Oh, I thought it was more "Is *clearly* inflammatory, abusive, and otherwise over the edge of professional disagreement" than "unarguably and undeniably trollish".

I would add though, that it doesn't have to be inflammatory AND over the edge of professional disagreement to be abusive and thus worth deleting. Abusive things should not be kept, regardless of their other merits.

    Well, you could argue inflammatory, though honestly I'm dubious. Abusive, though? There's only one node in this thread I'd call abusive, and the root node ain't it. Stupid, very much so, but that (thank goodness) isn't grounds for reaping.

    I'd stick with trollish, in the pre-slashdot sense, if I were arguing for its deletion, but honestly I don't see a point to deleting it. What harm does it do? Other than make people with better things to do waste time arguing over its deletability, of course... ;-)
