PSA: "Stylish" browser add-on steals your internet history

The popular "Stylish" browser extension, which allows you to download custom styles for a given site (such as making text more readable, removing UI cruft, or adding a professional white background), has been silently logging its users web activity for the last year and a half. The new owners of the add-on at the time, SimilarWeb, offer products including “Market Solutions To See All Your Competitors’ Traffic.”

MeFi Card Club appreciation

Hi y'all! Comments are closed on the MeFi Card Club announcement post, and now that we're a couple months in, I thought it'd be nice to give folks a place to share their appreciation for cards they've received and/or check in about cards they've sent. Big thanks to Fig for organizing & running the exchange, and to everyone else who has helped this along!

Podcast on the to-go menu

Pony request: When I'm reading MetaFilter at my desktop, the menu options at the top of the page include the podcast. But when I'm reading on my iPhone, the podcast isn't on the menu. Can we add it, please?

Metatalktail Hour: Looking forward to it!

Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! This week, I want to hear what you're looking forward to in your life right now! As always, these are conversation starters, not conversation-limiters, so tell us whatever's on your mind (avoiding only politics).

Group preserving access to reproductive healthcare, come what may?

Very quickly: somewhere back in the megathreads, I remember a bunch of y'all mentioning a group mobilizing to preserve women's access to reproductive healthcare services, including abortion, no matter what happens with the law of the land.

MetaGoodness

Tell me something good. Something happy. Maybe it's a thing you did. Maybe it's a thing that was done for you. Share something good with me and the rest of us. I feel like we need some of that. There's been a lot of serious happening the last few days and I want to just hear something good, positive, and light. I like this place and all of you. Be kind to each other, love yourself. Tell me something good.

¯\_(💩)_/¯

Multitudinous greetings, Sapients! Pop rock quiz, hot lot: Does MetaFilter have an official chat channel/room/area/quadrant/etc.? This is a fact: IT DOES! [previously: the unofficial MetaFilter chat site (yes, I am coordinating!)] It is a very fun and interesting and wondrous place (especially when I am not there) full of assorted cute animal GIFs (especially when Metafilter's Own bread crumbs is there) and random nonsense (especially when I AM there) and perennial nemises (because jeather, your personal nemesis, is there). I promise to you that we do not bite unless you notarize the consent form and submit it in dodeclicate six to eight weeks or greater in advance - guess how that tradition started! The cabal (TINCC) decrees that you guess, as the court records are sealed and salted and bound by blood. Ha HA! Dental appliances. Please stay frosty and/or toasty, and as always, vote your preferred quantum flavor of quidnunc kid #1!

AND I SAID WHAT ABOUT THE BOURNE IDENTITY

I nailed Breakfast at Tiffany's at karaoke tonight and I have MetaFilter to thank for it.

Hopeful Summer

Let's get some sparkle back into MetaFilter. This summer use the tag HopefulSummer to make posts about positive and hopeful things. It's easy to be down in the trenches with life, with politics, with the state of the world. Let's make MetaFilter somewhere people come to get a little shine back in their day, and lighten the load. Tell us about solar punk, about found communities, about magical art programs, about Native American women changing the world. Tell us about plants, and geology, and the sky. Tell us about the moments of joy that bring you peace and happiness. Tell us with links and HopefulSummer Posts.

Hey, I'm talkin' here!

In the site activity megathread some suggested users ought to have some way of knowing just how much of a thread they're occupying. I added a userscript just for that purpose to the MefiScripts repository. It puts summary stats just below the comment box.

Metatalktail Hour: Mispronunciations

Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! In honor of this hilarious thread, I want to know what words you well-read MeFites mispronounced when you first attempted them out loud! What words are you still avoiding? And of course your life updates!

World Cup 2018

Hard to believe it's been 4 years since the last World Cup, which after some discussion resulted in a series of front page posts [first, second, third, fourth].
With live events [like Olympics, Eurovision, Academy Awards] sometimes hosted on FanFare and sometimes hosted on MetaFilter [royal wedding], is there a plan, procedure or policy for 2018 World Cup On Metafilter?

Is This Moderators' Day?

It is. Please join me in a tradition stretching back to 2007 and help me thank the undeniably world-class moderators of MetaFilter Industries, LLC for all they do for our community.

Vets of MeFi

Veterans of MeFi, would you like a vets-only online environment to share with other MeFites?

Best thing you've read and/or heard lately

Spill the beans, what's the best thing you've read and/or heard lately? A great poem, short or long story, interesting article, a new single, an old album, or a live performance you just have to share?

MyPony request

Would it be possible to let users set My Mefi and My Ask sites as their default views when signed in? Partly to save clicks and partly (mostly on Ask) because there are some topics I'd rather not read about here.

Metatalktail Hour: First Job

Good Saturday evening, Metafilter! (Take 2, since I apparently can't keep track of my own doubles.) This week, I want to hear about your first job! And also your weirdest job. And of course what exciting plans you have for June!

Where to talk Soccer?

The 2018 World Cup begins in just two days! Some MeFites are going to VERY excited to talk about the games at length, and some MeFites are going to be VERY eager to not see every second FPP be soccer-related.

Help finding this now-offline piece?

I hope this is okay to ask - I'd love to find the piece from this excellent thread from the blue (Kate Good talks about her husband's surgery for The Toast's series about trans* matters). It was an excellent piece about love and trans* matters but also about just doing the things you can because that's what you do. The toast is gone and I'm having trouble even Googling the author to see if they have other works I could check out, or have published this piece elsewhere. Thank you in advance for any tips!
