I run the greasemonkey script that shows deleted posts on the front page, mainly for curiosity's sake.
I've noticed this
(screenshot) happening, when a post is deleted. Basically, the greasmonkey script shows the post that was deleted, with the title of the undeleted post immediately before the deleted post appearing as the deleted post's title.
(Sorry if that's confusing; hopefully the screenshot explains this better.)
I don't know if this is an issue with the greasemonkey script or with metafilter.

IRL alerts still buggy? I proposed a Los Angeles meetup earlier today, and just received a MeMail from a fellow L.A. Mefite to tell me that he didn't receive the usual IRL notification. [more inside]

Bug? At last night's meetup in Hollywood, multiple attendees remarked that they did not get an IRL alert even though they've enabled it and have (sometimes) gotten alerts in the past. (More than half of the attendees showed because I memailed them about it.)

"You've hit your favorites limit for the day" - I have favorited 16 comments today. Nothing I've tried (cookies, etc.) has fixed it.
Anyone else having this problem? (Previously

When I load the front page, I can't see all these posts here
. Greasemonkey is listing them as deleted, yet I can comment in them.Furthermore, it seems to be random, since some newer FPPs are visible.

I can't seem to favorite comments or posts. I've tried to fave a couple of things today, and instead, it bounces me back up to the top of the page. When I refreshed the page, it seemed to hang on scripts.metafilter, and I briefly timed out when I logged out and logged back in. [more inside]

I was reading the FAQ, and I clicked on the "permalink" link for a specific question thinking it would be a link (anchor or something) for just that question, but instead it led to this page
. I think it happens with all the FAQs, not just this RSS one; they all go to metatalk threads. Thanks.

My mobile browser (LG Voyager) shows a URL Errors whenever I try to select a "more inside", "x comments", or "x answers" link. So there's no way to read anything that's not visible on the main pages. [more inside]

WTF? How come you quit opening all MeFi links in a new page? And what are those goddam photos on the right side all about? Jeezus! I just figure out these damn digital parking meters and somebody comes up with something new.

Is the header on the blue looking strange to anyone else? On mine, the "New Post," "My Profile," "Preferences," "Recent Activity" and "Favorites" links are all smooshed together underneath the search box (not the tabbed links, just the text links). I'm viewing the site in IE, WinXP, and I just noticed the smooshed links within the last hour.

If we click on the music
tag, and scroll down to see the Users who often use this tag
, we find that CKmtl
has used the tag in 65 posts, and nkknkk
has used the tag a staggering 164 times! But in fact, it's not true
. What's up? [more inside]

I'm using Opera (9.23, Windows NT 5.1; U; sv)
and all I see at the Metafilter frontpage is nothing at all
(image). Mefi works fine in IE. Whatever has caused this, it must have happened during the past 12 hours.

I was digging through my "Activity" and discovered that, in Safari, clicking on "Older" or "Newer" opened the next page in a new window. Clicking "Older" or "Newer" in that
window opens yet another new window. And so on...
Weirdly, clicking on "Older" or "Newer" in Firefox opens the pages in new tabs. Repeatedly.

There's something odd about the MetaFilter home page. A huge blank space next to the sidebar, between the date and the first post.
