Can we just call a "do-over"or something today?

Is it me, or is there an unusual number of crappy posts on the front page today? A 3 month old link about AI? The Ketchup piece, which has sparked a conversation concerning whether or not it sucks. A TV listing? Michael Jordan's ramifacations on world economy...about 6 posts after another, similar, Michael Jordan thread.
I've never been a MeFi-aint-what-it-used-to-be sorta guy, but this just seems nuts. Am I just noticing this for the first time, or is today special?

It's not just you. One look at some of the front page posts and some of their comments and I had the sinking feeling this may be the last day, prophesied by some.

Don't forget the double post of the bunny pictures. Might as well cover everything..

Today is going to be a looong-ass day.

I feel as if we just trashed the place today and we better clean it up before Matt gets home, or we're gonna be in trouble.

Yeah, and I had a cool post ready to go today, that didn't have to do with WTC or Falwell or anything. I'll wait until tomorrow, I think...

Although, from a MeTa perspective, today should provide good argument fodder.

the sad thing is it just kept getting worse.

The metaheard needs to be thinned!

not very many actual posters on the front page today either. two posts in three hours.

Hey, maybe it's just an extra-good pr0n day out on the net, and everyone's off and right-clicking...? :)

Let's have a daily MeFi weather report.

rodii: i typically judge the MeFi climate by what's being posted on MeTa. And it is dark and stormy right now.
