Surely, there are many MeFites on Pocket. Their Friends function is the closest thing I've found to the social features on the dearly departed Google Reader Let's exchange usernames and become friends. [more inside]
I have seen a number of posts on articles from very well-known sources that everybody reads, like The Atlantic, The New York Times, The Guardian, The Washington Post, and The Huffington Post. They're interesting articles, but I wonder if they belong on MeFi when they're already so widely available? [more inside]
I read metafilter for the articles and would love a way of filtering posts which contain mainly articles. Maybe a tag is the answer. There is a great 'givemesomethingtoread' site hidden in metafilter. Any suggestions on the easiest way to get at it.
In the light of this FPP I would like to propose that today be declared RTFA day, in order to promote awareness of Reading The Fucking Article before posting comments.
LazyMefi request: Wouldn't it be cool to have a website that featured longer-form original essays, articles and writing from Mefites? [more inside]
A quick thanks to people linking to "print versions" of articles online instead of paginated versions. [more inside]
This is about the fifth or sixth thread since July to link to an e-mailed article from the Wall Street Journal Online. I only bring this up because it violates the terms of WSJ.com's subscriber agreement, and could cause copyright problems both for the individual users linking to them and for the 'Filter.
What is view on posting external articles of interest in metatalk much like metafilter ? Thanks. (PS Wash Post and NY Times articles are posted in comments, as I am somehow unable to link from here, maybe just as well until I get the response.)
