What's up with all the blink tags all of a sudden?

It seems like the blink tag post has spurred a resurgence of their use here. What's up with that? [more inside]

We have a new meme. Yay! But it's like fingernails across a chalkboard. Boo!

Has anyone else noticed the quick spread of Yay! and Boo! on Metafilter, particularly AskMetafilter? I find it very annoying. I'm wondering whether others have noticed this too. [more inside]

Six Colours Blue

This post is Pepsi-Blue. divabat isn't even trying to hide the fact. Smarties Australia paired 8 kids up with 8 artists to create art based on each Smarties colour ... getting the product name in twice in the lead sentence. [more inside]

Too many embedded MP3's spoil the post

Posting one embedded MP3 might be funny. Posting two is being a jerk. Posting three is... well... something to bring up on MeTa.

Jingle Rock Bell

AskMefiFollowup: I like to sing Jingle Bell Rock, but using only the words "bell", "rock", and "jingle":

bell rock jingle rock
Bell jingle rock
Rock jingle rock
Bell jingle bell
Rock bell
Rock rock bell
Jingle rock, jingle rock
Bell bell bell

Drives my wife nuts. I'd record an MP3 of me doing it if someone could find me a karaoke track.

Can we close signups now?

Can we close the door now? I'm genuinely happy to have some new blood, but here's the problem. Pretty much everyone who's been reading the site with their noses against the glass has been let in. Hereafter, we're going to get a bunch of folks who happen to be wandering by, and know nothing of how things are done around here. (I don't know if that's the case with notmtwain, I'm only using his/her post as an example because it glares so.) We can always open it up again later, but can we have a moratorium on new users? Just for now? Please?

A William Carlos Williams poem, with every line as a link?

A William Carlos Williams poem, with every line as a link? Apart from wasting a dozen lines of front page space, it strikes me that the contribution didn't engender much discussion aside from debating how annoying the post was.
