It's is not the possessive form of it.

The apostrophe seems to trip up just about everyone, even many Mefites. For future reference, you may want to bookmark this site that gives the 13 rules for the use of the apostrophe.

Too many links makes a post something something

Can some sort of rule/guideline/something be considered, stating that FPP's shouldn't have a bajillion links, one in each individual word?

I know it's not a serious thing, and a programmatic solution isn't the way to go, but when I see posts like this it drives me nuts. Am I the only one?

Why was my post to badassbuddy.com deleted?

I posted a link on MeFi today to www.badassbuddy.com. It is a website that features tons of buddy icons for AOL IM. Matt took it down and I can't figure out why. Any ideas?

Back themed posts

Backmasking? Backlinking? Backsliding? Backstabbing? Back massage?
Surely this is no coincidence - am I missing some hilarious in-joke here or is there a new MeFi policy whereby all front page posts must be self-referential and carry some allusion to regression? Personally I'd rather have the old, plain no-back Metafilter back.

Are you supposed to reference your source?

Are you supposed to reference your source? Sometimes I feel like I should let others know where I found the info and other times I don't feel it adds anything to the post. I've often seen people add a [link via X site] to their posts. In my post here I didn't think it was necessary to include that I saw the article in the latest WIRED magazine b/c if you subscribe to or read WIRED you saw it and if you don't then it's new to you. Not suprisingly, the obligatory backhanded comment was made.

New spice, same as old spice

British widow thread. (a) Just a news story. (b) Should have been in the previous thread.

But what ought to happen when you find new information on an old topic and the original thread is now a little stale?

Guidelines or opinions on ultra-long essay-style comments?
