The longest boat

Shed a tear for the passing of the LongBoing, this day at 9:58am. We got 2516 oars in the water before setting the whole thing aflame, standing on the strand to watch it drift beyond the horizon. It's where we were all Vikings.

What was the longest thread about, anyway?

Seeing this recent MeTa thread at 378 comments made me wonder what the longest pan-MetaFilter thread was. I came up with this from August 24, 2001 at a whopping 1729 comments (apparently some kind of record), but they're context-less (for me, at least) because the link to the "metafilter parody" that the post refers to is gone. Can anyone slake my thirst for MetaFilter history and supply the parody that inspired such prolific commenting?

The cutoff for comments to a MeFi thread is one calendar month?

Now we know for sure, as the legendary/infamous Blogstop/Acronyms thread goes into "overtime": The cutoff for comments to a MeFi thread is one calendar month, not thirty days. (I'm surprised nobody noticed AND complained last February...)
I'm sorry, but I have loved this thread, textual chain-jerkoff it may have been, and await the dropping of the MetaFilter equivalent of the Times Square New Year's Ball on our collective heads in less than eight hours as I stand like a cryogenically-preserved Dick Clark preparing to be resuscitated just in time to say: "Five...Four..."
So, as long as I've committed myself to a verbal thrashing from the Anti-Acronymatics among you, I must still ask the stupid question: "Why Can't MetaFilter Do Something Like This More Often?"

I love the thread-ends

When a MeTa thread has played its course, chattiness and jokes sometimes rush in. Although I realize it's a minority sport, I just love thread-ends. There's something ecological about using left-overs for imaginative and friendly banter. Is my excuse, anyway...

Like soon-to-be-deleted threads on MetaFilter, they serve a useful pressure-valve purpose: they redirect playfulness away from serious discussions and probably inhibit initiating purposefully chatty posts. At least for me. Is this acceptable, now that MetaTalk has become specifically Meta again? Or, at least, can it be lived with? I hope so.
