Metafilter: Chaotic shitstorm mindfuck September 17, 2008 11:17 AM   Subscribe

Interesting to see delicious' users comments on MetaFilter. We're a new blog (as of 3 days ago)! A Home Improvement Blog! A POPULAR WEBSITE WHERE PEOPLE TALK ABOUT D@MN NEAR EVERYTHING! Also, "faux-intellectual liberal hipster I-listen-to-OK-Go-with-my-$180-"thrift-store"-jacket-on stuck-ups. Basically fark, but populated with folk who don't have as much of a sense of humor, but who are smarter or better educated."

Some other non-sequiturs:

"not for the faint of heart"
AskMetafilter was the model for Yahoo! Answ[ers]
News, history, art, and unaviodable snobbery of MeFites.
greatest waste of time ever

An inimitable community-driven blog/filter/discussitorium. Like Slashdot without the stupid, or Fark without the stupid. Generally not too stupid, is what I'm trying to get at. [by cortex]

delicious annotations are weird, no doubt about it. Also, I feel kind of guilty not dotting it out into del.icio.us anymore, but it sure is easier to type.

We're a new blog (as of 3 days ago)!

New to the deliciouser's blogroll, probably. These aren't necessarily descriptions so much as notes for a lot of people.

This Fark, it's funnier? maybe I should check it out.

This trend that we've been seeing of being noticed by various groups of people is interesting. Metafilter used to be such a wallflower; he was into all those books, and he seemed very intelligent, but his voice always cracked before it finally deepened, and he always acted awkward in social settings.

I'm personally looking forward to the time when Metafilter finally starts getting noticed by girls.

Fark is funnier, but in a depressing kind of way.

Metafilter: some of the finest internub goons i've ever seen. They're quirky, they're burly, they're analytical as all get out. Sometimes when the rest of the internet is ugly, MeFi is the only beauty to be found

The interesting thing with delicious is that you're not commenting in some public area or such. You're commenting on your list of bookmarks, leaving yourself notes, and then they show up aggregated in some public area.

True story: a friend of mine (who is a girl) and I (who am also a girl) were walking down the street shooting the shit, and she said something about Asking Metafilter, and I was all "omg you read Metafilter?" and she was like "totally!" and then we had a pillow fight and made out.

Okay, the pillow fight and making out part didn't actually happen, but the rest is true.

Trust? Yeah, sure kid. Trust and a buck fifty will get you on the crosstown bus. Anyway, you think you're trusted around here? Heh heh, well, I suppose you could call it that... trusted to slip up, sooner or later. That's what we're waiting for. For you to make that lame ass post to the blue, or to make that MeTa callout that goes horribly wrong, that's gonna get you crucified. That gets you torn apart and eaten for breakfast. Yeah... trust.

See ya 'round, kid.

I remember reading metafilter (didn't have an account then) back in that weird week when the camgirls showed up, and one of them classified metafilter as an E/N site -- Everything/Nothing. Years later, as I think about it, I can't help but feel she really had our number.

(Did any camgirls stick around, or did they all leave en masse in the same way they showed up?)

rmd1023: *coughboyzonecough* I SEE WHAT YOU DID THERE.

Well, maybe you can tell me, then.

Full disclosure: 'Metafilter has no girls, ha ha, right?' would be a stupid joke, if one were to make it, not least because there's no truth to it. Hell, I probably know more girls on Metafilter than I know guys, at least whose posts and whose usernames I recognize. Come to think of it, that's pretty exceptional when you consider most of the dumb web forums out there.

I just find adolescent males funny. And the idea that we're all very interested in how everybody else perceives us reminds me of how I felt when I was a teenaged boy. That's all.

Sometimes I think maybe I need to just try not making jokes for a while. I'd rather do that than be part of the problem. Ah well.

Well, maybe you can tell me, then.

... er, i thought you were making a joke making fun of "metafilter has no girls" idea, not endorsing it. 'cuz, there's lots of girls who notice mefi. heck, i hear they let one be a moderator and everything, although i also hear she's some old 40-something librarian chick.
