Because for some reason I can't sign into metafilter's main page, I thought I'd give a brief update on the situation in this
thread here. [more inside]
"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?"
"I hate, hate, hate it when they put multiple links in single words."
reddit discovers Metafilter
so, about this post --> http://www.metafilter.com/73909/History-of-the-DC-Universe ... please read all of more inside first before looking at the post. [more inside]
- when Windows people are left out it's justified, when Mac users are left out it's a tragedy that must be addressed. Note: tongue firmly in cheek, I know these are two different users. I'm just feeling snarky.

I haven't done this in a while, but: This

I would like to know what people's thoughts are on the idea of allowing Metafilter posters to make a "second edition" of a post after a certain amount of time has passed (a week?, a year?). [more inside]
You can take your own sanctimonious smugness and shove it deep and far up inside your poophole.
loquacious, maybe you should relax and not be so violent.

How local is too local for the Metafilter front page? [more inside]
Is there any way to identify threads that contain comments by me and another user? I'm picturing a world where I could click on someone else's profile, and there would be a link "conversations you've had with this user." I suspect I am missing something, but I can't find it.
Not sure if (justifiable) politicsfilter objections trump history in the making, but I don't know whether this merits an FPP or not. Hence it seems legit for MetaTalk, even if only to get a moderator to rule on whether we can have what I think will be an FPP comment thread for the ages.
But dammit, Barack Obama, the son of a Kenyan immigrant and a Kansas farm girl, is about to be the nominee of the Democratic party for president of the US of Doggone A
, and it is a moment worthy of of being marked and reflected upon for many in this community, I am sure, regardless of our political commitments.
Religious issues aside, do we really need three separate posts
covering slight variations of the same thing?
What, one ParisParamus wasn't enough for us? How much more do we need to see

Interesting similarity between this Metafilter post

The 'Creepy Dutch TV Host' thread

At some point today, lost in the webs of metafilter, I came across a link to a page where a guy described seeing two men share a crack pipe then have sex with each other. There were photos too. I, ah, need to find it again. It's for a friend, I swear.

Please hope me find a post! It had to do with licensing liquor production on a small scale, home brew beer and micro breweries. I'm particularly interested in the new/ish laws. My search is FAIL. Thank you.
My first ever MeFi post failed miserably. Where'd I go wrong? [more inside]
Will all those who think the YFZ Ranch FPP

You're a junior in a liberal arts program and you think you've got a career?
35 years after having had a vasectomy, you want children? Have you picked up a new trophy wife, or something, HuronBob?
Wow, someone's got his panties in a knot over this. I guess we hit some sort of nerve.

I heard this DJ
singing the praises of MetaFilter on Atlanta radio this afternoon. She was talking up the site in general, and the alphabetical song lyric post
specifically. Who says there's never anything good on the radio?
It's not OK to dismiss

Is there interesting MetaFilter history that newcomers wouldn't know about, but might find interesting? [more inside]
If you feel the need to call the OP a douchebag
, attack his phrasing

please do it in this MeTa instead of shitting in the question.
Can anyone guide me to a post about USian education in which it was described how the POTUS met with business leaders to determine the course of public education in the U.S.? I think they were events that happened during or just after the industrial revolution.
argh I just finished a fascinating, wholly up to date summary of the evidence about subliminal perception and whether it can change people's behavior (as in the controversial Clinton ad) when the THREAD GOT DELETED!!!!
Meh, suffer in your ignorance.
