Text not "MeFi" enough?!

Regarding this post, which was deleted. "This is the sort of thing you need to write a more MeFi-like post for." Well, considering that the text of the headline I used is very similar -- if anything, less graphic -- than the headline of the article I linked to, with much of the text is taken verbatim from the memo, with additional information accurately presented, can I get a clarification on how this isn't written in a Me-fi enough way, please?!

The link is what you're supposed to talk about

Would everyone please cut it out? Pretty please?!

Don't copy the article, link to it

When y2karl quotes 4000 words of an article, it's really annoying. Just link to it. Thanks.

The suspense is killing me [more inside]

Could we maybe dispense with the cliffhangers in Ask.MetaFilter?

Formatting etiquette

Enough with the big / strong / italics.

Not GrammarFilter

Could we possibly make an effort to try to appreciate the content of a given site, rather than have every other link derailed by some niggling critcism of the webmaster's use of fonts/flash/javascript/punctuation?

Bold Tag Etiquette

Overusing the bold tag. As the number of front page posts have grown, some posters have felt the need to yell to be heard. I think this is a troubling trend, and I'd like it to stop. What is the community consensus?

Good descriptions wanted on front page

is there any good way to encourage people to post real descriptions (of any kind!!!) to front page posts? please? it's tiring wanting to click a link without having any idea what the post is actually about. and the comments on that thread (at least the first few, when i saw it) don't exactly help.

How should I refer to another site when I quote them here?

i have a question for you guys. what is adequate reference info in quoting from another website? is just a link back enough? would it matter if the page is primarily composed of quotes versus sparing use?
