With all the AskMe talk, we hardly talk about the blue. Yesterday was a outstanding day on there and I just want to say thanks to every poster, even those who got deleted.
I just wanted to publicly thank FuzzyVerde
, who actually delivered three tubs of ice cream to my pregnant sister today for her birthday (complete with festive cooler). The idea that a complete stranger halfway around the world would offer to help me out
is just amazing. I love MeFites!
Kudos to kirkaracha
for dodging the urge to be clever and actually making the text of his link to IMDB
the name of the movie. Rather than content free nouns, adverb or adjectives. "Honey, I've got a tool that'll fix anything." -- Actor in this sequel
would have been less useful.
The participants in this thread
(about the board game Arimaa) engaged in a long discussion about matters on which they tended to strongly disagree. Nonetheless, the discussion was almost universally polite and respectful, and took things to a level far beyond the premise of the original post. It's not every day you can watch people turn a chat about a child's game into a debate on the nature of intelligence and consciousness, or discuss such controversial issues without things degenerating into a slagging match. Kudos.
Despite some recent messiness, snarking and call-outs on the green and the grey, I (as a noob) am impressed with the recent examples of true connection and "kinship" as exhibited by the life altering experiences
thread in Ask MetaFilter (and discussed further here
) and the heartfelt advice
given to a frightened 20-year old who is about to enter a treatment center.
In the same spirit of recalling favorite migs moments
, can some of the longer-term folks share memorable moments where MeFi has demonstrated such “poignancy” and support to fellow MeFites?
I love, love, love, love, love this post
With so much trash-talk being thrown around this site recently, I just wanted to point out something good. Thanks, y2karl.
I love love love love the new metatalk post arrangement. Thank you matt!
Can I live here? It's so peaceful and quiet away from the pointless arguing of mf.
"white is the color of paper"
"who says so? youre wrong!"
"shut up, youre stupid, im going to whip you with my penis"
"why don't you two stop fighting"
