Bad deletions

I have seen at least three really great posts on the NAACP situation deleted in the past few days. I guess there's a new Metafilter policy on this, but can the mods explain their reasoning? It doesn't seem, to me, to be newsfilter or "weird lady" filter, since the deleted posts have very good context and interesting depth.

Dream a little dream of me....

Ctrl-C, Ctrl-V

Does anyone remember one of the extended riffing sessions from maybe a year or two ago that involved people copying and pasting massive amounts of previously-posted one-sentence comments as part of the joke? Mods definitely told people to cut it out/down at some point as well because it was getting out of hand. I can't remember any of the context but I want to see it again.

What is your awesome/favorite tattoo?

In honor of another contentious tattoo thread, I'd like to solicit information about what great tattoos mefites have on your body or have seen in the wild. Good vibes only. What is your good tattoo story?

State of Metafilter, and funding update

It’s been a busy year on Metafilter, with some big changes over the last twelve months.  Some of the hardest changes were the result of the financial difficulties that came to a head last May with significant staffing cuts.  And the best thing to happen for the site was the tremendous outpouring of generosity from Metafilter’s members in response to that financial crisis, through voluntary funding of Metafilter.  

I want to thank all of you again for your support, and give you an update on where site finances are now, how funding has helped, and how we’re trying to make it easier to support the site in a way that works well for you—including a new alternative to PayPal. [more inside]

Looking for a lost comment

I give up. I can't find a really awesome comment which I believe was in Ask.me about costuming for television and women's undergarments. The gist of the comment was rich, good girls or women characters with otherwise desirable traits were Spanx'd, Hollywood-taped and underlined to within an inch of their lives while poor, bad, slutty girls or women characters with otherwise undesirable traits were left without decent foundation garments. Periodically I scour my favorites for it and search for it through the google, but I can't pull it up again. Did *you* say it? Do you remember it? Did I imagine it or read it somewhere else? The bra conversation on the front page finally pushed me over the edge to asking the community if someone else can put a finger on it.

Hive Mind Aggregator

After making two of my three most commonly recommended recommendations yesterday over in Ask, I was thinking it could be cool to come together and post here, in one place, all of the most useful things we've come across and the things that we find ourselves repeating thread after thread. Maybe someone will find something worthwhile here they never thought they needed! [more inside]
