Post Title

Would it be a huge inconvenience to actually have Post Titles heading posts on the blue? Yea, I understand the face of the blue is tried and true, however, some, if not all, posts need "Headlines". Why even have them if they only show up AFTER you check into the post/thread? (not complaining, I love Mefi!)

How do you say thank you in Telugu?

I just wanted to point out the cydonian's fantastic observations in this post that he made yesterday, and thank him publicly for his efforts. thank you!

Give it up.

I am so goddamn tired of being rickrolled in the comments. I think somebody spilled some 4chan on my metafilter.

Over the Line

This deletion of a post on Christians United for Israel was way over the line. We leave in a Lindsay Lohan linkfest, but we take down a newsworthy post about how people who happily look forward to Armageddon are influencing our country's foreign policy. Max Blumenthal may be an arrogant documentary film-maker, but the footage is still important.

Close your eyes and visualize...

Community-based interactive pony request: With all our new doodads, favorites, flags, and feeds Metafilter is crying out for some cool ways of visualizing our community and content, ala dig labs. The only thing I have seen along these lines is this contact map made with ManyEyes. Some potential ideas for neat visualizations inside, but does anyone have the skills/interest to put something snazzy together?

IraqFilter Really Sucks.

IraqFilter Is Awful. Is there some wide swath of MeFi users who derive a lot of enjoyment or benefit out of posts like this, which seem to surface whenever somebody pens an op-ed that criticizes the Iraq war (i.e., fairly frequently)? Here's the pattern: (1) op-ed is published; (2) op-ed is copied to MeFi; (3) posters say how bad President Bush is; (4) a poster or two will defend the administration; and (4) posters will attack the defenders until they no longer respond. Am I the only one who thinks that is tedious?

Pitchforks?

This post links prominently to this URL, (which redirects to this Blogspot site). A rudimentary glance at the source code reveals a rather obvious favicon icon almost certainly belonging to this first-time poster.

Pass the bacon salt, please.

Update: Bejing's counterfeit pork dumplings [referenced in a prior food thread] have been discredited as byproducts of the monkeyfishing industry.

You sir, are a jerk.

Looking for a quote from Metafilter comments from less than a month ago. About calling a lawyer a jerk. I paraphrase badly: "If you think the defense is wrong then attack the defense. If you think the facts are wrong then argue the facts. If you've got nothing then call the other lawyer a jerk."

Oops, I nuked you again

I remember reading a few years back on the blue a link about incidents of accidental criticality, or some similar title. The page was a list of all (unclassified?) incidents in US laboratory history where a critical mass of fissionable material was brought together in a lab and what happened. My Google-fu is failing me, in part I think because this predates titles and tags...

Please Sidebar Asparagirl's post

Any chance that the mods could sidebar this post by Asparagirl? It was a fantastic post, with great clarity, structure, and purpose, as well as being critically important to most Americans.

Who made the Metafilter pins?

A coupla years ago, a very nice Mefi user, whose user name began with A, (I think) made Metafilter pins and he sent me some. I can't for the life of me remember his name. Does anyone remember who made the neat-o Metafilter pins?

who was that guy, the one with the plane...?

UpdateFilter: while I was waiting in line for an iPhone with my friend yesterday (for him not for me) I was catching up on a little work. I was showing my friend the MeFi admin interface and someone looked over my shoulder and said "is that MetaFilter?" I said yes, was he a member? He said no but a video that he had made got linked on MeFi last February and had catapulted him to mini-stardom for a few weeks. He gave me some backstory on the movie....

Where's that great parody of askme-as-life-helper?

A while back someone posted to meta a great little parody of the sort of sequence of questions we're all familiar with where someone uses askme to help them through absolutely every stage of their life. Where is it? I can't seem to find.

No

No. Can we have some standards and not participate in this crap? I'd also like to ask for a pre-emptive strike on any NewsFilter post about the latest missing and found dead rich white girl they're talking about now.

A [more inside] feature for the blue?

Is it feasible to have a proper [more inside] feature for the blue? It would be nice if there was a trivial way for the gods to save space without having to delete otherwise worthy threads such as this.

My Friend's Dull Blog

This is a one-link post to a photo-blog consisting of a painful flash interface, 32 (uninteresting) pictures of a guy's trip to japan and some exceedingly lame attempts at humorous commentary. Surprise! It's the poster's friend's blog! What's the policy on almost-self-links?

Wasn't there a post about dry ice and ethenol equating to instantaneous drunkeness sometime in the last six months?

I recently got drunk with: a former professor and a chemistry major and claimed that: dry ice + ethanol === near instantaneous intoxication. Now that I'm mostly sober my Google fu fails to reveal evidence (in youtube + MeFi post form) to substantiate my claim. I'm 98.23% certain that I saw/learned this factoid on MeFi. Could some kind soul please help me? Confirm, deny, deride -- at the very least inform -- me. Just point, if so kind you would be, in the direction of the link - y. :-) Thanks.

Don't Get the Delete High

Getting the dog high? Why wasn't the whole thing deleted? Letting any comments ride on that one is a slippery slope, I should think. Especially ones condoning it or speaking of giving a dog something toxic.

calloutfilter.

I don't think this takedown was appropriate. Just because the story was "resolved" with flickr doesn't mean that there's nothing to talk about, or that it isn't interesting.

Religious / Political Threads Largely Repetitive

MetaFilter discussions about religion and politics tend to have comments which are basically the same as other MetaFilter discussions about religion and politics.

suicide video link

This comment links to a video of a real life suicide without warning (other than "I'm a terrible person"). Normally I'd flag this and move on, but this is possibly the worst thing I've ever seen on metafilter and I'd like to see it deleted as quickly as possible.

best first post ever?

I thought the buster keaton post was incredible, one of my favorites to read (and watch) in a long time, and even more so when i read it was a first post. Anyways I just want to recognize churl for putting so much effort into making such a great first post .. links to criticism, sources,background info and of course videos.. its awesome. Just a really auspicious begginning, i hope he does more like this

Self-linkage

Reposting on MeFi after a long period of lurkage. I need some advice about self-linking. While I know the rule is "don't!", I've worked with a video collective that would be relevant in light of recent posts about Night Flight. I don't run the site, but I feel that I should mention that I've worked with them in the past. Can I post this website, and should I mention my involvement after a [more inside] jump?

“Confusion is an often too subtle sign of paranoia.”

Upon reading some responses in the "Shooty" post, I have a basic question that has started to bother me and I hope it is appropriate to post here. Why, when there is debate sparked over anything in general, does it seem to always point to Republican/Democrat, Race or Income? More inside:

Where is that post about the fake Aussie pop star?

I'll looking for a post from maybe a year or so back. It was about an Australian pop star who's father basically paid for his sons' stardom. It culminated is a concert where the son was booed off the stage and exposed as a fake. Does anyone remember this post?

Why are links removed?

Could someone direct me to specific policies that state why posts are removed? I had one removed today because someone chose to use inappropriate language in a comment. The language use was apparently blamed on the article I posted. That is very strange. I don't know where the policy is that states what can and can't be posted.
