My question is a two parter. I spend way too much time surfing the net, and sometimes come up on "stuff" that I think might make a good post here, but because I am fairly new by Metafilter standards, I am not sure it would be a good post. Is there a way for me to "unofficially" run my thoughts through someone PRE-post? I would rather not be humiliated publicly, which is why I ask. Secondly, even if I was feeling up for a good potential whipping on any given day, I am pretty bad with the technical aspects here. I would really do so much better if I had some one on one help.

This isn't the first time I wanted to post something, yet didn't because of the above listed reasons. I seriously doubt that with all the lurking we got going on here, that I am the only one feeling this way. Is there a way for us to deal with this?
While this is being discussed, if someone would want to offer up their personal help to me, I will be more specific with this most recent thing which I find fascinating and worthy of discussion here, even though I have no clue how to post or if I should. If that person feels that this is worthy of a post, then they can roll with it in order to get it out there in a timely fashion. My objective on this particular suggestion is just to get something out there now, because by next week it will be old, if it isn't already. (All that, assuming it is front page material, while it just might be newsfilter?)
