If an FPP about a member (even if they happen to be famous) is posted, but it doesn't provide any fruitful information for others to right a situation where they feel they have been overcharged, then why is it allowed?
Some guy: How 'bout that Citi Field? Me: You mean the green?
I wore my brand spankin' new Mets-style MetaFilter t-shirt out in the streets of New York yesterday. Hilarity ensued. [more inside]
The only gift you'll ever get back and love even more.
Because I spent June 15 compressed at the bulkhead at the end of two Adventists reading: He: "The (New, Illustrated) Great Controversy" and She: "Creation Illustrated: The Christian Alternative to National Geographic" I forgot to mention the most important thing you can do all day! [more inside]
I've noticed a particularly pronounced uptick in the number of favorites comments are getting. Has Metafilter become funnier, or more salient? Or, you know.

He was in his armchair, watching a John Wayne movie. It could have been so much worse.
Another "Best of Metafilter" request. So, my grandfather died today (as I anticipated a few months ago), and one of my first reactions is to look to Metafilter for comfort and guidance. I've found a few relevant threads on my own (just taking a cursory glance at ColdChef's posting history helps put death in perspective), but I'd appreciate other mefites' help: what are the most helpful, or comforting, or grounding threads you've read on the site that have to do with death and grieving?

Monkeys and Typewriters
How big (in bytes) is Metafilter? [more inside]
It actually is kind of serious business.
I, too, am trying to find a comment I'm almost certain I read on the Blue. It was a refutation of the glib, "The internets is serious business!"-style dismissal of people who would deign to take anything said online to heart. The tone of the comment was something to the effect of, "Sure, it's no big deal, it has only connected much of the world's population in ways only dreamed of," or something. I'm not doing it justice, nor am I trying to. The commenter might have been quoting someone else. Many thanks to anyone who can locate this!
Award for Mefite Genius?
How about if the Metafilter Scholarship be used as an award for a project by a Mefite they can present publicly at the big 10th anniversary event?

Has anyone thought about doing a periodic podcast of tunes exclusively from music.metafilter? Would Metafilter or any of the artists have an issue with someone doing this? Would anyone want to host it or help in other ways? Would anyone listen to it?

metafilter data analysis
Has anyone done any interesting analysis of metafilter data? I'd like to see average posts/day, average comments/post over time, for starters. But I bet there are many more interesting/pointless questions to be answered beyond that.
If I had the force, I would choke the shit out of you.

MetaFilter in the media
MetaFilter gets a mention in M Magazine (the magazine that comes with The Age in Melbourne). Slightly odd reference, not an internet sort of article. [more inside]
From the email I sent to nickyskye this morning:
Should've known better... I presume you didn't meant to post this to the front page, dude. -- cortex [more inside]
This dude is a troll.
After 8 years of lurking, Gamien Boffenburg crawls out of the woodwork to ... defend the use of the swastika, compare Israel to Nazi Germany, and joke about sexually assaulting a Zionist. And that's it. That's all he brings to the table. Gamien Boffenburg, I hereby invite you to crawl back under whichever rock you came from.
Wow. I'm so impressed with the healthy, interesting, and totally civil (from what I've read) discussion in this post . I just wanted to say THANK YOU. :) [more inside]

Who's broken? Metafilter or me?

MeFi iPhone icon unavailable?
Anyone else unable to add a custom MeFi icon webclip to their iPhone home screen? I just get a snapshot of the page, instead of the nice blue MF logo (which was working for me earlier this year.) Other sites with this functionality are working fine. Tech Specs: first gen iPhone, OS 2.0, unlocked and jailbroken.
Because for some reason I can't sign into metafilter's main page, I thought I'd give a brief update on the situation in this thread here. [more inside]
