On the new Adult Content filter...

submarine_bells had this to say:

I really wish the current fad of auto-posting Twitter.. erm, output... came with nicely fashionable Twitter filters to put 'em in. I am *so* not interested in reading endless "I'm listening to a CD by Truffaut the Wonder Dog right now" or "I must remember to get pickled yak noses when I go to the market next" or "Goodness, isn't the sky big today?" posts. Fergawdsake, Livejournal, if you're gonna introduce stoopid new content-flagging functions, surely a flag for "Random Twitterings" would be more useful to the assembled multitudes than "May Possibly Contain Adult Content (If by Adult Content You Mean "More Sophisticated Than Play School")".

Context is unnecessary; that's the whole post. Cue Dubbya Pee, and all that.

robyn_ma is afraid of some very graphic Canadian public service announcements:

Canadians have no negative emotions. Occasionally they'll play at being emo in their LiveJournals to make us Americans feel less like the stress-cubes we are. But really they're just copy-and-pasting from American LJs. Nothing upsets Canadians. Canadians have Prozac naturally running through their veins. We Americans ingest capsulized Canadian blood just to get ourselves somewhere near Canadian equipoise. Canadians fear nothing and this is the reason for those PSAs: 'FOR GOD'S SAKE, YOU PEOPLE ARE DROPPING LIKE FLIES IN THE WORKPLACE BECAUSE Y'ALL DON'T BE GIVING A FUCK. KNOCK THIS SHIT OFF. HAVE A BASIC SENSE OF SELF-PRESERVATION.'

QWP, Context says there are no 'accidents.'

In the grand tradition of culinary metaphors, sevendials has an epiphany:

Let us presume, for a minute, that fanficcers are not writing fanfiction but making sandwiches.

(I know. There is not a lot of correlation between fanfiction and sandwiches, not least of which because you can't upload a sandwich to the Internet no matter how hard you mash it against your modem. All you get is a mess and, if you keep on doing it, a broken modem. Please, bear with me.)

Context has much more, including scenes at Helga's House of Doing Interesting Things With Bacon.
