Back on April 20--three full weeks ago--I saw this AskMe about Sherlock/Watson fanfic
, and idly clicked on it. Then I followed a few links, because why not? I'm a curious sort of person.

is a pretty sharp piece on how the constructed media of hipsters ends up displacing more salient criticism (including a good line about how obsession with limning the "hipster" has removed "counter" from "counter-culture").
What's the discussion? Immediately, it starts out with the same old hipster tropes of MeFi with too many folks who clearly haven't read the fucking article.

100/day just isn't enough anymore, given the increasing volume of quality discussion on this site. Could the daily favorites limit please be raised???

A post about how to use "Metatalk" skill to discuss communication problems
and it hasn't been deleted.
But I thought we could discuss why it hasn't been deleted.
Communication is important, I'm just sayin'

I'm referring to this
question and this
response. Look, Unified Theory, I'd like to give you the benefit of the doubt here, and assume that maybe you didn't read the entirety of a rather long and rambly OP. And I actually agree with parts of your post - I hated the way the question was phrased as well, and I agree that the assumption that it's automatically creepy for an older guy to be attracted to a younger woman is both sexist and ageist. And,
I agree with the many other posters stating the the OP that she handled the situation in a very naive way, and needs to give serious thought to how she sets her own boundaries in situations like this.

I had a huge Eurovision post written and ready to post that I was saving for this evening. Then this was posted.
I do feel a bit frustrated by this, but it's a good post, just not the post I wanted to make. Details inside.

It is my sad duty to relate some unfortunate news. Matthew Schuler, known here as Prince of Cups
, passed away this morning.

Help me find AskMeFi questions where posters get advice that is nothing at all like what they would have expected.

Lots of comments and answers make for good cocktail party stories, bon mots
and so on. For instance, this one
is a personal favorite of mine to relate when people start talking about Dune
. What are your favorite comments that make good telling-stories (and not just reading-stories)?

We can find "popular favorites" going back a day, week, month, all-time. And we can find all of the posts with a given tag. Is there a way to combine these two features, to find, say, "Posts with the tag [books] that have been most favorited?"

Last night I dreamt that some guy found out some supersecret information about the servers that Metafilter runs on and was going to blackmail us!

I have a vague unsubstantiated feeling that some comments I've written got tossed into the memory hole. Am I being paranoid, or is this normal with some justification I'm not aware of?
