Today I idly clicked on the 10 years ago today
link on the front page and was revelling in the innocence of the fledgling metafilter from back in the era when a busy day saw a dozen FPPs and a really active thread might get nearly a hundred comments. I was startled to see a thread
with 1729 comments. (By comparison, the initial 'Plane crashed into the World Trade Center' FPP three weeks later did not even break 500.) Alas, the link to the metafilter parody in the FPP is dead. Does anyone have it archived anywhere?

What's the etiquette on posting stuff you've just seen at somewhere like BoingBoing
? So far this morning, there's been 2 posts that appeared on BB in the last week. I saw them when they first came up there, and thought, "hey, this is neat, people on Mefi would like this," but then decided against posting them here. I know that sometimes one can encounter a flurry of "X
filter!!!!" comments by doing something like that.
Should we actively avoid posting things we've seen on other, highly popular link-oriented blogs?
