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'

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

I don’t want to point out anyone or any thread in particular, but something I find odd; In almost every MT thread associated with any small controversy (and they’re all small) someone will jump in, usually right away, with "we should close this up", which as far as I can tell is not up for vote but at the discretion of the mods.

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!

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.

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???

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?

I just started using a Nike+ FuelBand bracelet, and I am wondering if other Nike+ using Mefites would be willing to become "friends" so that we can support/motivate one another. We would be able to see one another's fitness progress, and it could be a friendly competition/motivator.
According to Nike, to be able to add one another, we would have share our Nike+ username, email, or our real names.
I'll go first: my Nike+ username is 4ster4.
Thanks in advance for your help, inspiration, and motivation!

I could have sworn that there was an AskMe not too long ago about sending one text message but having a different one come up on your recipient's phone. Of course, I can't find it. Am I thinking of something I read somewhere else, or does this question exist?

We met homeless, hatchet-wielding hitchhiker Caleb “Kai’ Lawrence McGillivary in February
. He became a meme. Earlier this week Kai was arrested for murdering a lawyer
. "I believe that everyone is a little safer with this person off the streets," the prosecutor said. (This is a follow-up)

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.

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.

Good evening. I am considering the purchase of an account on MetaFilter for my fiancee. She may find it of use for work (academic librarianship, cataloging), domestic (cats, pies) and leisure; I've sent her pointers to FPPs on here which she has found of interest, and she may be able to contribute questions and comments to AskMe. But...

I'm hoping this gets back to mrgrowler, he expressed interest in a solution.
When I asked this question
, I had an idea that the culprit might be my blood pressure medicine. But I was exploring other options. The doctor even sent me to drink barium. The radiologist gave me half of a tip, he said that I was having spasms. I finally got desperate enough to talk to my doctor about changing meds. I haven't had an episode since.

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.
