MetaTalk Getting Crowded April 21, 2001 11:04 PM   Subscribe

Whoa! What's up with MetaTalk all of the sudden? Now we're getting multiple posts per day in several categories?! I count 12 (now 13) today alone. Is MetaTalk getting too crowded? The quality of the posts and discussion here is really going downhill. Remember when every post was on-topic, relevant, and well thought out? It just seems like posts are tossed up without thinking and comments get even less consideration. It's really wearing me out.

It looks like just today that's it's gotten so active. Too early to worry?

It's never too early!

Thank goodness for 1142.

MetaTalk: the new MetaFilter.

On a serious note - would an solve the slight off-topic nature of some threads?
I'm guilty myself of asking advice (the best place I figured would be 'weblog grab bag'), simply because I feel that MeFi members will offer the best advice.
But I realise Matt's a busy man.

That's fine, so long as we also have a for threads like these.

I'm not interested in running an site, it's already enough work to run metafilter and metatalk. It would be like piling on the work of maintaining an open topic mailing list (a lot more work than a focused list).

Dave, you're not supposed to give the secret code word out so easily. People have to work for it.

By the way, your a-list membership is now looking very, very doubtful.

Oh please, forgive me, Neale.
