got me wondering if anyone has tried to buy Metafilter, how much an honest value would be, and if people would leave if a similar entity to Yahoo bought the Blue.

We met homeless, hatchet-wielding hitchhiker Caleb “Kai’ Lawrence McGillivary in February
. He became a meme. Earlier this week Kai was arrested for murdering a lawyer
. "I believe that everyone is a little safer with this person off the streets," the prosecutor said. (This is a follow-up)

I have a vague unsubstantiated feeling that some comments I've written got tossed into the memory hole. Am I being paranoid, or is this normal with some justification I'm not aware of?

Has there been any discussion of setting up a localization effort for MetaFilter, at least for UI and other site elements? If not, what do you think of the idea?
(My search-fu didn't turn up anything previous in the FAQ or MetaTalk.)

I'm curious what the status is on the idea of having an anonymous option for answering

Can someone explain for me why it seems like whenever there is good news (with political aspects) announced on the Blue, there always seems to be a compulsion to bring forth what The Other Side Says? I'm thinking of things like this
, for recent examples, but it used to be quotes from Little Green Footballs or whoever was the MetaFilter bete noire of the day. (This is not a callout and I'm not asking anyone to stop--I just don't understand why people would intentionally seek out opinions they find repugnant.)

Hey, what's the deal with a joke comment being deleted from this recent MetaTalk thread
? It was mild joke and I thought the bar for deleting comments from Metatal was much higher. I would ask in the thread, but when someone else did that, their comment was deleted, so here we are.

Is there a way to maintain the
professional white background
"plain" theme when not logged in? The solution can be as kludge-y as necessary if anyone wants to explain how I can do this myself; I need it to work on literally one computer.

A comment of mine was just deleted. Normally, meh.

The existing Boston Marathon Thread has not only turned unwieldy, it's now become the go-to place to put anything that happens in the greater Boston area (c.f., M.I.T. policeman shot, which while tragic, has nothing to do with the thread itself).
Given that there was a MAJOR change in the storyline with the release earlier today of the FBI's pictures and videos of the actual (not hypothetical, not crowd sourced) suspects #1 and #2, I'm going on record with a plea for someone to please make a new thread (which can stand on its own merits) about this, particular, new information so that this can be discussed and updated there (apart from the original thread, which was a thread about the bombing itself, not the search for the suspected bombers).

Would it be possible to add the front page "xx new" comments to the "my activity" tab?

Buy A Shirt - how long has that black shirt been there? Did it used to be a different color? I need to know if it's new or if I have absolutely horrible observational skills.

This Neat Flowchart
from over at Wired didn't seem like enough for a FPP but it's really interesting to see what all the Pyra Labs people have done since 1998, including starting things like Metafilter. "At the close of 1998, there were 23 known weblogs on the Internet. A year later there were tens of thousands. What changed? Pyra Labs launched Blogger, the online tool that gave push-button publishing to the people. It was a revolutionary web product made by a revolutionary web of people who went on to build much of the modern net. Here’s how Pyra
