It's amazing the crap that comes out of some people's mouths and/or keyboards. As most of you know, it's not just Flickr that attracts the crapheads. What daft discussions have you fallen into, here or on blogs or message bases?

(Remember to check whether it's publicly viewable or members' only, if you're going to give a link.)

Latest one I've witnessed elsewhere: the lashback from wskrz' Jenny McCarthy says a gluten-free diet cures autism? Bunk! blog entry. Some people get fanatical, I tell ya!

Here on Flickr: there are so many, but they almost always involve a guy by the name of Steve and are usually in FlickrCentral or I've Been Banned. Currently people overreacting to the Orkut flap [YES, I feel it's wrong to swipe pictures; YES, it's very wrong to sexualize small children; but NO, freaking out about what Flickr is going to do about Orkut or tarbrushing that site isn't going to fix anything, and Flickr admins who've spoken up have said exactly that -- quoting one, "cram it wherever your culture believes in craming things"]. Formerly it was about Censrship, which happily has passed (the flap, not the blocking in repressed countries).

The nice thing about computers, Macs especially (having done dialup support for 8.x and 9.x and the first rendition of X), is that if there's a problem with the operating system you can wipe and reinstall. If there's a hardware issue, like failing fan and subsequent overheating which causes video processor issues, things can be repaired or replaced. He shoulda tried that. :)

She's listed me as a contact. I check in time to time.
After commenting on a photo on a 19-year-old male "friend" she has in new jersey that talked about how she would visit and they would "do stuff," she immediately deleted it. No idea why, other than talking about age of consent in New Jersey and whatnot. Although how lame is he? You can only doink a 13-year-old you met on Myspace? I'm pretty sure there are plenty of sluts in Jersey. I guess that's what you get for wearing girl jeans and using your hair to cover up half your face.

It was also by looking through her contacts I found an 11-year-old's stream that included myspace-esque photos of her in a bikini with the worst kind of comments. That stream has now been deleted[Thanks, Flickr!]

Young people don't know what they're getting into, imagining themselves as being mature enough to handle what one reaps when one sows that sort of attention-gathering thing.

Someone who has me as a contact (a favor I don't return) comments on my stream and I comment on hers, and the last time she uploaded pictures weeks ago they were underwear photos with writing in lipstick across her skin, with the caption saying "if you look at this picture, write a comment". It was not added to any groups. She's 15. I remarked after 72 hours and a point count over 700 that the ratio of views to comments was 100:1 so her mission failed.
(It's been 3 weeks and that number still holds: 1300+ views, 13 comments that weren't written by her.)

Yuppie review on amazon. It's for a Lite Brite:

My 3 1/2 year old daughter loves playing with her lite brite. I have to say when she received it as a gift I cringed. I didn't think it had any educational value and the small pieces were going to get all over the house.

Seriously, does every toy have to have a "educational" element to it?

OKAY, A REAL STUPID DISCUSSION! (that's rare for me...)
www.flickr.com/groups/backintime/discuss/72157613033977728/

Group: The Forgotten, for images of things that have been forgotten (decaying houses, stuff that isn't produced anymore, stc.)
Stats: 1300+ members, 16,500+ images at this moment -- with 30-90 new images per day

Posted by the admin: "Because the members of this group don't seem to want to partake in discussions, contests or games, I'm thinking of closing this one and having everyone move over to my other group, "I Love Abandonment". If I don't see enough participation here, with damn good suggestions for keeping this one running, then that's what I'm going to do. I have tried several times to engage you folk, and nothing seems to work. I feel like I'm just wasting my time here."

How fucking emo. He wants to close a very popular (in membership and daily posts) group because people won't talk to him? (Gary) the creator shouldn't have handed off the group.

[Update] It gets even more emo as she emulates a screaming eight year old about how it hurts her that people don't give a shit about anything useless she posts in the discussion area:

"Yes, I have been maintaining a happy group, and I made the mistake of thinking that my efforts may have been appreciated enough for at least ONE person to respond to ANY of my postings. I ask questions and make suggestions, and no one responds to those either. No one even writes to simply say, "You know, as much fun as games and contests are, I'm just not into them." I'm just ignored until I express my thoughts on merging the two groups, and then everyone gets their knickers in a twist. Well, if that's what it takes to know that my words get read by some of the members here, then that's what it takes. Rather than any of you writing directly to me to ask what's bothering me, you publicly admonish me for being upset. Then you go running to Gary. "Dad! Lynn's being a bad girl!" Not one of you seems to give a damn about me and my efforts to keep this group functioning. If you did, you would have written to me directly to find out why I'm upset. Sorry, but I'm a wee bit hurt by that. Have any of you ever heard the term, "Idle thread?" I knew there had to be some way to get SOMEONE...ANYONE to respond to me. You know...even a simple "no thanks" in response to ideas and suggestions would do. I don't care if you want to get involved or not, but being ignored is kind of painful."

She did sort of get over it later. She should have specified that there wasn't a template for what she was seeking to do initially -- or, your point, phrased that detail nicer in her first response. Be kind to those you have asked for help!

Tangentally yet not really related at all: I've always hated it when technical support doesn't pay attention to what the person has said or written, especially when the person knows or has predicted what a technician would ask and done those steps (and documented/announced such) before contacting.
The back-and-forth between a scriptmonkey and a customer who isn't dumb is way more annoying than biting the hand that feeds you. I survived a round of this with Kingston, the computer memory makers, the other day... no effort to resolve the problem ever was exerted on their end, it was easier for their monkey to say "guess it doesn't work" than for them to dig into why.
