Why no airplane terrorist post?

I'm curious about why nobody posted anything to the front page about the foiled terrorism attempt on the 25th. [more inside]

Has this email conversation been posted to the blue yet?

Has the Galloway-Di Rita email conversation been posted to the blue yet? I've done several searches and have not found it. This is newsfilter or so close to newsfilter that I don't want to screw up my hypocrisy with a double-post.

Bad newsfilter post.

This is why single link newsfilter posts are bad.

This is the most mean spirited thread

This is a front page tragedy. Lord Kinbote sums up my feelings well : "This is the most mean spirited thread I have ever read on MetaFilter."

Would that FPP have been kosher?

Yesterday Scotty McClellen was the whipping boy in one of the funniest press conferences I've ever seen. The left-leaning political blog Crooks and Liars hosted a video of the best 6 minutes.

I was considering posting it, since I thought it was defintately the best thing I had seen on the web yesterday, but I didn't want to hear all the nannies scream "newsfilter" all day.

So what's the deal? Would that FPP have been kosher? And if not, what would have been the best way to share the link with the community who, if they hadn't seen it, would have probably also loved it?

It's really great when newsfilter posts don't even have links.

Can we criticize?

It's great that Matt is just one of the guys when it comes to posting but, with respect, this post of his seems way below average. It's a short news item, from a big media source, which will already be known to those who follow the news. The post, though, is not the point. My question is "To what extent are we allowed - or able - to criticize his posts as if he were just another user?" Is it ungracious, ungrateful or downright rude, for instance? Fwiw, my opinion is that special treatment and undue deference are just as annoying and even insulting.

20 out of 27 posts yesterday were news pieces.

Of yesterday's 27 posts, no fewer than 20 of them were links to news sites or concerned recent events or happenings.

Too much Ananova.

Could we have a moratorium on Ananova links for now? While other news sources have not been dead on, they seem to be way off base more than others. There are quite a few reading Mefi right now, and disinfo from what looks like a credible source could hurt.
