Looking for a comment on AskMe, probably within the last few months, that linked to an article about powering through a relationship after the honeymoon period was over. [more inside] posted by Beaker's stripey socks at 1:41 PM -
In some ways fanfare seems incredibly popular already: there is a constant stream of new posts, lots of TV shows covered, and a growing number of films old and new. On the other hand, discussion within each post tends to be pretty brief, with a fairly small number of comments and little back and forth dialog. I don’t know if my preferences reflect the majority but I’d love to have more meaty, deeper discussions about the movies I’m interested in. I wonder if some redesign away from the traditional mifi scrolling posts format would help make the discussions deeper and more ongoing. [more inside] posted by latkes at 9:11 AM -
After the enhanced update of the diediedead Greasemonkey script, I received several requests from MeFites for a native Chrome extension, mostly because Chrome's Tampermonkey doesn't support all features, such as the context menu. I promised and, finally, I deliver: Nancy, available at the Chrome Web Store. Yeah, kind of a mouthful. [more inside] posted by mdevore at 5:55 PM -
I'm looking for an old comment/FPP about an academic playing cards and drinking with some old friends in the projects (or an otherwise troubled urban area). [more inside] posted by still bill at 5:24 PM -
MetaFilter is participating in the Battle for Net Neutrality on September 10, 2014. For the duration of September 10, you'll see a small modal window linking to a site explaining Net Neutrality and giving you ways to take action. You can also hide it by clicking the [x] and you shouldn't see it again on the site for the rest of the day. [more inside] posted by mathowie at 2:39 PM -
A while back, there was a great post on the blue about people who don't take an adversarial/territorial approach to their kids' sexuality -- basically the opposite approach of people who tell parents of young girls that they're "gonna need to buy a gun, lol."
Within that thread, I think one MeFite had a particularly touching comment about how he was welcomed by his girlfriend's family, rather than threatened, and so when they did have a pregnancy scare, they felt ok going to her parents for help.
I have searched and searched, but I'm not finding anything. Does this ring a bell with anyone? posted by shiu mai baby at 7:46 AM -
