scramble.

That which you cannot delete only makes you stronger!
steele said @ 9:00pm GMT on 24th Mar
what did you search for? Because searching for 'cat music' does bring up the original post. A number of other posts as well, but it does bring up the original.

Hmm... Any chance we could get those search results in chronological order? Or in the same sorting order we have specified in our user preferences?

Because with the way the search results page looks just like the front page, the natural assumption is that it's ordered the same way. If someone goes to post an article, searches for it, and sees a screen full of posts with dates from before the article in question was published, I think their natural assumption would be "Oh, this hasn't been posted yet," not, "Oh, I'd better scroll down past 30 posts from last year to see what was posted last week."

I'll look into it.
azazel said @ 9:04pm GMT on 24th Mar
I did, didn't see it. No chance of a delete post function?

No, gotta own that shit ;)

Simpler solution is to stop posting.
arrowhen said @ 3:32am GMT on 26th Mar
Even simpler solution is to stop taking fake internet points so seriously. :)

It has absolutely nothing to do with those, and everything to do with my own comfort.
Dienes said @ 2:45pm GMT on 25th Mar

Aren't Homophones smartphones with Grindr installed?

"Kitten" and "Chiton" are NOT homophones. At least not in American English.

Oops, meant to be a reply to mechanical contrivance's link

Also, I'd just like to point out that "Cocksucker" and "Buttfucker" are extremely satisfying words to say when you're frustrated at something/someone and are fully applicable to heterosexual people so let's take them back as not being homophobic.
rhesusmonkey said @ 4:34am GMT on 25th Mar
Sorry, like "Porch Monkey", you can't arbitrarily repurpose insults. Sure "Cocksucker" could be used for a girl in a hetero relationship, but I don't think it has the same gravitas as "Slut" or "Whore", because what kind of straight girl hasn't had a dick in her mouth at some point? It's just not something considered shameful unless she has a cock in each hand as well.

"Buttfucker" I suppose depends on if you're pitching or catching? Again, I think it's only considered condescending when taken to mean either party of a homosexual pairing, because porn has clearly desensitized folks to anal. Sort of how "Motherfucker" gets dropped on the daily and yet no one really stops to think "Am I saying i'm going to fuck their mom? Or are they going to fuck someone else's mom? They fuck their own mom?". IDK, I tend to swear a lot but my biggest frequent non-PC thing to say is "That's retarded", as well as describing situations as "a clusterfuck". I get more weird looks to the former than the latter.
robotroadkill said @ 1:40pm GMT on 25th Mar
Actually "cocksucker" I apply only to inanimate objects. Like, "I can't get this cocksucker to print!" But you're right, I can't do this on my own or I'm just a homophobic buttfucker.
rhesusmonkey said @ 5:05am GMT on 26th Mar
If you truly find an inanimate object that sucks cocks, you may become King of the World.

Because there's no -1 gay mod.

Is there a point to be made here? Maybe. But nobody likes preachiness.
Am I being preachy in saying that? Maybe.
azazel said @ 3:09am GMT on 26th Mar
I was trying to avoid repost downmods. Didn't have anything worthwhile to post.
