Would it be possible to crank up the contrast between read and unread links in the "Contact Activity" column? Often half of the words are highlighted and it's a very crowded small space. I have no idea if it can be done easily and if not, I can still squint.

This is a question about the phrase "best of the web", as used in relation to Metafilter. I've been coming here for a while, for several years before I signed up, and I never remember seeing "best of the web" used officially to describe the purpose of Metafilter. The phrase "best of the web" appears nowhere in the FAQ. So where does this idea that MeFi is supposed to only be for links that are the "best of the web" come from? Anywhere official, or is it just something people made up over time?

The experience of composing a post in a thread that was open when you started, and then hitting the post button, and encountering "thread closed by mod, you can't post squat" gives me to know the feeling your dog had when you held that chicken leg out to him and then jerked it away so his poor old maw slamed shut POP on nothing and he gave you that long, sad "I trusted you" look.

Chicago's last meetup sounded great. I would totally have gone if I had known what the secret was. I would even have gone if I had just known the secret wasn't another bar, because Mefites generally sound like great people whom I'd like to meet in person. As someone who can't pass a card-check (and isn't such a fan of the whole loud-and-dark ambience anyway), can Chicago's next meet-up similarly have a portion that isn't drinks and dinner in a bar?

This post brought up a question for me. It isn't unusual for us to see AskMeFi questions posted by a member for a friend/spouse/workmate/whatever. How do we feel about that? Are we taking bread out of Matt's mouth when we use our account for someone who isn't willing to pony up the $5? And, does it feel different to help a non-member as opposed to one of our co-member-mefits? Not that I personally see it (as it happens now) as a huge issue, I was just curious as to the "how to manage an online community" philosophy bit of the question.

My computer used to stay logged into Metafilter. Now I got a new computer and it logs out every time I close firefox. I've checked my privacy settings. I do clear my history when I close firefox, but this doesn't include logged in sessions. I am not in private browsing mode. Oh also, I increase the font size on the site, but it doesn't stay increased. Site settings aren't supposed to clear either. What am I doing wrong? (Firefox 3.6)
