Weirdo alert! No, wait...

Welcome MeFi's own Jeff Vandermeer, who says he's just popping his head in on Scattercat's post on The Weird, but it would be lovely if we could entice him to stay.

Kids Gloves On

The recent Kiki Kannibal post links to an interesting article (it may even be the "best of the web") but it certainly hasn't lead to the "best of MetaFilter". [more inside]

Celebrity Dead Pool.

A lot of discussion has been had lately on obituary threads and more specifically on how crappy the initial post(s) of well known people are as posters try to take advantage of Metafilter's usual first post stays policy. Several people have proposed that Metafilter run a vetting system for obit posts or take other actions to reduce the need for multiple post deletions along with their attendant comments. One suggestion was for users to maintain a prewritten obituary pool for famous people similar to those used by news services. I've set up a proof of concept on the wiki here. [more inside]

It's really just a question

Just for future reference, when is it interesting and when is it not to post something about a naked celebrity? People seemed fairly interested in Tony Danza. Just asking.

Possibly the worst post in the history of Metafilter

This is possibly the worst post in the history of Metafilter.

Maybe this is only the second best

I was thinking, you know, maybe a post about a celebrity giving money to charity isn't so "best of the web."

accepting bets on next celebrity death on front page

Allright, place your bets for the next celebrity death on the front page for today. Third try's a charm, Mr. President.

We have been praised for 'strikingly literate commentary'

Metafilter spotting. I was slow to post this, thinking someone would ahve already picked it up.. while I like the props for 'strikingly literate commentary', the representative link is not *really* representative. (In my opinion)...

Celebrity guest FPP idea

Random idea re "Celebrity guest" front page posts - perhaps invite Dvorak (or other chosen person) to become a guest for a day (or permanent member), brief him on how its all works, allow him to front page post anything he chooses, and have all the ensuing commetary with his participation. Other choices might be Colin Powell (oops this isnt MTV), Tom Friedman of the NYT (so often linked to), even Andrew Sullivan, etc etc. Just a thought.
