Tags, You're It!

One-link, one-or-two-word MeFi posts bugging you? We've had a few lately. Maybe it would help to display the tags on the front page. [more inside]

MeFi ReCurrents

An Immodest Proposal: One of the interesting phenomena I've noticed as other aggregating sites are on their ascendancy (can you Digg it?) is that many links that had been MetaFiltered long ago (in Web time) get a new wave of attention, which flows back around here, and BANG! Double-triple-quadruple post!. And how many times lately have we seen comments like "Didn't see it the first time; glad it was reposted"? Maybe what we need is a separate place for "Re-Current" posts or links, where we can acknowledge that WE got it months/years ago, and re-open comments on it. Obviously, such a sub-Meta would require a lot of moderation/maintenance, and maybe it should be an off-site project. How should it work? Can we/you make it work? Why bother? Any volunteers?

GoreFilter?

Are we gonna keep the "latest attempt to smear Gore" post on the front page just because it gets successfully refuted later in the thread? Or in the interest of being "Fair and Balanced", should Gore Bashing be kept equivalent to Bush Bashing?

Followup: Show your MeFi Designs

I believe the deadline for the MeFi Design Contest has passed. Does anybody who entered have the nerve to show off their actual entries to the MeFi public? I have half a notion to, but I don't want to be the first (or anything before sixth) to expose my web design shortcomings...

Google Ads

Are You MetaPolar?
The Google Ads on the Front Page seem to be dominated by psychiatry sites and prescription drugs. Keyword: bipolar.
Is this a fair assessment of the content or membership here?
Are we all here because we're not all there?

Googlewashing recursively

MetaFilter: Such a powerful force, it has "Googlewashed" the term "Googlewash".
Now, let's try a really challenging meme: OW! (which actually started here to give credit where it's... OW!
