YouTubeFilter. I'm not against YouTube links, but is context too much to ask for? Why not a policy to abolish stand-alone YouTube links without an associative frame?
October 14, 2003: A golden day for Metafilter? Interesting threads. Very little in the way of "you're wrong, no you're wrong," revealing anecdotes, thoughtful comments. Can we keep this up for a week? Pat yourselves on the back, MeFites. I haven't seen a day this good here in a while.
"I couldn't stop posting," said Brad in a one-poster thread. I'm as much for collaborative wordplay as the next guy, but when one person monopolizes a thread like this over the course of several hours, it's the kind of thing that belongs on his own blog.
Pike! What do we do about this?
To add to the guidelines: FPPs with food mentioned should be discouraged. Granted, I find "fajitas" as funny as the next guy and this issue, by any reasonable assessment, is ridiculous. But if people can't control themselves when the word "fajitas" is mentioned, then it probably shouldn't be mentioned at all.
Hatred, intolerance, name calling, scatology. This is easily one of the worst Metafilter threads I've ever seen.
