What got nuked? March 13, 2003 7:11 PM   Subscribe

Invoking the Lazyfilter again...How cool would it be to set up the AntiMetafilter somewhere? A blog that consists solely of the posts that got deleted from the big blue, complete with mathowie's reason for nuking.

Or am I the only one who idly runs my mouse over the links on the front page, seeking out the missing post numbers so I can see who got shot down for what?

If I am, I'm OK with that, just a little weirded out by myself.

From the tone of some of the people round here, you'd think Fark was the antimetafilter.

Ok that's I'm invoking the tired-of-people-being-lazyFilter.



Anyway go to lofi.mefi

I hope this hasn't been posted before, but try LoFi

Yep, that's pretty much what Matt said last time this was brought up. Anyway, it would make posting a bad link a form of contributing to the site, since a bad link on Metafilter is a great link on Bizarro Metafilter. And that's bad.

So, deleted posts from Bizarro MetaFilter would show up on MetaFilter?

i have this koala petting thing that might be just perfect!

And, if Bizarro MetaFilter is the opposite of MetaFilter, we would have to get someone to set up a spin-off site about, say, ways to pet a Koala?

skallas- the official term as coined by Matt was too good to be altered- "King of the Shit Pile."

And did I completely miss something about petting Koalas?

If we all put out heads together we can improve our King of the Shit Pile ranking.

Looking at the front page the last few days, I'd have to say the shitpile here is pretty darn stinky on its very own.

From the tone of some of the people round here, you'd think Fark was the antimetafilter.

Metafilter has already become Fark, more or less.

Also, I think Matt is the only person that has ever invoked 'lazyfilter' and not been strung up by his nuts (and/or gender-specific other sensitive bits). Just a friendly heads-up, there.

I for one enjoy the concept of applying "filter" to any common term used on this site as it can only result in an eventual virtual Smurf village. I always assumed that's why it was blue in the first place.

This isn't anti-Metafilter, it's modulo-Metafilter.

I'm just sayin'.

And I, too, seem to have missed the koala memo. *cries*

Better find a safer hiding place quonsar, that stuff is valuable.

tonight the metafilter front page seems irresistibly fascinating and clever to me. is it just because i am a tiny bit drunk? normally it seems dull as dishwater.

490 days of dull as dishwater. Time to take up a colection so we can buy mokey a life.

Yes mokey, MetaFilter has been improved. It is now infused with the spirit of the koala, and you are seeing the results of that most opportune intercession.

It is the power of koala that compells you!
