Controlled vocabulary for divestment
  [vote for,

There needs to be some kind of standardized hierarchical quantification of disregard.

so for instance:

rat's ass

NT flying fuck BT two shits

       What about a scale of fishbones and croissants, maybe +/- 2.5 of each?
csea, Feb 27 2013

       I don't know, in the case of HB ideas i usually think of there being levels of disregard within the 0 fishbones, 0 croissants category. So the ultimate divestment would be 0 fishbones, 0 croissants, 0 annos, 10 paragraph idea and extensive linking, all by the author. That would be something like saying, "the HB doesn't give a flying fuck through a rolling donut about your idea". Whereas, 0 fishbones, 0 croissants, but multiple annos -- but all the annos are on a complete tangent and devolve into flaming -- would be something less strong like, "HB doesn't give a rat's ass about your idea. Whereas, any thing with multiple fishbones I would not say is in the category of not having a fuck or a shit or a rat's ass given about it, since it has inspired energy of some kind, and so wouldn't indicate divestment as much as it would repulsion, I would say, or revulsion, or ire.

       This regularised scale of indifference should be described as a mehtric.

       // a mehtric // + The idea, not not much. If you want a precision, rate it on a scale of 0 to 100. Language is used for better reasons than precise quantification, and I don't want to fear that by using a phrase that fits the context that I will be implying some precise level of disregard.
