- 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 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]

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.

I'm trying to post in this thread
... I can preview, but when I try to post I just get "Your comment appears to be blank, go back and try again."... and I'm pretty sure my comment is not blank...

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.

Will all those who think the YFZ Ranch FPP
is a "yawn" or "not the best of the web" please complain about it in this thread rather than in the blue. Thank you.

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.
Maybe, but maybe you could be a little nicer Hildegarde

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?

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.
