Has "news.metafilter.com" ever been considered?

Has MetaFilter ever considered or discussed the idea of having a News subsite? A MetaNews sub for posting things that might otherwise be considered Newsfilter, and therefore Detestable Front Page Clutter? [more inside]

Where was that post about cutup vanity URLs?

Hello! I'm trying to find an old post about vanity URLs. It linked to a cool site where you could type in a domain idea and it would carve it up in fun ways using strange domains. So for 'johnsmith' it would offer not only johnsmith.com but also john.smi.th and other options...

Be careful what you wish for

Bug: If you set your prefs to show 99 days of posts, the front page shows 99 days of posts, thereby taking forever and making the server pretty unhappy, I bet. There should be some max built in there.

Suggestion: Set login cookie domains to ".metafilter.com" (note the two periods), so logins will work at metafilter.com, www.metafilter.com, and metatalk.metafilter.com.

Domain Hijacking and Metafilter

It turns out that MacSlash.com was no more "hijacked" than succaland.com was "stolen" (despite what it says in the MetaFilter sideblog). Like k10k.com and poetrysoc.com, they let their domain expire and it was snapped up. Leslie Harpold says that hoopla.com and smug.com hadn't expired, and Verisign has not contradicted her, but true domain hijackings don't seem all that common, do they?

lookin for chicago victim of verisign domain hijacking

Regarding the whole VeriSign domain hijacking debacle, I've interested a reporter for the Chicago Sun-Times in doing a story on the problem. However, he needs a Chicago connection -- anyone know of a victim in Chicago/northern Illinois?
