Anchors for deleted comments

Since the megathreads are so long and cause problems with mobile browsers occasionally reloading the page, I've found it easiest to "checkpoint" my place by occasionally clicking on the timestamps so that my browser will update the URL to have the anchor of that comment. That way if the page is accidentally reloaded it will go back somewhere near the right location. If I'm unlucky enough to click on a comment that is deleted due to moderation, the anchor goes away and I must endlessly scroll hoping to find where I left off. Is it possible for the anchor tags for deleted posts be preserved into either the next comment or maybe the [moderators comment] that removed it?

OK, can someone help the Norwegian impaired understand this post and the reason for its deletion? I'm afraid Google translator renders its usual mystery.

Clinton Obama Filter redux

I'm sorry. I (really do!) hate it when this happens, but I unfortunately feel the need to both dip into the ugliness of U.S. politicsfilter and second-guess our moderators at the same time. [more inside]

Let's define news- and politics filter

"if you can craft a definition of news and politics related threads that anyone can read and judge their pending post against, and it's so clear and concise that no one would second guess it and wonder why their news or politics related thread was removed, I'd be happy to add it. Because right now, there's no way I could make a black & white, water-tight set of guidelines for discouraging and deleting political and news posts. I don't keep them around for the traffic, I keep them around because there's no easy way to say what should stay and what should go, as six years of metatalk have already covered." -mathowie

Let's do this.

Is "There is a special place in hell for Bush" really necessary?

I know everyone here voted for Kerry and despises the President, but is "There is a special place in hell for Bush" really necessary?

Politics Callout

May I say that if there must be politics in AskMe, papercake's scrupulously value-neutral question is the way to do it? And thank you, SidheDevil, for the brief teacher's-ruler-across-the-knuckles that kept us on topic.

Post election thread doesn't go well.

I'm not sure what you have in mind when it comes to "drastic" Matt, but this piece of crap needs to go... in my opinion of course.

Too much US politics

It's 9PM EST and as I look at the front page I see twenty posts today.

Ten of these are about United States politics and of the remaining ten, another two are somewhat related. I know it's important and all, but c'mon, enoughs enough.

Politics supporter subsites idea

I just had an idea, it's just an idea, let me know if I'm nuts or this has any merit. Let's say around June 1, when the US presidental campaign gets into its full stride, I setup two sub-metafilter sites, one at BushIn2004.metafilter.com, the other at KerryIn2004.metafilter.com for fans of either to blow off their steam and keep MeFi proper largely free of the campaign-squabble-of-the-day posts we're likely to see? (yeah, and I'm curious how a bush supporter blog would go over too)

Should we have a separate page for politics?

Would MetaFilter be improved by moving political discussions to their own community separate from the main page? I love politics, but I think these kinds of links breed like rabbits, and I sometimes wonder if I am contributing to the Free Republicazation of this site.

Political polls on Metafilter (posted in 2000)

Hurry!!! This is a time critical idea...

There has been a lot of great discussion about politics on MeFi. I think it would be cool to have a poll, listing all the candidates featured in discussions, just to see how the MeFi constituents would vote as a community.

I don't know if there are any aversions to web-based polling here at MeFi, but we won't get another chance to do this until 2004.
