"i feel like i just kicked a hive of super-intelligent bees"
that's a quote from matt shadetek, who recently cause a lot of brilliant dialogue here (but mostly here) with his post "babel dancing in tongues" about cultural appropriation as potentially exploitative "tourism." i think overall the thread (particularly the dutty artz link) was really quite civil and thought-provoking. it sort of follows in the vein of "cotorro, sexo y mambo" on dutty artz and "rearguard opinion? (slackness b/w sexism & sexuality)" on wayne & wax .
also notable to me recently was the immense (1800+ comments!) debate over at boingboing.net following their removal of their posts mentioning violet blue.
also, don't miss "anarchism, mysticism & anemnesis" over at the absent narrative. so far the discussion is only me, laura and tait, but you can't beat the topic... the zines linked to (anemnesis 1 & 2) are worth the click on their own.
