Something is deeply wrong with MeFi... the front page is simply choc-a-bloc with great links!

Wow.

A distinct lack of newsfilter. A whole bunch of well-supported posts with multiple interesting links. A lot of "best of the [current] web" stuff. I haven't been this pleased with the MeFi front page for ages.

Thanks, everyone! This is great!

Someone has to put a stop to this insanity! Have you no shame, MeFites? Quick, someone put up a single link to a New York Times article or something!

Something is deeply wrong with MeTa...Someone is using it as a platform to evoke praise!

What the fuck, fff? I'll see you in Metatalk.

I'll see you in Metatalk.

(my new favorite meme, though it should be "I'll see you in Metatalk, asshole.")

It has been good. I think limepi started it out on a high note. I have already sent limepi's link to several people. Good stuff.

It's days like today when I miss mkultra's whining about fpps the most.

It's still fairly early, though...

Yeah, all the crap moved from MeFi to MeTa sometime on Tuesday.

24 Meta Posts in 2 days. Today is young, too.

What would rush think if he was here?

Alright, mk. i got a new fpp up there.

Just you try and get it deleted! Try try try!

Man, FFF, all you do is complain. Even when there isn't much to complain about. Damn.

Where is rush?
posted by caddis at 12:03 PM on February 17, 2005


He quit, caddis.
It just isn't fun anymore.
posted by graventy at 1:01 PM on February 17, 2005


Too bad, I liked him. Oh, he got on my nerves sometimes, but I liked him.
posted by caddis at 1:10 PM on February 17, 2005


Sadly, rush cried himself into a corner, sprang for the exit, and now won't risk losing (the remains of his) face by coming back. FWIW I liked him too, and thought he was treated unfairly, but he didn't handle it too well.

Now, brace for a n00b counterattack with single-link FPPs to news sites!

I'm surprised he ever found it fun at all.
posted by crunchland at 2:12 PM on February 17, 2005


Actually, didn't he leave a number of times before, and return? Possibly just a self-exile, for a short period.
posted by graventy at 2:16 PM on February 17, 2005


Graventy, no no no. You're thinking of dfowler.

He quite here.

And here
.

And made a public announcement of his quitting, even though he's only made 200 comments in over four years.

... as the saying goes: Internet, SERIOUS BUSINESS.

Good game today, friends.
