We had a very enjoyable dinnertime conversation tonight with our 8-year-old about the Ask MeFi question about the college student whose friend spilled water on her laptop and killed it
. It was really great to say, "OK, here's an interesting ethical question, what do you think she should do? What does Mommy think? What does Daddy think?" And then we talked about the various answers people gave, and how we felt about them, and the whole thing was great. It made me want to make this a regular dinnertime feature! MeFi parents, do you use MetaFilter as a teaching or parenting tool, and if so how?

I hate to be the poster child for tinfoil, but... (dons tinfoil hat): I have recently had several comments deleted from threads
relating to the Ukraine crisis.

Hello all :) I would like to post a meetup event. I am new to Halifax (Nova Scotia) and several AskMeFi responses suggested this as a good way to make friends. I would like to know the behavior Metafilter participants expect of the "hosts" ... More inside ...

Did MeFi just get a new favicon? It looks strangely different all of a sudden.

In the sidebar of the main Metafilter site, there's a Feb 21st entry* reading, in total:
brainmouse reminds us: "Check out deezil's and samsara's profiles as really fantastic starting points."
Say what now? That blurb would benefit from a few more words, like "Concerned about malware on your computer? brainmouse reminds us ..."
(* yes, I'm slow)

Is it just me? because i'm fairly uncomfortable and annoyed with how this thread
has become the "soandso show" of over 1/4 posts by one person...

AskMe is quickly turning into my favorite food resource of all time. It's a vast treasure trove of practical, easy to make recipes and good food-related advice shared by regular folks, not food writers or even, necessarily, hardcore foodies. Can we have a thread consolidating the favorite/most useful recipes and advice AskMe has produced?

I want to see all of the metafilter-linked youtube videos in a single Youtube playlist.

Youtube is Google and coercive. I just tried to simply 'Like' that husky/head-scratch video, and was told I had to log-in. I loged-out permanently several months ago when I couldn't comment without logging in. Deleted all my content, too.

Similar to fffm's pony request
from January, I wonder whether it would be possible to add another flag category or two.
