Why is MeFi turning into the Josh Millard Fan Club?

I have noticed that Metafilter is failing its original premise. it is increasingly NOT a "best of the web" resource, nor is it a true "community weblog".
It seems increaasingly more like the private Josh Millard Fan Club. He posts his ego-ridden crap and his very bad folkie music, and people applaud him.
So, to demonstrate my point, I have chosen some random threads from the last four years.
Please note that the following are only a small sampling. There are many, many more.
And of course, cortex also has his own private half-assed "ironic" joke site that looks like Metafilter. I did not find it funny or ironic at all, merely sad.
Does ANYONE on MeFi EVER criticize cortex? I was unable to find any examples.
(Although I did find some posts he deleted, for strange or meaningless reasons.)
This blogger has a lot of harsh things to say about Metafilter and cortex. Is he right or wrong?
All the smart people have left Metafilter in disgust, I suspect. Leaving behind the Josh toadies and the cowards. It appears that the "moderation" of Metafilter is a failure.
Please, prove me wrong, in a manner that is intellectually better than mere childish ad-hominem attacks. If you can offer some cogent and believable criticism of this post, maybe I'll post again--with evidence that MeFi's moderators are also suppressing posts that criticize Israel.
