Mefites are a smart bunch, but no one is perfect. Tell us, what is the wrongest comment you've made here?

Inspired by this comment:

Mislink fix

Two posts today accidentally link to Metafilter instead of their intended targets. On the main page, they link to metafilter.com, but within their individual threads, they link to their own individual threads. How is this done? Also, this seems like a pretty common mistake; I've seen it happen a few times before. To prevent the admins from having to go in and fix things, maybe the New Post code should check to see if any links point to the the main site (and if so, ask the user whether this was intended).

Screwed up a comment, paging someone with fixing powers

Ouch -- screwed up a comment in this promising thread by concreteforest. Hope someone is around with fixing powers, as it might prevent others posting.

Administrator, please hope me....

Due to my poor observation skills, multiple previews were unable to bring to my attention the error here. There should be an "IS" between "JAPAN" and "SO"--if it isn't too much trouble, would a mod please fix my mistake?

Spoiler alert

Eek, I tried to name this thread The ending of "The Good Thief" and the AskMe RSS feed truncated it before my first double-quote which means people will click it and be spoiled! O please, please fix it!

Fix a spelling mistake, please?

Mathowie et al, can we get "Chacno" changed to "Chaco" in this FPP?

I screwed up links.

I screwed up. Links I posted here are all screwy somehow. Instead of telling me what I did wrong, can someone tell me how to fix it?

oops - metafilter lead link?

OK, now that's just silly. Why would someone make the lead link a link to MetaFilter when they had two perfectly good links in the body of the post?

Request that Metatalk show number of new posts and comments: feature already exists

Why is there no "X# of new posts/X# of new comments" on MeTa? would it be that hard to implement?
