Can I get an RSS feed of my own AskMe questions?

It's a pony, but one a lot of people would want to ride, I hope.

I'd love to see an RSS feed of the comments of AskMe questions I post (and for that matter, blue and grey too, though separately), so that I can keep an eye on the responses to me over time.

people outside this board can and will read whatever you post

Today I get interviewed by a lawyer about this post. Not specifically about that incident, but as supporting evidence to try and get the store in question to settle a different court case. The lawyer has told me that the security department has already admitted to criminal behaviour. Considering that this event occured at least 5 years before I made that post, I've already expressed how little I remember. I expect to say "I don't remember" a lot. I just bring this up as a reminder that people outside this board can and will read whatever you post (remember our own shoplifting community?).

Time between initial posting and final response

This really isn't a pony request, but it would be cool to see what FPPs and AskMe questions had the longest time period between their initial posting and the final response. I'm amazed that there continue to be posts regarding Mark Foley long after it's dropped off the front page.

Divorce too often recommended as solution

This sort of thing irks the hell out of me. When I asked for advice on getting my picky wife to eat well while pregnant, I also got advice like this ("my question in your circumstances would be about divorce lawyers"). I've seen a number of others like this too over the last year(s), advocating divorce or 'dumping' for any sort of relationship issue. Can we get a smackdown on these idiotic AskMe answers?

Posts roll off AskMe's front page too quickly.

Mathowie hates late people! ;-)

Is it possible to have the AskMe front page show the last 12 hours of questions instead of whatever it currently does (a number? a lesser time?)? As of now, questions asked in the morning appear to get many more replies than ones asked at night, which scroll off the bottom as the morning-risers repeatedly ask where they can get a tattoo or a decent meal in New York. ;-)

A followup and thank you for two AskMe posts

A followup and thank you for two AskMe posts: here.

1. I don't have cancer. Yay! Recovery from surgery was a bitch though.
2. I have a daughter named Molly. Yay! Named with good advice given in another AskMe thread (pick something everyone knows how to spell, but few people are using).

we bought a 1999 Subaru Forester

Back in December I asked for vehicle recommendations, and I just wanted to follow up: we bought a 1999 Subaru Forester, based on the words here and of a friend of our who owns an Outback. What it all came down to was good value, great safety, and even though I paid more than I wanted to I'm happy with this step up instead of a step sideways into a RAV4 or a junkier, older vehicle. Thanks!

AskMe: make an exception to prepare me for a diagnosis of a possibly life-threatening condition.

Any chance I could Ask a day early?

I've got a medical problem that I'm seeing multiple doctors about, including one tomorrow. There is a distinct possibility of something serious and life-threatening, but I want to be prepared before I head to the doctor and I want to alleviate my growing 'worst case' anguish. Thanks.

I would like a slow pony.

I would like a slow pony.

I, question-filled as I am, would love it if I could front-load my AskMeFi questions which are then autoposted at the end of my week's delay. I'd even be happy if that happened a day later (8 days wait)...the important point is that I forget the question I absolutely needed to ask because I'm kind of dumb.

Thx!

Can I AskMe about my website?

Ok don't know if this is permissable...I'd like to AskMeFi about my own site, but not as self-promotion. I'd like build a shortlist of why it sucks and what I can do about it. Ok to do so?

User complaining about comment deletion

My second of two comments made in this thread http://ask.metafilter.com/mefi/25241 was removed apparently because I disagreed with someone who was complaining that the tangents related to the discussion were not germane to it (http://ask.metafilter.com/mefi/25241#399539).

Of course, since I'm posting this, I disagree with the removal. If this is standard way, we are limiting the involvement of human opinion in Ask MeFi, and end up with nothing more than regurgitation of facts that could probably be gained much better elsewhere on the internet.

Could the person who moderated this clarify the removal?
