If you're gay and in the military you get what you deserve, huh?

This comment in an AskMe thread posted by a gay veteran wanting suggestions for how to convince his military friends of the importance of considering gay issues in the coming election may not break the guidelines, but it's incredibly wrong-headed and I wanted to take issue with it here.

Rocking Homelessness?

I'm uncomfortable that this "How Can I Be Homeless?" question was approved. Seems to me this person should not be helped to pursue a course of action that is not only dangerous but which will almost certainly involve his making use of resources intended to help people who truly have nowhere to turn.

Catfood asked where she could find an intelligent weight loss support group online— a Metafilter for dieters, basically. Ferociouskitty set one up on Spark People. It seemed like a great idea that could use a little publicity.

New askme category: gifts

Can we get a "gifts" category in AskMe? People seem to ask for gift ideas quite often, and it doesn't really belong in "shopping" because it's about brainstorming, not sourcing.
