Patience is a virtue. If the link is really great, it will find its way here. If you wish to obtain the credit for the link, consider your motivations. Are they for the greater glory of MetaFilter or the great glory of yourself?

Make a few comments and earn the privilege of posting. You've been here long enough to know that's how it works.

Bah! Screw glory. Post it regardless...stick it to the man!

Wait. If it's that cool, it'll still be cool when you can post. If someone else posts it first, input your unique perspective on the topic without yelling out that you had it first -- because it's about the links, not the glory. Glory kills.

I hope the link is to those Get Your War On comics!
