Not My Tube

Youtube is Google and coercive. I just tried to simply 'Like' that husky/head-scratch video, and was told I had to log-in. I loged-out permanently several months ago when I couldn't comment without logging in. Deleted all my content, too. [more inside]

Easily Googled AskMefi Questions

What are your thoughts on AskMefi questions that can be easily Googled and/or are based on erroneous information? (I'm thinking specifically of this question, which contains both factually incorrect details and could easily be answered with Google. There isn't a request for advice, experiential information, anecdata, or other relevant info that a search engine couldn't provide. What does everyone think? Is this a normal/appropriate use of AskMefi?

Google Seceder

PSA: Google Reader shuts down in two weeks. Several alternatives capable of importing your subscription lists and starred items (exportable via Google Takeout) have popped up since the closure announcement, and that's OK. But there's one highly valuable aspect of Reader nobody can replicate and that will soon be lost forever: Reader's vast archive of cached feed data. Here's how to save it all. [more inside]

No Avoiding Google

I was initially trying to read the metafilter post There's No Avoiding Google+ and I kept getting a server error: Your Browser: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.31 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/26.0.1410.64 Safari/537.31 [more inside]

Look, you're really cute, but I can't understand what you're saying...

"Looks like you're searching for an exact phrase. The local search doesn't do that so well. Be sure to try your search for "_____" at Google if you don't find what you're looking for here." Perhaps it's just my colorblind eyes, but I can't see anything other than the "deep space nine" link in the notice above my search results. Is there any chance the Big Dark Bar of Highlighting could be changed to a different color so the text stands out more effectively? Thank you!

Errors loading www.metafilter.com in the latest Google Chrome on OS X?

This is pretty strange and we've gotten 3-4 reports of members not being able to load anything on www.metafilter.com (ask, metatalk, everything else works) in just Google Chrome's latest version (Firefox/Safari work fine), on OSX. Anyone have any ideas what could be going on? [more inside]

AskMe Dis-ad-biguation

Google ads on AskMe pages makes them very confusing to read (for non-members who see them). Is it possible to visually separate them a bit more from the content? Or move the ads below the "More Inside" content?

Sharing mefi with Google+

Mefi links look weird on Google+ and not like any other link I post there. Mefi example, AskMe example. Is there a way to provide a more descriptive description, or delete it altogether? Also, will there eventually be a widget (?) like there is with Twitter and Facebook?

Plus, Minus or meh.

So most mefite google+ users probably have mainly mefites in their circle(s). As the sign ups are open again is this now significantly changing or are we just one small circle among many others.

MetaFilter - making the best of the web by nature of being on MetaFilter?

Has anyone noticed just how shit-high MetaFilter seems to be on Google's radar? On more than one occasion I've noticed seemingly innocuous phrases in a MeFi comment or thread end up as #1 on Google, even after their first index of the post. For example, I will stunt post two keywords inside the bump. [more inside]

Shield askmes from google searches?

This is probably a stupid question but is there a way to shield anonymous AskMe questions from google searches? It's a medical question about a very sensitive family matter and I'd hate to have any family member EVER stumble upon all the background details of my inquiry.

About 2 hours.

I've gotten to the age that I've lost my Google-fu. In some M. Night Shyamalan thread, there was a link to a comic that showed a progression from "who?" to "this guy is great" to "this guy sucks". Where.

Queries from the hive mind

I was experimenting with Google's search suggestions feature when I noticed that it gave some interesting results for "metafilter + [letter]". Since it returns the most popular search terms starting with that phrase, what you get for each letter is an A-Z listing of the most sought-after topics related to Metafilter. So without further ado, I give you... Metafilter A to Z. [more inside]

Play me off

Did I hallucinate a Metafilter comment? I remember reading the line "Play him hither, Lute Cat" on Metafilter recently and though it was so hilarious I needed to illustrate it. I wanted to give credit to the original commenter, but I can't for the life of me find the comment. All my styles of google-fu have failed me. Did this comment actually exist?

Chrome Bug Returns

Google has once again updated its Chrome browser, and as I seem to remember happening before, the little buttons have disappeared from Metafilter's edit window, that allow you to easily create bold, italic text or a link.
