Happy one-year anniversary to the emotional labor thread! Any reports from the field on changes (big or small, temporary or permanent, concrete or otherwise) Jess Zimmerman's article and the testimonies in the thread engendered (pun intended) in your life?
Did you know there are transcripts available for several episodes of the Metafilter podcast? Did you know these transcripts are compiled by volunteers? Did you know that it's WAY easy to transcribe the podcast, thanks to transcription software Fanscribed? It's all true! But here's the thing: Metafilter needs your help to transcribe more episodes of the podcast! [more inside]
Not asking about anyone in particular, I'm just kind of curious generally. How do mods here, and elsewhere, tell when a user has joined specifically for the purpose of commercial or political astroturfing? How do you sniff out Pepsi Blue?

I'm trying to find an old post that appeared on MetaFilter some time back. It was a YouTube link to some kind of fake commercial, though I don't remember at all what it claimed to be selling, just that there was a woman doing the whole testimonial and it went slowly off the rails.

It's a hard hard month in a hard hard summer. I just wanted to remind people that this is a great community, and we agree on more than we disagree on, and we should all look out for each other a bit. James Comey said before Congress yesterday that the only two things he has of value are the love of his family and friends and his integrity. MetaFilter has helped me develop both of those things over the years, and I hope it's been positive for others. So, we should support each other and love each other, and we should take it easy on ourselves when we need to do that. XOXOX
You should post that. That link you saw would make a good post - you even said so. Post it! [more inside]
