AskMe: Hope me break the law!

Ask Metafilter: Help me become a professional shoplifter -- don't we have a guideline against helping people learn how to break the law via AskMe somewhere? Considering that repeat shoplifting is a felony, I think this would fall under that guideline.

I want my askme back!

Revisiting the two-week Ask limit: I still see questions scrolling off the front page daily. Has volume decreased any, or is this arbitrary limit still there just to be frustrating?

Does this question promote violence?

the reply is ALWAYS going to be "See a doctor"

Why do people keep asking medical questions on AskMe when the reply is ALWAYS going to be "See a doctor?" Should we have a message like they have on doctors phone lines that says, "If you think you have a medical problem, don't ask us, GO SEE A DOCTOR." in the AxMe posting page?

As a broader question, is community decision making and the internet replacing common sense?

Gmail Invites aren't cool in AskMe

I have a much bigger problem with the people who shit all over this thread than I do with the thread itself, which was rather cute. I still think it would've been a valid AxMe post even if the "win a gmail invite for being cute" portion hadn't been there.

Gun control debate in AskMe

Why are people debating gun control in this thread? It seems as if it was a simple request. It did not seem like there was an invitation or even suggestion for a gun control debate.
