Some AskMetafilter standards? Debated posting this because conformity is like, so something the MAN wants you to do. But when I was looking through the AskMetafilter archives I noticed a few things, like "more inside" and [filter][/filter] stuff that breaks the formatting.
Are links like this akin to saying "Harper's, page 27"? I did some metatalk searching and all I could find was a post discussing copy-and-pasting of whole pay site articles, it seems like this would have been discussed before, but I guess not.
The Kafster's comment got me thinking. Anyone want to join me in refraining from posting anything "hot button" or anything so far left or right that all it will get is a bunch of flames? Come with me and take on the Mefi burden.
With the rash of self-links I thought of a quandary. What if someone has a web site that they own, but other people write articles (or take photos, or whatever) for it. The person then links to an article that he didn't write, but is hosted on his web site. Would it be a legitimate link? I would never do this, but I would hesitate to say "that's wrong".
