Should a joke-heavy thread on a serious topic be thinned out?

Has the standard for deleting comments changed? It's been clear for a long time that early comments in a thread that tend to poison the thread ("This will end well"; "Getting popcorn," etc.), and comments likely to provoke a fighty derail, will be deleted. But is it now mod policy to delete jokes on the grounds that there are enough jokes already? Are we required to have serious discussions? This is the first time I've seen inoffensive jokes deleted on the blue, and I think it's something worth talking about. [more inside]

A-List Birthday Sidebar

From metafilter "sideblog" under Tuesday:

(all a-listers with birthdays will be mentioned here)

What is this about? There's nowhere to put my birthday when I click on "customize" so I can't help but conclude this is a service only tailored to an elite cadre of metafilter users. But what should I expect ... I've never been on an "a-list" in my life.
