beautiful obit for marlon brando

I hate ObitFiler as much as the next guy, but this almost-literary Brando remembrance made me forget why. Thanks, Dobbs.

AskMe is awesome

Ask MetaFilter has been a fantastic part of my life, and I look forward to growing old with it by my side. Of course it will mature, and I'm sure that it will never be anything less than an elegant jem. However, I sincerely hope that, no matter what, there will be a way to view it exactly as it is now. Also, we've taken countless bookmarks together, I hope those will always be in the same place so that I can look back on the memories.

Communism thread NOT a total train wreck; news at 11

Could have been a total train wreck. Wasn't. But in an almost http://www.metafilter.com/mefi/32975#667562">bizarro twist, the thread brought out all kinds of insights into the problems of not only communism but general ideologies systems of political power. We did good.

Asperger's Shoutout

Just a shoutout to everyone in the Asperger's Syndrome thread -- really interesting, and civil, even with disagreements. Ponies for everyone! (and Lairbob, SpecialK, and calwatch get thoroughbreds)

Shoutout: excellent answer proves AskMe works

This is how AskMetafilter works. Also, I thought it would be nice to call someone out for something positive, I don't know about anyone else but it's posts like this that keep me coming back. Thanks, chrismear.

crunchland is crunchtastic!

Since September 1st (he's been doing it for longer than that, but I don't know how to count beyond 40), crunchland has posted approximately 40 threads to the blue. Most of these links have been fantastic eye and/or brain candy. I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you and that I hope the well isn't running dry. Keep it up!

Awesome comment from monju_bosatsu!

I feel compelled to publicly applaud and congratulate monju_bosatsu for this superb and interesting essay, elevating an otherwise lackluster post to greatness.

Thank you so so much

A year and four days after it was posted, I just wanted to offer my praise and thanks to everyone who contributed to this, the most useful thread ever.

good post on Bush's UN speech by insomnia_lj

While sometimes I know the Bush Bad threads wear on a number of us (not to mention the problems with Newsfilter), I wanted to single out today's post by insomnia_lj linking to Bush's UN speech as good. [more inside]

Thanks to those who helped me prep for Jeopardy!

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank those MeTa-folks who helped me out with advice on preparing for Jeopardy.

No, I didn't win, but I achieved my personal goal of not spazzing out in front of the cameras and also managed to chit-chat with Alex, answered a few tough questions, and even got a (intentional) laugh out of the audience.

You can watch me on September 15th (check your local listings for times).

Talkin' 'Bout My G-G-G-Generation

The 10K Generation, to which I belong, being member 10947 of September 3, joined MetaFilter between August 1 and September 5 2001, just before the 9/11 influx, and is currently enjoying its second anniversary here. Does each generation, according to how and when they joined, have its own personality? Mine, I would say, judging by a quick survey, is moody, quiet and difficult. What's yours like?

Have we returned to a civil MetaFilter?

Reasonable and reasoned talk about the war? a global warming thread where people correct themselves and say "climate change"? Is Mefi returning to civility? Which is to say, normality???

Shoutout: newsfilter thread goes big

Congratulations on being civil.

Congratulations to all who participated in the recent thread on evangelical Christians and why people dislike them. The level of constructive dialogue on all sides of the issue was truly miraculous ...hehe. Why did this thread succeed when so many other religious threads quickly degrade into vicious flamewars?

Thanks everyone

Is it all right to use MetaTalk to thank everyone for wonderful links yesterday? Matt, that was a great thing. I can't recall being so moved by a website before. Thank you, everyone, for that. (and sorry if this is not appropriate for MetaTalk)

I want to break a rule here and propose a shoutout

I want to break a rule here and propose a shoutout - a cheerleader post, if you will indulge me. I note a immense upward jump in the quality of both MeFi and MeTa posts and comments, with a corresponding downward jump in noise, trolling and trash. I note comments by Matt have a more relaxed tone than in the past few weeks. I see discussions kept to a mostly civil if not downright respectful tone. I observe efforts running the gamut from herculean to humorous by members like frykitty, y6y6y6, waxy, riffola, adrianhon, et al, to help make this wondrous place ever more enjoyable and user friendly. I want to say thank you, to everyone. [*Cue Dorothy, who taps heels of ruby slippers 3 times, chants "There's no place like Metafilter, there's no place like Metafilter, there's no place like Metafilter...*]

Awesome info in "breaking news"

A "breaking news" thread we can all admire. Bravo, Hammerikaner.
posted by briank on Nov 5, 2002 - 8 comments

Post meh, discussion makes it worthwhile.

In the interest of having a positive example in MetaTalk (rare, I know), I put forth this example. I thought the phrasing of the original link was sub-standard, but after the first few comments the discussion was positive and, as so often happens here, a member with a more in-depth knowledge of the field helped the understanding of others.

I also thought it might be worth mentioning so that those who are upset by his politics and (debatable) trolling can see that fold_and_mutilate does contribute positively in other ways.

This is what MetaFilter should be like.

a truly outstanding thread. reminiscent of whatever 'metafilter golden age' era for which you pine. nearly all the discussion posts were well thought out, offered interesting perspectives gained through personal experience or outside reading; and many viewpoints were supported by unique and interesting off-site links. whether or not this topic grabbed your interest, this is the type of discussion we should always be striving towards. what can we do to encourage such behavior?

y2karl: informative and interesting

I just wanted to say y2karl has some great posts lately [1, 2 & 3].
I liked them not for the content, but for how he did it.

In order to understand his point I had to read the links. Not only that, the TITLE tags he put in there were wonderfully informative.
I've seen others do this from time to time, I just think it's quite nice.

I like the idea that to fully understand the thread people need to go and read something, learn something to actually make a comment that makes any sense.
After all, we are all here to learn something, are we not?
Anyone have any favorite threads, based on how they were done, not what they talk about?

Who's your MeFi crush?

Okay, there's been some negativity round these parts lately, so let's try this: Is there any MeFiosi upon whom you've developed a sort of (intellectual?) crush? (Potentially lame query, I know, but I figure it'll get some positive feedback going. We've spilled a lot of bytes talking about the people, or personae, we don't like, ad nauseam, so I figure the opposite is worth a shot. So shoot! Free love!)

successful posting of contentious material

Today's PreCrime post by grrarrgh00 is a great example of contentious material presented with balanced text, varied supporting links (with mouseovers!), and a meaty comment to start things on the write foot. Is this a good model given our recent debates over how to present controversial topics?

Thanks, Matt!

OK, either everyone has decided to take a day off of MeFi, or the new server is finally in place. Kudos to Matt (and the rest of the mefi crew), the site really smokes.

Mefi Poll on User Weblog

I absolutely adore long front page posts

For the record, I absolutely adore long front page posts that are three paragraphs long with more links than I'm ever gonna get around to clicking on. I just wanted to say that before some MeFi cop came in here reading the riot act. =) I cite this as an example of when it's okay to do that. Who's with me?

Nice way of handling a newbie.

A pat on the back, guys. Some positive feedback for once: veteran MeFites gently pointing out guidelines to a newby.

Shoutout: new member aeschenkarnos provides positive post

An articulate, insightful, on-target post by a brand new member of Metafilter. Just proving that the recent growth of the community can be positive, because it means even more intelligent voices with interesting things to say. More noise, but also more signal.

Post quality improving.

Am I the only one (and I am a longtime reader, albeit not poster - almost 2 years) who thinks the quality here has gotten BETTER? I've gotten so used to the complaints in MetaTalk about posting that recent content (with some exceptions) has been a nice surprise.
