AskMe responses seem to be getting meaner over the years. It keeps me from posting anything but the most fact-based or unimportant questions, so I suspect it keeps other people from posting substantial questions, too. Is this the atmosphere we as a community want for AskMe? [more inside]
Sorry, but I need to make a couple of callouts. [more inside]
Is there a good collection of recent interesting/informative mefite profiles? If not can you all suggest some to me? [more inside]
A little shmoopy for y'all [more inside]
the 'best answer' option for the green is great but how about also having a just 'helpful' option? [more inside]
This (Medical Marijuana ask.mefi thread) is a good example of an ask metafilter thread where people don't answer the specific question of the poster, but still remain civil and helpful. Yay. So there's an existence proof that people can be helpful while not answering the question asked (and not fall all over themselves to be jerks).
