    This post was deleted for the following reason: The Thai coconut industry, and the role of macaques and changes in that over time, seems like an interesting subject for a post, but per some of the comments below I think that post could have more depth and currency in its sources and more care in the phrasing used. Maybe give this another go tomorrow? -- cortex

    This post was deleted for the following reason: Hey sorry this seems like "let's brainstorm" but since you don't have input on the process (?) it's more asking just to idly discuss, which makes it chatfilter. -- LobsterMitten

    This post was deleted for the following reason: This comic (the caveman-language and other caveman tropes, kidnapping a woman who fights back and then is miserable bearing children) is going to land very differently for Mefites today than it would have in 1975. Maybe better to post it with more context or in some way that doesn't just rely on readers taking it as if they had 1975 sensibilities? -- LobsterMitten

    This post was deleted for the following reason: Sorry for the delayed delete here; based on the reactions I think this is landing less as an intended oh-no-but-fun thing and more as a wow-legitimately-wish-I-hasn't-watched-that thing for folks -- LobsterMitten

    This post was deleted for the following reason: I know Scalzi's a MeFi local but I don't feel like this blog post or him personally makes a lot of sense as the thing to center further discussion about this on; he's got a comment section on that post which seems like a good place to engage with his writing specifically, and if there's a post to be made about some of the folks whose behavior he's discussing as fuckups beyond the existing Temkin and Ellis threads it should probably be framed more around those folks directly. -- cortex
