Can I post something I tested to Projects?

A friend developed a new Firefox extension. While I didn't write any code for it, I was one of the testers during development and like to think that my input has helped the product. Is this okay to post to Projects?

It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his job depends on not understanding it.

Account Closing Protocol

What would be the reason someone would want to close their account? If someone didn't want to "belong" to this "community", wouldn't someone just quit posting to the site, and reading it? And what of the posts someone has previously posted? Would a request to delete all of someone's own posts be complied with? [more inside]

How to recall conversations with other users

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.

Answers, not opinions.

I don't understand why some of the answers to this question aren't being deleted. They are expressing their opinions about whether or not it's appropriate to give children psychiatric drugs, or what drugs have worked for children they knew, and that wasn't what was asked.

Full disclosure

A few weeks ago, there was a post about two Muslims about to be deported from Britain. Today in AskMe, the poster reveals that one of the potential deportees is a friend of his. Shouldn't this have been disclosed at the time? Is it okay to make posts about your friends?

Is an Infoviz of MetaFilter copying, stealing, or remixing?

I wanted to take one of AskMeFi's most awesome threads (the one about life-altering experiences) and turn it into an art project. This project is already done, except that nobody knows about it. Here is the link. I am using copies of almost every single post in that thread. This is potentially problematic. I'm asking the MetaFilter Community here, what do you think? [more inside]

Embrace this new feature, and take it to where it needs to go, where the world clamors for it to go -- OPTIONAL HYPOTHETICAL FILTER

Matthew: For a long time, I have been sad at the loss of HypotheticalFilter. When AskMe was young, such questions would arise. But those days are gone now, as the site matured. It's simply not done, you'd say. It floods the page with nonsense. It makes the real questions get lost. Still, I thought, I want to know how to dispose of a body, or how long we'd survive without the sun. Who would win in a fight? A squirrel, or a squirrel's weight in ants? [more inside]

Self-Link for supporting documents?

If I can't find a translation of something I want to post, can I link to the translations on my blog? I'm preparing what will hopefully be a badass FPP on French pop, rap, insult songs and surreal music videos. BUT, most of these songs don't have translations to English and those that do are horrible. So, what if I posted my own translations on my blog and linked to them? [more inside]

Privacy or Criminal Activities?

It seems like there have been several questions lately about how to do things that make it easy to do illegal things or hide one's identity generally in a way that does not seem to have a legitimate purpose, or at the very least seems to only have a vague "I want to avoid harassment" or "I want to protect my privacy" purpose. What gives? [more inside]

Fundamentalist Metafilterism? A few days ago, I had a post deleted. I'm actually not complaining about that (hey! don't jump on me! I'm not! read this before yelling at me!), but that, combined with the belovedness of this post, made a question form in my head. [more inside]

Rocking Homelessness?

I'm uncomfortable that this "How Can I Be Homeless?" question was approved. Seems to me this person should not be helped to pursue a course of action that is not only dangerous but which will almost certainly involve his making use of resources intended to help people who truly have nowhere to turn.

This is not the answer you are looking for.

Is using the "best answer" function to clarify the original question or to offset the OP's own comments from the pack really the best use of that feature?

Rethinking comment deletion

I'm seeing a lot of very eloquent responses to AskMe questions getting deleted. Some of them are very long, and while they could be thought of as containing some offending material, the whole comments are being deleted. I want to propose and discuss just removing the offensive parts -- editing out sentences or paragraphs, and not entire comments, so that the "good stuff" can remain. [more inside]

Followup FPPs?

A couple of times this week I've run across links that had significant new information on stories that made the Blue recently enough to still be active. By themselves they don't feel meaty enough to merit a new FPP, but if I just tack them at the end of the old FPP it feels like wasted effort that nobody's likely to see. [more inside]

Belittling me only dwarfs my concerns.
