Can we 3D print that in Steampunk?

There seems to be a little, well, very dry churlishness towards BoingBoing on Metafilter. Is there a paricular reason why, or is it one of those ironic in-jokes that I am failing to pick up on? Any enlightenment is appreciated.

Matt on BoingBoing's podcast.

Matt on BoingBoing's podcast. The question remains - will mathowie's voice sound like I imagine? I imagine he sounds like a cross between Barry White and Barry Gibb.

Any other similar sites?

Metafilter is one of those sites I visit when I've got 2 seconds to rub together, and the rubbing won't intrude too much on my train of thought. I read the posts, and I can dive in when something seems too entertaining to pass up. Other sites that hit me the same way: Boing Boing, Fark, and /.. However, on a particularly loathsome day of work related idiocies, I find that I can exhaust those sites pretty quickly (particularly since I let my TotalFark subscription lapse). Does anyone have other locations that are equal parts whimsy and serious thought?

Should we be vituperative about links that already appeared on BB?

Did someone take over stavros' account?. I think most people disagree with his sentiments, but more importantly the way in which he voices them is entirely uncalled for.

what's "MetaFilter Matt" doing making ponies for Boing Boing

I don't mean to be prick (okay, maybe, but a funny one), but what's "MetaFilter Matt" doing making ponies for Boing Boing, when we have a million things for him to do here?

It used to be frowned upon to post links from other link agregators/filters. Has it changed?

When I used to read MeFi regularly, it was generally accepted that you didn't post anything from "the usual suspects" such as memepool, boing boing, b3ta, etc. because they themselves are weblogs about interesting, offbeat links and most readers read them as well as MeFi. Seeing as this "LSD art" story has been the top item on memepool for a week, I guess this policy has changed. (This is really not meant to sound rude or snide, apologies if it's taken that way)

There have been 9 FPPs taken from BoingBoing in the past month

There have been 9 FPPs taken from BoingBoing in the past month, not to mention the occasional Slashdot link. Sources like these are widely read and have their own discussion fora. Is making FPPs from them something that should be discouraged?
