A MODest proposal: Should we to be able to call out people in Meta only?
This works extremely well on metafilter. Here is a example. It keeps all the crap in one tidy little place. In threads there are often comments from mods instructing people to take it to META if they care that much.
If people are going to go at each other we might as well do it in public so people can declare a winner. At least this way it won’t fuck up the sections of the site most people read.
