I recall seeing a comment within the past few months that I am 97% sure was on Metafilter and am trying to hunt down--details are so hazy that I am having trouble searching/Googling. It was about an African-American woman from the late part of the 19th Century or early part of the 20th Century who was an early advocate for civil rights and who is largely overlooked but who has an interesting history. Possibly framed in a "she totally kicked ass" kind of way in said comment. Notably, she managed to get an advanced degree/degrees at a time when that was systemically very challenging. Ring any bells? Know it isn't much to go on.

Currently there's no way to, for example, announce a house party without the whole world seeing where the host lives.

I can't login using Lynx. Specifically, I can't get Lynx to even prompt me to accept any cookies from Metafilter, and I think I know why. The problem seems to be with when cookies expire. [more inside]

Could Metafilter's survival lie in a private member's homepage? [more inside]

Is there a way to get rid of the consistent problem of a plural tag and a singular tag "splitting" the posts that appear under a tag subject? [more inside]
