I'd be remiss after publicly joining in the criticism of silent edits by the admins if I didn't publicly thank jessamyn for demonstrating that she does listen to complaints. Thanks jessamyn!

But we invaded Iraq to bring the the gift of democracy!

...oh. Um. Yeah, thanks, jessamyn!

Yes, thank you kindly.

"Silent" would indicate no notice that it happened.

Nice try, though, orthogonality. Why don't you just run your tongue right down the back of her trousers?

I EAT TAPES writes "'Silent' would indicate no notice that it happened."

"Silent" meaning an edit that wasn't noted as an edit, giving the impression that the text is the original text.

"Why don't you just run your tongue right down the back of her trousers?"

You eat TAPES and lint too?

Get with the program!

MeTa is for snarking, settling scores, and suppressing posts that threaten your ideology, all under the guise of "protecting MetaFilter's traditions".

Its is not for friendly congratulatory accolades. Puh-leese.

Someone is feeling lonely.

Orthogonality isn't lonely. They're engaging in long-term meta-counter psychological operations akin to MKULTRA or COINTELPRO.

When you wake up to soundtrucks blaring Celine Dion mixed with scatological GG Allin rants and snippets of "numbers stations" combined with massive projections of rapid-fire images of exploding baby heads, moist and fluffy cake (made of fishmeal) and 50s era Sears undergarment photospreads it'll all be far too late.

But don't say I didn't warn you.

Me? I've got a whole buncha tinfoil, and am training to be an expert hatmaker.

Consider this a pre-order.

Do you do custom stuff? Because I would totally be into a gold-leaf kind of thing, with diamond-chip initials.

I do indeed do custom or contract foil-crinkling. And I've even got a roll of genuine NASA gold SpaceFoil(TM) on order. (Not any of that cheap lead foil stuff the Russian engineers eat, or even worse, Gold colored aluminized mylar.)

But being carbon-based, you don't want to use diamond chip for your spanktacular brain-protection blingage. Crystallized carbon resonates on a four-fold log scale with the carbon in your head, leading to rather messy explosions when the scanning and programming rays sweep over you.

However, I've just recieved shipment of a fine assortment of piezo-activated quartz products ranging from fine powders and dusts to attractively shiny rhinestone-sized bits on up to head-sized points that can be hollowed out and worn just like DEVO's most excellent (and hard to find and very often counterfeited) Energy Domes, but only shinier and more energetic. (Just don't wear them in the presence of The Atomic Cowboy, or he'll feed you live to his pit of specially bred of eyeless, hairless, genetically infantilized but oh-so-ravenous Pinkos.)
