Calling all Cards!
Having just mailed my cards for Project G.I.V.E. M.E. (that is, Great Internet Valentine Exchange, Metafilter Edition), and having had at least as much fun as I did with the winter holiday cards, I'm wondering if there's enough momentum and interest for another project. [more inside]
October Showers bring November Flowers
What we plant, we sow. The flowers we have during the summer* can be of our choosing. How about we take from whenever this is posted until November 1 to create as many simply happy, joyous, silly, or positive posts as possible to The Blue? Animal videos that are happy! "News Of The Weird" as long as the weird is wonderful! World Events News posts that bring a smile! We can use it right now! More explanation points! I mean, really, I'm looking at the front page right now, and it's not a happy place overall. Let's pull the nose up on this negativity train. [more inside]
April Showers Bring May Flowers*

Memorable or Favorite Quotes 2015
I started reading an article today about meeting Edward Snowden. However one of the first quotable snippets, stopped me cold. Now I am having trouble even remembering it wholly, and think a thread to quickly place incredible words, might be the stuff of Mefi. [more inside]
Mefite Amazon reviews of The Dress on Vox's famous website
I just wanted to give a shoutout to naju and NoraReed for having Amazon reviews quoted in this article from Vox about The Dress. If other mefites were also featured, I apologize for not recognizing your username.
It's been nice knowing you all.
I just had a comment summarily deleted because it might have been an unpopular opinion. This keeps happening. Thus, I have no reason to participate here anymore as a member. The moderation has now become stifling and schoolmarmish. It was nice while it lasted.
Is Andrew Sullivan Borrowing from the Blue?
This post on Andrew Sullivan's The Dish sure looks like a typical post on the blue, in a way that haven't seen before, and I'm a regular reader/subscriber. [more inside]
I think these xtranormal videos are kind of played out.
Global Warming *raspberry*
I think this could go on the blue, but the last time I tried on a link from a blog it was deleted. Would this work?
My memory is better than yours

Best of the web?
This is a question about the phrase "best of the web", as used in relation to Metafilter. I've been coming here for a while, for several years before I signed up, and I never remember seeing "best of the web" used officially to describe the purpose of Metafilter. The phrase "best of the web" appears nowhere in the FAQ. So where does this idea that MeFi is supposed to only be for links that are the "best of the web" come from? Anywhere official, or is it just something people made up over time?
No one would have believed in the first years of the twenty-first century...
The 00s. Let's talk about them here. There's been a lot and will continue to be a lot of discussion of this past decade - 2000-09 - in the coming weeks (and perhaps months). Can we please stop talking about what to call them on the blue? [more inside]
A pun is its own reword
The first time the expression "on the blue" was used as a euphemism for appearing on the front page of MetaFilter was coined by turaho fittingly when Nina Simone died.
YOU ARE TEARING ME APART LISA!!
Previously covered on the blue, The Room will be showing at Chandler Cinemas, May 15th at 11pm. If you haven't had a chance to see this fantastic trainwreck of a film, now would be a great opportunity. I'd like to host a meetup/pre-film party at my house starting around 6 ir 7 if any AZ Mefites would be interested. [more inside]
