Anonymous Ask MetaFilter, we need to talk

The number of anonymous questions, as a percentage of all AskMe questions, has been rising steadily over time [13 out of 100 today]. We were sitting around talking about this over email and what limits we could implement, when we figured maybe we'd just try to talk about it instead.... [more inside]

Is this really an appropriate AskMe?

I thought AskMe questions about illegal activities were against the guidelines? Is vandalism not an illegal activity?

Historical badassery.

The question? I need your favorite badasses of history and science. The replies? 87 and counting. There's some great reading in this Ask thread, covering luminaries from Archimedes to Margaret Sanger.

Malamanteaus? Malamanteaux?

Today's XKCD strip links to a nonexistent Wikipedia word "malamanteau." Apparently its only prior use was in a 2007 AskMe answer by ludwig_van. There's a bit of controversy on the Wikipedia talk page over a dismissal of MeFi as an "unused website."

Help me find this askme

About 6mo to a year ago I think, there was an askme asking for quotes or rhymes to put in a bathroom to go along with lighting a match when you are done doing your business. I cannot find this anywhere. Can someone please help me find it? Thanks!

The harmonic relationship between chords that this progression contains are rock-solid.

I've been playing music all of my life, and I've never seen a better distillation of music theory than this comment. It's a full semester's worth of study in a few short paragraphs. I know it's been months since it appeared ... but this is truly worthy of a sidebar, or a book deal, whichever comes first.

Sidebar recommendation

I would like to submit this thread on ADD/ADHD for sidebarring. It contains some of the most honest, vulnerable, relatable descriptions of the effects on one's daily life that I have ever heard. Since ADD comes up a lot in AskMe, I think it would be valuable to highlight it.

I was coming in here to ask if this question wasn't a bit long. It has now been sliced up by the mods so it doesn't take up most of the first page of AskMe, and reads in paragraphs below the mod-added fold. However, it is still not a question. [more inside]
