I haven't noticed things disappearing, but I do notice that it can take a little time for a favorited item to appear in the favorited items page.

I'm not sure it was ever really unborked. I've continued to have comments favorited that never show up on my saved favorites page. I've decided that the obvious solution is to stop making comments that people will want to favorite. So let me just add here that I wish Bush had sent 40,000 new troops to Iraq. American force will make all the difference in the fight beween Sunnis and Shiites.

Blame Ajax!

Ajax? Ajax, Ajax. Ajax!

I think someone favorited a message I wrote that ultimately got deleted on AskMe. I assumed that was why the numbers were off when I looked.

Hmm, I favourited one of grouse's comments, which then got deleted — but the comment remains in my favourites.

More importantly, I continue to make comments that have surely been favorited, and they aren't listed as favorites on either the favorites page or under the comments themselves; if one weren't the sporting type, he might assume these comments hadn't been favorited at all, but I, frankly, refuse to acknowledge this possibility. It's far more likely that the entire system has run amok and the hundreds and hundreds of favorites directed my way have been lost in Metafilter's alligator-infested sewers.

Of course you're right, TGC. I favorite each and every one of your comments several times. I also email them all to everyone I know - even those ingrates who now filter my messages as 'junk'. Soon, my new TGC Today blog will be up and running, so the entire world can benefit from your wisdom.

If I may include a pony in that matter of borking: can we see what "this" is? Like, on this page, instead of just saying "1 user marked this as a favorite:", it would have the actual comment/post above it so that it would make sense when seen out of context.

So what you're saying is I'm almost read to become the Brother Justin Crowe of Metafilter? This is a very good day indeed.

Have you telekinetically snapped a man's neck yet?

I wish I could figure out a way to favorite Clancy Brown.

Forget that bug. I just sighted a quonsar message that's not a cryptic one-liner. Must be a bug.

There's all kinds of stuff that doesn't show up in my favorited lists, almost too much to list.

It's early yet, I just want to have dinner and a couple beers. Check back with me about 9, I'm sure to have telekinetically snapped a man's neck by then.

You prefer Werder Bremen, I take it.

I haven't even managed a small rodent. Yet.

Ooh, minor setback on the TGC Today blog. It seems my ISP is getting complaints from those ingrates, and they're threatening to terminate my service if I keep emailing TGC's comments to everyone. I can't stop, of course - that would be wrong. Perhaps if I send my ISP a nice gift, they'll relent. I think they'd appreciate a foreskin gift basket.

The nice thing about the foreskin gift basket is that if you rub it a little it turns into a canoe.

I also randomly get posts added to my favorites. Things that I never marked (or even read) will appear as favorited by me. It's a little disconcerting.

If that's true, I guess that would be the problem.
