biscotti is awesome with animals.

So as to avoid a slow Meta day, heaven forbid, I thought I'd call out biscotti on a very long pattern of knowledgeable AskMe contributions related to various four-legged beasts.

an exemplary specimen

I would just like to point out that the way in which louigi formatted his multi-question post to AskMe is superb, and should be a model for future questions of this nature.

Metafilter's own Adam Savage in the Christian Science Monitor

"Jamie is all about total, complete, and utter control. Thinking first and then acting. Adam is about acting first and then thinking."

Shoutouts to FuzzyVerde

I just wanted to publicly thank FuzzyVerde, who actually delivered three tubs of ice cream to my pregnant sister today for her birthday (complete with festive cooler). The idea that a complete stranger halfway around the world would offer to help me out is just amazing. I love MeFites!

Awesome belated answer on obscure criminal case

About 14 months ago, I posted a random Ask Metafilter about an obscure criminal case and described it in weak detail. Today I was going through some of my old questions (as you do), and noticed that the question was answered beautifully about three months ago by someone who may have ponied up the membership fee just to answer it. Which is really neat. So I just want to point out how cool it is that someone should do that.

Rambling drunken but sincere praise

All I'm saying is that sometimes people don't always know exatly how they'd like to express themselves. AXMETATILTER RULES ALL THE OTHER BITCHES! jesadmin is AWESOME and LAME at the same time. I love her contribution, but I do agree that the CHATFILTER has been kind of out of control. I'm drunk, and I want to fight. Seriously, though, I don;t have any problem with anone. I agree that the pruning has been inconsistent. I love you. this is a good link to explain it all. YEAH. My boy browner is the best. Anyway, the point of this post is that Metafilter has become bittersweet. Thoughts?

I thank each and every one of you.

Not Important Just Expression: I just have to say that I love metafilter. I have been aided in so many ways for years, by this wonderful place. I don't know when I started, but I know it carried me through 9-11 for example. We all owe a debt of gratitude to the founders and maintainers, for the ethic and for helping us maintain the spirit. I thank each and every one of you.

New post with more info requested

I was intrigued by thirteenkiller's post about the possibility of an impressive ancient pyramid in Bosnia. Now I see the story is getting some traction. I went to the original post hoping to add the link as a comment; but, it said, "This thread has been archived and is closed to new comments."

I don't want to FPP this follow-up. I want to call it to thirteenkiller's attention. I think thirteenkiller has already researched this once and may want to follow up with another really swell post (I sure liked the first one).

How do I do that?

mefi cd swap - worth the wait

How about a round of applause for skygazer, missing member of mefi swapset grey from 11/05 who not only finally sent along the CDs, but included a short handwritten note, a tiny toy gun, an even smaller piece of black licorice, a guitar string, and a particularly meaningful (to me at least) blank postcard of early concept designs of the space shuttle.

All of this arrived in the mail in the midst of particularly bad week, so to receive a bit of human sharedness and new music to discover from a total stranger was great. My faith in mefi and humanity is restored. Thank you.

Potential Fiery Train Wrecks Averted!

Two AskMe posts on interracial adoption and interracial breeding within an hour of each other. They had the potential to become fiery train wrecks, but instead, the answers were thoughtful and civil. Thanks for the quality discourse!

Kirkaracha Love

Kudos to kirkaracha for dodging the urge to be clever and actually making the text of his link to IMDB the name of the movie. Rather than content free nouns, adverb or adjectives. "Honey, I've got a tool that'll fix anything." -- Actor in this sequel would have been less useful.

Blessings for MetaFilter.

A Lepechaun's wish: Metafilter, may ye last for a thousand years and make Mathowie the Prez of the U.S.!

For those of us living here and there, may our souls return safely home!

Outstanding comment saves D&D thread from troll

It started off as an innocent thread about D&D. It degenerated into a trainwreck of trolling and vituperation. But then, at the last, it was rescued by a truly outstanding comment. This is both what I hate and what I love most about metafilter.

This guy just unknowingly hooked me up. For years I have been blown off by doctors with sypmtoms that I finally have a name for.

L. Fitzgerald Sjoberg writing in Wired

Over at Wired News, there's a new article from(our very own) Lore Sjoberg, and it just happens to touch on the topics of opinion, the internet, and posters. And color me dumb, but I catch a hint of the old Metafilter ethos reflected.

You have got to be joking? No. Considering the number of self-links that we've been having lately, I think that it's worth everyone's time to appreciate people who are keeping their eyes open for them, and to give them credit for trying, even if that particular link turned out to be a dud.

Thanks for the community warmth.

Metafilterites rock. After posting this, I not only received a great number of helpful suggestions, but in my inbox today found a number of emails offering donations totaling to well, well, well over the amount of money I spent on the puppy. Unbeknownst to me my RL friends have also been holding a collection, so today has been a wonderful reminder of the generosity of friends and strangers and how awesome people are in general. Thank you! You guys are great! [MI]
