Emoji in Metafilter posts

This isn't so much a complaint about emoji being present in a front page post or even in the title of a front page post. Mostly this is a comment about a micro-trend that's been surfacing where a front page post title consists only of emoji characters, or even just a single character with no context given in text.

In praise of the edit window

I just used the edit window to close a parenthetical statement I'd left open by accident, and I was just thinking about how much I have appreciated it since its introduction.

And my winners are ......

Inspired by Eyebrows McGee's post Strange Fruit, I decided to offer a $50 prize in the best of December contest.
On reflection after I finally got my broadband back I decided that I could do a bit better than that as I liked several posts very much.
Please would the following mefites memail me with a valid email adress to get a $20 Amazon gift card. You may do what you like with it but it would please me if you purchased a book(s) either electronic or traditional.
dhruva - The true history of the Paisley design
quiet earth - (Canine) Guardians of the Corpse Ways
Pirate-Bartender-Zombie-Monkey - No Gloves, No Rounds, Plenty of Blood
nebulawindphone - Find eyes within, look for the door into the unknown country
and Eyebrows McGee for the inspiration.
Thanks everyone for another great month of posts.
