"The Web forum MetaFilter, for instance, which is known for a positive commenting flavor, depends on a 24/7 team of moderators. “People come to us all the time and say, ‘Here’s a problem with people behaving badly, we want a tech solution,’ ” says Paul Bausch, a MetaFilter developer. “We tell them that human problems require human judgment.” MetaFilter's own pb quoted in a New York Times Magazine piece on the evolution of online commentary.

What would have been a permissible way to raise this topic?

I attempted a FPP with this post that was pretty swiftly deleted because something had purportedly been "debunked". What would have been a permissible way to make a FPP regarding the current trial of Dr. Kent Gosnell? [more inside]

The Blogfather

On the eve of MetaFilter's twelfth birthday, the Willamette Week sits down with Matt Haughey to talk about his roots at the dawn of the blogging age, the value of lifestyle work vs. captaining industry, and the future of community blogs in an online landscape increasingly dominated by Twitter, Facebook, and mobile browsing.

Is there a MediaFilter somewhere?

Every so often I see questions about how we should treat spoilers for ongoing TV shows like Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, etc. What I don't see is any posts actually dedicated to those things. Where are we discussing current TV that spoilers are an issue?

The forum at the end of the universe

"Far out in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the Starship Titanic website sat a specious message board with posts by the senior crew of the fictional ship. This is not its story." The Economist blog "Babbage" explores (in decidedly Adamsian style) the fascinating story of the Starlight Lines forum and its "accidental" community, as told by Mefi's own Yoz Grahame in this truly epic comment from last December.

Hamburgering RASSMUSSEN opinion poll data

The bias problems with Rassmussen have been discussed and mocked by the lefty blogosphere for years. This year, after an article in Politico, there seems to be a growing consensus among the MSM punditocracy that unless there are polls by other firms that can confirm Rassmussen's data; you shouldn't use them as your primary source for opinion polling.

Another request to find a lost MeFi post

I am trying to find the MeFi post to a YouTube video that features a little girl singing. The video was processed by the video poster by taking several snippets of a little girl talking, squealing, screeching and clapping a pair of flip-flops together. The result was an absolutely endearing "song", with a little synthesizer thrown in. [more inside]

9/11 was an inside job

"Submitting a link is akin to writing a little paper for school."

"I just went to MetaFilter and the top link is "How many goats are you worth?". Is that more intellectual than the entries on Reddit?"

Because having your questions answered by *one* know it all is so pre-AskMe.

Salon's Cary Tennis referred one of his questioning letter writers to AskMe for a discussion on sighing. So how long is until is it until Dear Abby and Ann Landers just start to tell their readers, "Get counselling, and read AskMe, dear."
