Too much tragedy for one thread

I respectfully suggest that we move the gun control discussion here. If for no other reason than to limit the in-thread argument on whether or not we should be commenting on gun control in-thread.

Univac: a callout

univac doesn't like SEIU president Andy Stern. Fine. But he's pedaling too close to the turfgrass line for my tastes, and the latest article is pretty shaky.

Hi, I'm From MetaFilter, And I'm Here To Help

I find myself fascinated by unhindered's "contributions". Which is to say that I find them annoying as hell, pseudoscientific at best, and skirting the boundaries of acceptable behavior on MeFi.

double?

Today's edition of what irks me: Hijacking threads with unsupported claims of doubleness. Either put up or shut up--don't shit on good threads just because you read boing boing and have a bad memory.

Consumerist, just as annoying as those they fight?

Consumerist recommends spamming Metafilter (among others) with your corporate complaint as a means to get attention (or retribution) from the corporate world. Watch the $5 roll in. . . .

Green vs. Blue

Just a casual observation, but it looks like AskMe's post count will reach parity with MeFi's somewhere in the next 24-48 hours. By the end of the week there will be more threads created on the green than created in the blue.

Good charity keeps plugging along

Remember Modest Needs? They turned five years old this week and hit one million dollars in funds dispersed since they started. In the anniversary post, the founder mentions they got their whole start thanks to that post on mefi.

Tagging Metafilter

Is there any way of having an overlapping system of tags to categorize these MetaTalk posts? So for 'feature requests' that could be a sub-tag of either the 'Metafilter', 'Ask Metafilter' or 'Metatalk' tags. So when I want to see what is being discussed about improving Ask Metafilter I start by selecting that tag and then start clicking the sub tags to get more specific. Finally, the reason I am asking is because I am concerned about the flooding of questions on AskMe and the thing I would do is have a separate section for technology questions as those questions seem to be at least 50% of all questions asked. Cheers.

A Mediaeval Self-Link.

Posted 1 hour ago by stbalbach. As interesting as I might find the contents, technically this is a self-link. The main link is to something he himself uploaded to another site.

Unnecessary-ness

What happened to the thread of photos off the p2p networks? Did that link get removed for any particular reason? Was it to make room for the Zelda/Golden Ratio thread? Hmm. I am kind of disappointed.

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?

Pork stamp - NOT

Mea Culpa. Remember my sweet-and-sour pork stamp post? Well, as it turns out, it's not true. Oh, there is a stamp (cute design), and it is popular, but it's not scratch-and-sniff, or tasty (see comment #7). Sorry gang. P. S. Not a "bug", but that's the closest Category that came to mind... P. P. S. I had a friend of mine ask her relatives to send her a sheet/book of these stamps. I just have to know for myself.

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?

Doubleplusgood doubleposting

Nevercalm deserves credit for anti-eponysterically advocating that his post, doubled five minutes later, be the one deleted. Mattamyn deserves credit, as usual, for not being blindly policy-bound.

What was that movie post?

I'm trying to find a post on the blue about a low-budget indie movie about the West Coast of the US after some sort of apocalypse. Various tag searches have turned up nada, I think it was last summer. It had quite a spooky documentary style trailer.

Cheating woman thrashed on radio prank show

I very much want to post the collection of comic valentines found here to the blue, but I'm worried the site navigation is so convoluted that the thread will be nothing but complaints about it. Can this post be saved?

What's the best way to search for a post on MetaFilter?

Howdy. I'm searching for a post that I think was made here awhile back of people carrying ridiculous amounts of stuff while riding a bike. I can't find it [maybe it wasn't here]. Anyway, in the course of searching for it I also took a gander through the FAQ in the hopes that I could find information on the best way to search MeFi... [mi]

I know that FPPs should have, like, links and all, but it doesn't seem so terribly strange that a bunch of 'em would be all inside, at least not ban-worthy strange.

Please don't pretend not to know what I'm talking about.

Women aren't funny. Please don't pretend not to know what I'm talking about.

I don't know - I think if you filled in an ethnic group and some other behavioral stereotype, with a link to a simularly bigoted rant that contains no scientific information, this post would be seen as explicitly and obviously offensive.

I'm not sure what the best action is here - it's not so overtly offensive that I necissarily think it should be removed. Reading back on previous Meta discussions it seems that this type of post is generally left standing, and looking at the faq, I see that bigoted language is not necissarily a qualification for deleting, but posts that are just saying "this group of people is inherently bad at x compared to that group of people, don't pretend you don't agree with me, and here's a link to some wingnut saying that too" seem to serve no purpose but causing people to freak out. Thoughts?

More Inside

A wee pony for the holidays: How about a "More Inside" option for the Blue, so that interesting posts like this one are not consistently derailed by people pissing and moaning about "too many paragraphs on the front page" or some other such useless pedantry.
