Little Mosque on the Prairie

So Little Mosque on the Prairie debuted tonite (and last). Any comments, concerns?
There was a bit of a brou-ha-ha regarding it.

Um. That thread is still open.

I think you may understand the purposes and intentions of Metatalk, or at least have overestimated the latitude of meaning in the phrase "Metafilter-related".

A whole spinoff site was created to siphon off aimless chat from Metatalk (and though it is quite successful in its own right, it may not have accomplished that aim all that well, it seems).

I think you may misunderstand.... Ooops.

So you may or may not realize this, but that thread's still as open as [insert name of young female pop star/actress/ heiress]'s private regions. FYI.

My back hurts. Why?

Also. I decided to add starvos as one of my "contacts". I thought you should all know. I accidentally made him a "crush", though, and he was supposed to be my "muse".

well, that's what I want you to think! *evil cackle*

I've always wondered how far back the average Metafilterer is willing to read and if they really pay attention to new comments in threads a couple of days old. Would there be further discussion on stuff like Little Mosque on the Prairie, or is multi day discourse mainly endemic to threads about fundamentalist/evangelical Christianity and its crazy doings? I know I've wanted to comment on old stuff... maybe I just should go ahead and do it. Maybe I am doing Metafilter all wrong.

Since before it was official and put on the menu and everything, the My Comments page is the very first place I hit when I visit the site. For those who are more interested in the conversation than the links, or equally so at least, nothing else makes a damn lick of sense! It's automagically delicious!

I do that too...I started doing it because for some reason, when I start typing 'metafilter' in the firefox address bar, the first autocomplete option IS for My Comments. I decided the universe just approved of this behaviour, but how do they actually arrange the autocomplete order?

Holy monkeys, I didn't know you could do that! Man, maybe I should click on the other stuff up there... I guess no matter how long you've lurked prior to becoming a five dollar n00b, there are just some things you can't understand about Metafilter until you actually become a five dollar n00b and start asking questions.

Glad to be of service.

I just load up my old comments and read through them, chuckling ever so slightly as I do. Then, sometimes, I come across something truly breath-taking and my mouse wavers hesitantly over the [ + ] symbol as I contemplate favoriting one of my own comments. But by then the Kraft Dinner is usually at a boil and I'm forced to leave my literary masterpieces for a culinary one.

I was so close to favoriting that one I let out the softest of gasps before I withdrew my anger fingers from the mouse.

Yes, I meant to type "anger fingers". It's trademarked.
posted by The God Complex at 4:02 AM on January 12, 2007


I've just trademarked the phrase 'It's trademarked™'.

Suck it, haters!

This thread clearly demonstrates that you don't need a ceiling cat to equal the obnoxiousosity of the days before Matt banned the image tag. Keep up the good work, yeomen.

You, my good man, as near as I can tell thanks to my limited exposure to your important internet opinions, are almost completely full of shit. But I think I love you. Will you be my swell textual pal, and swap cynical dismissals of other people with me until the sun sinks into the wine dark sea?

Keep it on MeFi, in the open thread, thanks.
