I just... you know, I think most people, when they're upset about something, don't really want to see others having fun with that.

There is indeed nothing worse than that in those situations. Vaguely tolerable on the Internet, but I don't think anything gets me more worked up IRL.

I have done something like that in the past more than once. I don't enjoy the least bit to see smart people sling mud at each other. I do it to draw attention to the fact that they are offering a spectacle to onlookers, and to make them question whether that's what they really want to do (instead of calming down, trying to see the other's person perspective, or reaching a compromise, etc.).

Obviously it only works when it's clear you are being ironic, which is harder online...

Okay, that's interesting. I don't think people will get that, though.

Also, if I understand the intention, then it's only a good idea if the discussion shouldn't take place, right? Or at least not in public.

Actually I like to think stuff like that breaks the tension when there is an argument/disagreement.  That's usually why I do it.

This is more the reason I expected, and I really think it doesn't come across that way, even if the intention is good.

The "onlookers" are metaphorical, might as well just be me. Whether the discussion should or shouldn't take place is not the point. It's more that the direction the discussion has taken is not going anywhere other than people shouting past each other, and I know they can do better.

Somehow I had never seen that one, despite its age.

The thing is : they already know. When you do that, it's because people are making a scene and you're uncomfortable, but do you really think the people fighting don't know that ? As someone who used to get angry really easily, let me assure you : they know. The best way to deal with it is to ignore it and go away, or ask them to sotp it/go away, not to mock them.

On the Internet, ignoring it is so, so easy and is the right solution 99% of the time.

You don't have to overthink it, it's just a popcorn post.

I'm arguing that it hurts feelings of the people who are having the stakes in the discussion.

Maybe that's only the case for me, because I'm sensitive, but I don't think so. Neither Adam nor Stef upvoted any of the off topic posts.

And it's not like not doing it is a big loss, there is an entire rest of the forum to post jokes in.

This never works. It defuses the tension for people who are not participating in the argument yeah, but not for the people you actually want to calm down.

I don't think it hurts anyone's feelings, it's just par for the course when you're having a heated argument online.

Bloody hell, my arm is in pain. I was giving blood, and I don't know if my phlebotomist was channeling Jacques Clouseau or Hannibal Lecter.

If I was a first-timer, that would have turned me off of giving blood entirely.

A good friend of mine once asked me join him in blood giving procedure to help his grandpa who needed it due to some forthcoming operation.
So we both took a day off and went to hospital, but they turned both of us down for some silly reasons which I don't remember.
We then got some beers, went to my place and watched a nice idiotic zombie movie. THE END.

A vampire movie would have been much more appropriate.

Well, remember that the report button isn't just for things like bad behavior, it's also for needs to be moved, or please make sticky, or whatnot.

Man. I had four strips of bacon yesterday. Was one automatically undercooked, one automatically overcooked? No, let's put a stop to that right here, all four strips were excellent.
