Bollywood screenwriting overload

Cripes, how long did that take you?

Annoyed by "What [x] are you most like?" Sites

Am I the only one who finds the proliferation of What [x] are you most like sites on the Internet annoying? Note that I'm not saying they shouldn't be linked on the front page, just that most of the ones I've seen on the Net as a whole have been pointless and increasingly nonsensical. The sites that attempt to tell you how [y] you are with a percentage are equally ludicrous. I am not, for example, 22% goth.

Is it alright to post sites that aren't in English?

Is it alright to post sites that aren't in English? I know many MeFites speak other languages, and don't see why it should be limited to English-language sites.

Yasmine Bleeth FPP goes to the bit bucket: why

Why was the last post on Jasmine Bleeth erased from the front page? I'm mostly just curious since I'm still figuring out the rules on front page posting. Why was this particular thread deleted? Or do I deserve an explanation?

Should links be described?

Shouldn't front page posts describe the content of the linked material? Lately a few posts have offered a brief opinion of the linked material without describing it (e.g. this one, this one, and this one), which I find a bit of a nuisance because I have to dig just to find out what's going on. By no means am I trying to criticize the posters; I simply wanted to draw attention to a general trend that might need correcting. What do you think?

Two posts by the same person in one day! Too much!

There have been two people today who have posted two links on the front page. (one being a double post) How do you think limiting people to one front page post a day would work out? Or maybe even one every three days? a week?

"ferver" post should be deleted

Can you get rid of this "ferver" post? It's hurting my brain.

Is a link to the Onion never justified?

Sometimes conventional wisdom simply doesn't seem to apply. Or does it?

One WTC thread a day

Since the large number of WTC threads is pissing off our leader, why don't longtimers post related comments and links only in the first WTC thread of the day and let the others disappear from our consciousness as quickly as that Live WTC tribute song?

I just wish to apologise.

I just wish to apologise for my part in what is possibly the worst MeFi day in recent memory. I think I'm going to skip the next week and see how it looks when I get back.

Should I filter MetaFilter (asks mathowie)?

This thread sucks. The link doesn't jump down to the story, the subject matter isn't very funny or interesting, it's just stupid. The post is too long, the comments are pretty pointless. I would delete it, but it could create more trouble than it is worth. What should be done about sub-par links? Anything? Take the good with the bad?

Feature for reporting and removing duplicate posts?

Report a double post. (more inside)

This post is practically a double

It's posts like this one that really disappoint me. Talk about previously covered territory -- every element of that post has been discussed here at one point or another. If it's an important topic that needs more discussion, could we at least wait until there is some new development that gives a proper excuse for bringing it up? Alternately, I'll just shut up and we can all go back to flogging the dead horse.

Stop editorializing on front page

Dear longtime visitors to MetaFilter: Don't do this.

I think I smell a (mefi) rat

A gigantic "MEFI RAT" is flashing when I load the page. Or maybe "SOME FINE BUREAUCRATS" is. Either way, it's pretty clever. (How's that working out for you?) And I can't find it in the source, so it's both clever and sneaky.

Is this a hack, or a Haughey?

MeFi post as callout

I think starting a new front-page thread just to call another user out is going too far, especially when said user explicitly asks to take it to e-mail.

Self Linking considered harmful...to poster!

I would like to propose that in the event that someone uses metafilter to blog their own site, a pre-selected jury of their metafilter peers be allowed to enter the offender's domicile and beat the offender's computer(s) into complete submission. I respectfully suggest a Louisville Slugger would be best suited for this, however I have heard that a well balanced ax handle would likely be a competant substitute.
