Why are the homepage posts so saturated with the popular news outfits like Reuters and New York Times. Maybe two sections could be created. One for the popular news items, and one for the more offbeat, colorful, hard to come by stories/links/reports/etc.

This is a "human bug" not a "system bug."

I think I agree. Is it time to split MeFi?

Don't split MeFi. Instead, make each author select a category for their front-page posts, and allow readers to select which categories they want to view. That is a far more elegant solution and it creates subcommunities with a great deal of overlap, instead of the psychologically stronger division a whole new site would create.

They better be big enough for an X-Treme Big Gulp™.
