1. How about a standard notice when a comment is deleted from a thread? Replacing each deleted comment with "[comment deleted]" might make threads like this more understandable.
2) MeTa doesn't notice that I've set MeFi to open external links in a new window. External links don't always open from comment preview pages, either, which causes a tiny moment of angst when I double-check links before posting. Am I missing something?

Oops, I meant "External links don't always open in a new window from comment preview pages, either

I'm with you on both, media report. In MeTa I always have to remember to right click and "open in a new window". Not a huge pain in the ass, but enough to irritate me if I'm already in a bad mood.

[SHIFT] plus click does the same thing in IE (left shift key only for some reason). Thought I'd mention it.

Right shift works fine for me...

Yeah, both work for me, too. But I think the moment of fear comes from all those posts I've lost accidentally at other sites. I usually copy the text of anything I'm about to post before actually doing it, but it doesn't always happen and I sometimes forget to right-click. If links from the comment preview page opened in a new window, too, I wouldn't have to worry. And yeah, preferring to keep a "base window" handy probably has something to do with unresolved childhood weaning issues.
