For clarity - when http://Whedonesque.com was around, it was a collaborative/community weblog and not a message board. Thank you.
I've never been able to think of Metafilter as a 'community', as it's described, because that implies a set of mutual values and commitment to mutual support that don't exist, or necessarily need to.
To my knowledge I have not had sex with any Mefites.
Only as long as one hand knows not what the other is doing.
I wish there was a way to make society and politics work like work like MeFi.
