Maybe I'm weird. It made me giggle out loud when I thought of it.

I think your suggestion has just been MeJected.

I would not buy any project called "MeJects."

...unless I really wanted it. But even then, I would have to think hard.

And contributors could be called MeJectulators!

I like it!

I'm not sure about making it official, but I certain think "meject" should be part of our collective vocabulary.

Yeah, it sounds too much like 'rejects' for it to mean 'metafilter projects.

MeOb

like an obgyn... only different. The cold instruments in intimate spaces is purely intellectual

MeJect sounds like some sort of perverted ingestion of bodily ejections, like drinking your own tears. 'Christ, I'm so depressed today I've been sitting here for hours lapping at the salty mejects dripping from my eye-holes.' See also: auto-erotic watersports, eating earwax.

I'm think someone already suggested MePro, which is still goofy sounding.

Damnit, where's the image tag when I need it!?

I think its Metarded.

I endorse "meject" instead of "deleted" for when posts go bye-bye.

I can see it in Meta now: "Why was my stupid question mejected?"

Mehject.

It's more appropriate for Jobs - where the Mejected go.

How many random thoughts do you have? Is this a fair example of one of them. Having had a random thought do you ponder it at all? Do you have any non-random thoughts? If so are these other sort of thoughts better than the random variety? What have been your thoughts on Google as a name? Where can I learn more?

The official nickname for MetaFilter Projects is "Projects", see up in the navigation links at the top of the page? That's as official as it gets around here.

I feel so sorry for you.

"Mejects" should be the label on the tab that lists only projects with 0 votes.

I think you should not post your random thoughts to MetaTalk.

I suggested "Tell MeFi" to match up with "Ask MeFi". Everyone ignored me. But Zathros is used to that.

Well, we could always have a Mefi-only baby shower gift registry called OB/jects, then.

I'm sorry.
