What's Wrong With The Guardian?

A moderator removed a link to the Guardian because of something about that paper's LGBTQ stance. This is the first I've heard. What caused this reaction from MetaFilter? It seems to have come up only now, but I cannot find anything in recent Guardian issues that might have prompted the action.

Memorable or Favorite Quotes 2015

I started reading an article today about meeting Edward Snowden. However one of the first quotable snippets, stopped me cold. Now I am having trouble even remembering it wholly, and think a thread to quickly place incredible words, might be the stuff of Mefi. [more inside]

Did he ask, or did he guess?

One of ask.mefi's most favourited replies ever is singled out today for detailed praise by Guardian UK columnist Oliver Burkeman. Bravo tangerine!

The Guardian scrapes Metafilter...

I thought jb, cribcage and delmoi might be interested to know their comments in last week's thread about liberalism on US campuses were published in Saturday's Guardian.

The Guardian had a short article on Metafilter

The Guardian had a short article on Metafilter today, saying "The good news is that memberships are open again, at a price. Pay at least $10 via PayPal or Amazon's Honor system and you can get posting rights." Full marks for effort, zero for accuracy.

Metafilter in The Guardian: "She's Dead! Yes!"

"Meanwhile the internet, as always, provided a sceptical alternative to the reverent coverage of the Queen Mother's death. Too sceptical for some, actually: Americans were among those revolted by certain threads on our own Guardian Unlimited website, where conversations began "Queen Mum Snuffs It" and "She's Dead! Yes!" Over at Metafilter one reader commented acidly: 'You have to be pretty sick to get off on the death of a 101-year old woman. But then, they are Guardian readers...' Oooh get you!"

Metafilter mentioned again in today's 'Web Life' section of 'The Guardian' [more inside]

I wonder ... should Matt just put a quick link to the Washington Post and the Guardian on top MetaFilter, and suggest that their discussion boards be used to discuss their articles?

Your Seven Wonders of the Web

In light of the Guardian's Seven Wonders of the Web (though more importantly because it would be very interesting) would it be possible to ask Matt and some of Metafilter's most active members to share here in Metatalk what their selections would have been? (I assume its ok to ask and this is an appropriate post ?)
