Why MetaFilter is Awesome And Why the World Needs to Know [more inside]
Suggestion to reduce complaint-filter: a MeTa queue similar to anonymous AskMe. If a complaint can be handled by an admin one-on-one, the admin can deny the requested post and take the conversation to e-mail. If it's a meetup request or a policy issue that seems worthy of discussion, the admin can approve it and let everyone chime in.
Do we need periodic MeTa "What current posts are you looking for but can't find?" consolidated threads (answering q's like this and this and this), lessening these same threads in AskMe? Do we need occasional MeTa posts in which we can all ask about AskMe post resolutions, too, like "Did she get all the glass out of her underwear?" Is this a plan? Pros/cons? Does the question of pros/cons of this plan need ITS OWN MeTa post, or is that getting all corporate/committee/Dilbert/Peter Principle/Call in the consultants?
The Pollo Campero discussion is a nice example of members drowning out derailing attempts without resorting to MetaTalk (at least until I fucked it up by bringing it here). Would MetaFilter be better off without an etiquette/policy section in the gray?
