Thank you all for the amazing David Bowie memorial post

I've had this open in a browser window since sometime a week ago Monday. There's been so many good links to videos, interviews, songs, plus all sorts of great stories. This kind of community is part of what's kept me on MeFi for so many years. <3

WaPo paywall

Could we try to avoid linking to Washington Post articles? [more inside]

This post ruled

I would like to call attention to this post, which links to a single comment in a youtube video thread, about one person's experience watching a teenage sword-wielder doing "moves" to a Sabbath song in 1979. I think it's a stellar post. [more inside]

A question of policy

In the Oregan under attack thread there was a well researched comment by phoque naming most of the brundy bunch which was subsequently axed with an indication to bring the matter here [more inside]

Can we just stop doing this?

This post is one of a number of posts I have seen on the site over the years exalting the dumb, dangerous, and illegal practice of trainhopping. Can we just call a moratorium on these posts? While I think I probably am more sensitive to this issue than most people here because reasons, I'd be exceptionally distressed and pained if someone were killed or injured doing something they saw romanticized on Metafilter.

Why no brick and mortar stores in the mall?

This has bothered me every year so I'm just gonna flat out ask: why no brick and mortar stores in the MeFi Mall? This just doesn't make any sense to me. I'm sure many MeFites own stores and would love to offer Christmas discounts to other MeFites in their city. I'd certainly do so at my record shop--I'd also like to support other MeFites who own independent businesses. What's the logic behind excluding those of us with small businesses simply because we do not sell online?

Rate of change pedantry

I don't want to single out a specific recent post, because my pedantic complaint is so not relevant and would harmfully distract from the discussion, but I have a request, my fellow Mefites: [more inside]

FanFare Pony: No spoilers above the cut, please

Rosebud is a [redacted]! [redacted] is [redacted]'s father! Bruce Willis was a [redacted] all along! And that's just the beginning! What spoilers for that new Netflix season that you shotgunned over the weekend will you put up above the cut next? Stay tuned! [more inside]

Proper deletion or "Metafilter VS Reddit" bias?

This post was deleted for the following reason: Sorry, framing this as side-taking in some kind of notional Mefi vs reddit thing isn't great, the imperative at the end isn't really Mefi form, and "here are just a bunch of random good things from reddit" is too loose a net
I guess I'm not seeing the editorializing. Bad call in my opinion: I thought that this post was precisely "Best of the web". What does the community think?
