My husband and I are both MeFites - he introduced me! - and we often wonder about other couples or close friends who reference Metafilter in various 'inside joke'-type ways. Do you do this? And how? [more inside]
This AskMe question had all the hallmarks of a frustrating unresolved drama in-the-making ... but it's suddenly got a happy ending!
This is just a gentle request for posters of RelationshipFilter -- please use names, even made up ones, instead of letters. [more inside]
Is it time for freetherapy.metafilter.com? Nothing against this poster or their particular situation, but it's perhaps the most egregious example I've seen of the "I just want someone to talk to" style of non-question that seems to increasingly pollute AskMe.
The definition of "chatfilter" is one that's hard to tie down, but an AskMe post starting with "Which love option would you choose?" and ending with "My mind's made up but I'm curious: What would you do?" seems like it fits the bill.
What are some good community sites, other than AskMetafilter, where people can intiate discussions on topics like this one? It's a good question in a bad place, IMO.
