We were ahead of the game back on 9/11.

I'm already sad, the commercialism is just making things worse.

Am I the only one who is disgusted and depressed by the coverage of the 10th Anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks? [more inside]

Containing the "10 Years After" Posts

MeFi was a big part of my experience of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. I want to skip the concerned, oh-so-caring, oh-so-sincere newscasters, who are pumping fatuous bilge on overtime. This is a good link. Can we please keep the Sept. 11 "10 years after" posts corralled? Many people need them to exist, but MSM is on hyper-saturation with it, and I don't want more of that.

9/11 Live thread?

Where's the Sept 11, 2001 live thread? MeFiFu failing me. It remains probably the best thing on the web about the event.

US-centric posts on 9-11

A usa-centric post is surely not the best of the web.

Conspiracy theorists turn up in implosion discussion

Ok, so I'm guessing that we should add building implosions to the list of "things we can't talk about on Metafilter?"

No more conspiracy theories!

Are crackpot September 11 conspiracy theories the best of the web? Do we need more posts like these? Twice in one week? I think not.

9-11 Tribute Overload

Can we agree not to post any more 9-11 links today? I will Nevar Forget, but it's all been said to death.

Likewise, let's have just one post on December 7th.

Moratorium on 9-11 posts?

Matt: Given the insanely redundant traffic it's already generated, how about a several day or weeklong moratorium on Farenheit 9/11 posts, or perhaps a general thread like the Reagan one? Do we really need a new front page post every time somebody farts in Moore's general direction?

User reports links he posted causing derail

The links I posted in the 9/11 thread seem to have inspired an arguement which is derailing the thread. [More inside.]

September 11th anniversary.

Next Thursday is the second anniversary of Sept 11th. The inundation is already starting both here and in all other media. Mayhap the anniversary will be a good time to talk about anything but (i.e. actively posting non-9/11 material)? Or am I being stone cold and inhuman?

How much will we talk about 9-11?

Can the September jitters, already being felt from all sides of the political table, be in any way lessened or avoided?

9/11 anniversary special policies?

There is an onslaught coming. In nine days it will be the one year anniversary of 9/11. What is our policy with FPP on that day? Are there guidelines for such "busy" day?

Help find this 9/11 thread for a reporter

A reporter asked me this question in email, which I couldn't answer. Does this ring a bell for anyone? If so, I'll paypal five bucks to the first person to find the appropriate thread (I'll ask the reporter to pay me some research fees)

"I'm writing to you today to see if you can help me with a search I'm doing or perhaps offer some suggestions. I'm working on a story about emergency dispatchers, and I remember an incredibly affecting thread about 2 months or so after Sept. 11 that had accounts from New York City dispatchers on their experiences that day. I've put every imaginable search term into the Mefi engine ("emergency operator", "operator," "Sept. 11," "911," "dispatcher", etc.) but the search either times out or comes up with nothing."

Metafilter in Yahoo Internet Life November 2001.

Don't know if it's been mentioned - Metafilter shows up a few times in the November edition of Yahoo Internet Life, including a six-comment snip of the original 9/11 post.

9-11 discussions losing strength

Is it just me, or has the wind gone out of MeFi's sails in terms of discussions relevant to the Big Question? [inside]

Free will's a bitch.

Is this maybe not the best hornet's nest to stir up again? It got pretty ugly last time, and this is just a different salvo in that same MeFi street fight...

Is a link to the Onion never justified?

Sometimes conventional wisdom simply doesn't seem to apply. Or does it?

9-11 abbreviations disrespectful

There is something disquieting and deeply disrespectful about the way some well-intentioned but impatient members have chosen to abbreviate the September 11 massacres. After 0.81 there has just appeared a 911 designation. Is a geeky insider-code-thing acceptable in these circumstances?
Is it even understandable to non-savvy members? To non-Americans, for instance "911" is a Porsche or an emergency phone number or the 9th of November.
Also there seems to be something inconsiderate about saying "WTC" when so many others died in Washington and Pennsylvania.
I am at a loss for suggestions. It would be too jinxy to say History will probably record the attacks as the September Attacks(there already is a "Black September"...) - because September is not yet ended.
Any ideas, meanwhile?
I often need to refer to these events here at MeFi and would welcome a short, but respectul abbreviation.
Thank you.

Do we need all the news updates on 9/11?

I see a lot of front page posting with a slightly different angle on the same thing...with a link to story in the Independent or CNN or MSNBC...Shouldn't people be reading those sites if they want up-to-the-minute reports on the WTC and all its ramifications?

NYC Meetup

Some good news in Manhattan: an NYC webloggers' get-together. We are assuming that south of 14th street will be open by Friday night, but if not we will find a good replacement, I'm sure.

It'll do us all a world of good to get out and live a little.

NJ-Based Post-9/11 Services (Grief Couseling, Missing Persons)

There is so much going on the front page, I didn't know where to include this. I know this doesn't affect everyone as it's more New Jersey info, but putting it out in the hopes that the right people get it makes me feel less useless. (more inside)

Are these threads really right for MetaFilter?

Is this really the venue for moments of silence and lists of condolences? Especially when posters order 'do not comment here'? We saw how well it worked in the case of the first thread.

Please delete my post from Before

Please delete my silly post from early this morning, before everything went down. In the context of what's happened today, looking at it on the front page makes me feel silly and trivial.
