talkin' rockin' poffin boffin

This is a shoutout to poffin boffin, who in the last month has made 23 posts on the general topic of Indigenous Peoples, ranging from herring fisheries to sign languages to neologisms to cuisine to high steelworkers. Some of these posts didn't get many comments, but collectively they are an admirable corpus on an important topic.

Curiosity about a deletion

Over in the Marc Driscoll thread, I made a comment that implied I was waiting for another member to appear before commenting. My intent was to reference a history of interesting discussions we've had about the topic, but I can see that it might've been misunderstood as a cheap shot, implying that I wanted to make fun of that person. The comment was deleted, and while I'm not terribly worked up over it I'm curious. Are there any good rules of thumb about shout-outs to other MeFi folks in threads they might be interested in? Are there good ways to reference pet topics without sounding like you're bagging on someone?

The sport of kings

This week on Slate's Hang Up and Listen podcast, hosts Josh Levin and Mike Pesca debate what is and isn't a sport.
Pesca: If you wanted to have a thumb-wrestling league, and you wanted to have real criteria, and you wanted to rank people on the internet, then it could be a sport tomorrow.
Levin (laughing): Anything that you rank people on the internet is a sport.
Pesca: Metafilter is a sport.
(Relevant portion at the 29-minute mark.)

We have some cool people at MeFi

This post is cool, not just because of the answers, but more even more because it shows how very diverse the membership of Metafilter is. [more inside]

Just want to say . . .

thanks to the mefi community for a good day of links . . . where else can I shoot the s- about gay marriage, aerodynamics, fluid simulations, Safari & the iPhone, and someone slagging on liberals, all on one page :)

New York Meetup

what 151 means is that there was a fair amount of drinking.
