I hate to be the poster child for tinfoil, but... (dons tinfoil hat): I have recently had several comments deleted from threads
relating to the Ukraine crisis.

Episode 90 of the MetaFilter podcast was recorded today and runs about an hour and twenty minutes long, covering all the best bits from the MetaFilter universe for February.

Similar to fffm's pony request
from January, I wonder whether it would be possible to add another flag category or two.

Is it just me? because i'm fairly uncomfortable and annoyed with how this thread
has become the "soandso show" of over 1/4 posts by one person...

In the sidebar of the main Metafilter site, there's a Feb 21st entry* reading, in total:
brainmouse reminds us: "Check out deezil's and samsara's profiles as really fantastic starting points."
Say what now? That blurb would benefit from a few more words, like "Concerned about malware on your computer? brainmouse reminds us ..."
(* yes, I'm slow)

Did MeFi just get a new favicon? It looks strangely different all of a sudden.

Youtube is Google and coercive. I just tried to simply 'Like' that husky/head-scratch video, and was told I had to log-in. I loged-out permanently several months ago when I couldn't comment without logging in. Deleted all my content, too.

Since not everyone is USian, I think it would be a good idea for people to refrain when possible from using "we" when discussing the people of the United States. This especially rankles when discussing military action, as in "we should drop a nuclear weapon," as even fellow citizens may not want to be included in that "we".

I was in the process of replying to an ask me post, that I don't think violated any guidelines. In the process of responding, a little notice popped up that it was deleted. I don't want to go into specifics as to what the post was about if the poster asked for it to be deleted. I'm just curious how often this happens and what the reason is. The broad strokes description was that the post was a complicated relationship/mental health question, and the poster seemed to be in a lot of distress.

Nice MF shoutout from Mark Morford in his latest post about trolls...

I'm pretty sure it's one of the unofficial Twitter accounts, but does anyone know what happened to the @askmetafilter
feed? It looks like it stopped updating on the 5th. This feed was nice to have since it used the question title as the tweet rather than starting with the question itself like the @mefigreen
feed. Thanks all.

page on the MeFi wiki is a helpful compilation of resources for people who are struggling with depression, suicidal ideation, alcoholism, domestic violence, and sexual assault. It's also a living document, originally created through the collaboration of MeFites
over three years ago in memory of Bill Zeller
, and I'd like to continue the conversation about how we as a community can make it even better.

My name is Ardiril (aka mischief), and I am an internet troll personality
[via NickySkye]. I am not the only troll here. With this post, I remove my option of denial. Who else among you will accept my challenge to change?

Yesterday's FPP about aedison's misgendering while in detention
went... not so well. Some thoughts on what went wrong and how threads like this could go better inside.
