Net Neutrality day: September 10th
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]

Help me find that comment about parenting done right
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?

Time travel / Science Fiction writers (can't find thread)
Hi, not sure if this is the right place to ask, I tried MetaChat, too, but there was a thread I now can't find, it was about science fiction writers and the problem with writing from a place of omniscience when writing this time of science fiction. Anyone know what I'm talking about. I wanted to read it during lunch, can't find it!

Mathowie 1, Travel Agency Shenanigans 0
Mathowie has a Medium post detailing ongoing legal demands by Sundance Vacations to delete a 2010 Ask Metafilter thread about their business, and later demanding personal information about users in that thread. Short version: Sundance, or somebody claiming to be from Sundance, may have doctored an unrelated court order to aim it at Metafilter. The story has been picked up at BoingBoing, Popehat (where Ken White has praise for how our fearless leader handled the situation) and presumably elsewhere as well.

What Post Was That: Autodidact in Poverty?
Please help me find this post: An opinion piece from a larger publication about what the author would do if they were a poor (black?) kid, and wanted a good education. The author suggested they'd teach themselves using something like Khan Academy or other opencourseware. [more inside]
