I broke my FPP!

So despite reading the MeFi Wiki and crunchland's profile, I managed to screw up my FPP ( this one ) and it now appears on the home page without a title. Would one of the admins be kind enough to correct the link title of the post? You may also suggest suitable means of atonement for this extremely n00b-ish screwup.

"Let's Bring Back Slavery!"

Possible FPP for somebody? I don't feel quite up to making a good FPP out of this, nor do I want to "clutter" the Blue with a one-link "newsfilter" item. But I do think that this smacks of an underhanded attempt to restore involuntary servitude, especially given the booming prison population thanks to harsh drugs laws etc. (I also wonder why the damn "farmers" can't simply put Help Wanted ads in the paper; they are willing to pay a decent wage to get their crops tended, right?)

Request: click and limit to specific poster

My first-ever pony request: In a given thread, what about a link next to each member's individual comments, that is titled "see all comments by this member in this thread." So, say, I want to see all of mathowie's comments in a particular thread, I click on that link and it gives me a page with just mathowie's comments in that thread. I know you can see all of a member's comments by going to their user page, but it's kind of cumbersome to click back and forth and you can't view all the comments together. It would be nice to have them all thrown up on one page. It would help us evaluate the position or argument that the person is developing throughout the thread.

Please side bar this Microsoft office sound

Could one of these maybe get side-barred? It's not the easiest thing to search for, and it's been asked twice within a 7 day period...

Is MeFi protected against cross-site request forgery?

Is MeFi protected against CSRF? I know the logout link isn't (should be a form button anyway) and could be triggered by displaying an image to a MeFi user, but if the forms are vulnerable things could get nasty (imagine someone posting a link that changes your prefs, or makes you create a post, etc.). Just askin'...

Can we request posts to be made by other people?

Just a thought....in what location could we put blue requests? Ie. if I wanted someone to make an excellent post about something or someone I had interest in, but I don't have the expertise or the time, where would such a request be made?

Deletion request

In this post, please delete the link to http://www.barnesreview.org/ from the text "What happened next is told in his own words". I didn't realize that the barnes review was a holocaust denier's journal.

Metafilter users closest to this user

Pony: at the end of the new "MetaFilter users near this user" query slap an "order by miles ascending". Not a big deal. I just want to stalk people in order, s'all. (That's a pretty damned sweet feature, btw).

The ability to mark a comment for another user's attention: any use?

Pony: alternate payment methods

Can we get another way to pay for accounts then paypal? I'd rather pay $20 for an account through another service then use them. There are several, relatively cheap credit card transaction services out there.

OSX dashboard widget for recent MeFi threads?

So we have a bunch of intelligent os x programmers out there, right? Anybody willing and able to create a dashboard widget that spits out the past 10 threads in MeFi, or favorites that someone might want to track, or threads with the latest comments, etc? I just upgraded to Tiger and love the widgets; unfortunately, not enough of them are seriously practical for me. This, on the other hand, would be very useful.

Please obliviate drakepool. He wants his metafilter output erased and his time here behind him. He can't communicate what he think anyway. He content to go back to laying his nonsense on his friends...

Can I link to my organisation's new product on Mefi?

I work for a large organisation that has launched a new web product. Its a paid for service. I'd like to post a link in the blue, as I am personally interested in what people think about it. I do not work on the product, but I do use it. Is this against policy?

Sarcasm within.

Could there be a feature that automatically posts the nude picture of the poster when a disparaging comment about anyone's physical appearance is made?

Safari Sidebars?

I'm a big fan of Safari. Any chance of Matt, or any other programmers here, creating a MeFi sidebar for this browser?

How much traffic does MetaFilter get?

All I want to know is -- roughly how much traffic does MetaFilter get? There must be a fair amount of people unable to become members.

Is it secret, or is it safe?

Please, if your front page post links to anywhere remotely not worksafe, could you make sure this is properly flagged?

Add visual delimiters between fpps?

On the front page I sometimes mistake a thread with an empty line and then another link in the comment for two separate threads. I don't associate all of the text with a single post because the spacing is the same as it would be for two posts. It's a minor thing and I realize there was more to the comment when I view it, but what about adding a delimiter to make it easier to tell threads apart? Or am I the only one that makes this mistake?

Please delete the link to the Daniel Pearl video

Out of respect for the dead, and in the interest of keeping this community a respectable forum, could Matt please delete the link to the Daniel Pearl video . . . And perhaps place a moratorium on this kind of posting in the future? MetaFilter isn't Stile or Rotten.com, and I'd prefer the site not sink to that level.

Why is my link munged?

I tried to build a (hideous but real) link and it kept getting munged.

Powered By Bookmarks

How about a bookmark for the lovely 'powered by' bar? It'd make it even easier to point people to how cool it is.

One after another

Curious why posts go chronologically down the page and not up (most recent at top). At least as an option, this would seem a good idea.

Duplicate Link Pony Request

So when's that feature gonna come to negate repeat links? There've been two posts today -- last page on net, Simpsons bootlegs -- that have been reruns of things we've seen within the last month.
