I'm fairly certain that Matt has to approve posts in the Projects section, so I'm unsure of how this post
made the cut. The user
has only one other contribution
from earlier today and it's related to the site he's pushing.

I was wondering if the powers that be had given any thought recently to perhaps raising the admission price for Projects. (You know, now that Metafilter rules Google and all...) [more inside]

With less than 2 months under it's belt... Grantland.com has been featured on the blue 14 times... is this product placement? Is this unprecedented? Do users of Grantland not get the concept of RSS feeds? [more inside]

I just got an email using my metafilter user name that has been reproduced inside. Metafilter is the only site where I use this monkier, and I"m wondering exactly what the hell it is, and if anyone else has gotten it. It is called the "Living Life to the Full User Survey." [more inside]

I have sometimes felt I haven't gotten my 'due' for being one of the MetaFilter Early Adopters (user #206). But not today. [more inside]

- using your MeFi account to harvest email addresses of people who you disagree with, so you can sign them up to mailing lists? That's gotta be out of order, right? [more inside]

is distinctly spammy. The pleasure of answering questions and helping people in AskMeFi is the reward, not offers of free stuff.

I don't know what the policy is on this but I just got this spam via MeFi email from someone I don't know or care to know:

Can we please have an automatic deletion and/or penalty box for posts that get flagged for breaking guidelines by many users at times when no mod is online? [more inside]

So Wendell apparently harvested a bunch of Mefite email addresses and sent a pointless message to all of them, and a herd of the recipients went off on a "reply all" binge with equally pointless replies. Now I have a mailbox full of crap. This is without a doubt the lamest, most wrong-headed bullshit move I have experienced here. Thanks for nothing, jerx.

might be a self-link with one level of indirection. It's certainly just marketing, regardless.

Can we keep the rule that n00bs can't post their first FPP
on the same day they sign up? Especially when they are just trying to drive traffic to an escorts website?

I know this has been brought up before, but I believe that it's frustrating enough to deserve being brought up again. Why is the wiki so spam-ridden?
Every time I go to look at it, at least 75% of the things I click on are spam or "DeletedPage: This page was WikiSpam. "
Seriously, If nobody's going to put in the effort to keep the wiki spam-free, why even bother to have it, especially now that we have a FAQ?

It seems that the Metafilter Wiki @ http://www.mssv.net/wiki.cgi was taken over by Xanax online, which promptly trashed the whole place, the shitheads

In this AskMe
, I am in agreement with the post that follows mine, as well as of course my own, though I didn't word it as bluntly as Rhomboid did, as I was sort of "typing as thinking". That said, the first response
seems vaguely spammy. Full disclosure: I provide web hosting myself, and I still think the response is borderline inappropriate.

They want someone with an American bank account.
So how does this scam work?

Just a followup to the Optical4Less spam
and the robots exclusion suggestion
for deleted threads: deleted AskMefi threads still do not have the exclusion meta tag, so that Mefi spam there can still be indexed by search engines. Anyone else spotted any other loopholes spammers might have slipped through?

Just curious. I got the following in my in-box, anyone else getting this spam which appears to be harvested from mefi profile pages?
...I saw that you had art related sites, but we know that this doesn't have much to do with poker. As such, we would like to work with you for text space on your Mefi profile. We see ourselves liking Mefi traffic and think you make good posts that can attract people to your profile.
Fools!!! They must not have read my FPPs, good posts indeed, pffft.
