Dump "awesome"

Aren't you tired of "awesome"? [more inside]

Making a list, checking it twice.

Just a suggestion for quality assurance: Can people think twice about posting the badly written, useless, inaccurate "lists" that churn through daily on Digg and Delicious? [more inside]

Self appointed sanctimonious MeFi gods/censors

I am struck by the amount of clutter which is created by apparently self appointed sanctimonious MeFi gods/censors. Comments on etiquette, self promotion etc are constructive, however what on earth (other than self promotion) is achieved by pointing out that you have seen something before or that it doesn't interest you. So what? I would have no interest whatsoever in a post linking to a 1973 article about bestiality amongst jazz lovers but that is just me and I am not small minded enough to pontificate against those who want to follow this particular hobby. The one thing I can conceive of that would be more tedious than reading the article would be wading through "old link - I've seen it before" or "this is boring". This is hypocrisy gone mad.
Anyone else?

That was a bad post.

http://www.metafilter.com/mefi/36862 is nothing but pure hate speech. And uninteresting boring hate speech at that.

Been-there-done-that Button Pony Request

Been there/Done that:

A button so that if a significant number of readers mark a post as a duplicate or just really boring, etc. then your preferences filter it out. So if someone were to post AYBABTU again, annoyed readers would mark it, and those who came later wouldn't see it unless they turned off their filter.

It’s boring, though.
