What's the Deal with Comments "Metafilter: [succinct comment]

Every so often in a thread, somebody will post a comment consisting of Metafilter: [clip from a previous comment] that is sort of summing up a Metafilter sort of attitude. They're usually amusing. However, I can discern no pattern. Different members do it. Are these archived anywhere? Is there a rhyme or reason to them? Can anyone do them?

Metafilter: A Collection of Taglines

Back in 2007, cortex put together a list of the taglines created on the blue and the grey. They're ripe with phrases that could be adapted for use on signs at the Sanity/Fear rally this weekend. Can these lists be updated so we can see the more current taglines?

Best Tagline Contest

Can we have an end of year competition for the best "Metafilter: Spoof tagline" comments? (e.g. MetaFilter: Squirrels, jesus, orange juice, or whatever.). It could link to lots of good threads, with the winner being decided by whoever gets the most favourites. My suggestion for a prize would be the magic ability to turn on img tags for a single unannounced 24 hour period of the winner's choosing, anytime in the next 12 months.

Metafilter: We Love Taglines!

Where did the taglines go?

"Self-policing since 1999" up on the top left; gone the way of the dodo. Policy change or logo oversight?

Call for taglines being collected and posted somewhere

You know what someone more clever than me should do? They should cull all the " Metafilter: (insert quip here)" 's from the site that are found in so many posts. It'd be fun just to have them all, particularly out of context of the original thread. Then maybe another clever person could make a little randomizer java applet or firefox widget to make them appear on the top of the blue. That'd be nifty.

What are your favorite MeFi taglines?

MetaFilter: Something more than an infantile masturbatory impulse.
wait, maybe Metafilter: No good can come of a thread like this.
perhaps MetaFilter: Flag it and move on...
how about Metafilter: It's a big ball of problems apart from one user with question marks.
I know, Metafilter: This post, it vibrates?
That's it. I give. What are your favorite MeFi taglines?

Taglines and Slogans

Is there a way to see an aggregate of all the silly one-liners where someone takes a comment from higher up in a thread and posts "Metafilter: Blah blah blah blah"? I tried the search page with the query "metafilter:" but it just dropped the colon and returned everything that had the word metafilter in it. This is probably a futile request but I thought maybe someone either had a hack or was collecting them offline somewhere for his/her own amusement.

Updated Slogans

Metafilter: the plastic.com it's OK to like.

It seems like metafilter has had the same few slogans on the main page for a long time. People always post funny suggestions for mefi taglines in the the threads, but they're never adopted.

My request: Matt, geton the ball and and some new taglines.

Metafilter: funny tag lines

"self-policing since 1999"
Has anyone else noticed all the funny tag lines floating around MetaTalk threads lately? I've collected a few, but there must be more, my favorite:
MetaFilter: the preview box is full of lies.

Best Tagline Suggestions

Riffola: "I think that line should be on the new MeFi tee :)"

It seems like just about every thread someone has a new suggestion for a MeFi tagline or tee-shirt (and yes, I could have added a memepool style link to one with every word there). Anyway, why not vent the best ones here? Or do they all not-ready for prime-time, appearing once in a thread and disappearing forever?

Suggest some taglines

no one requested it, but I always wanted to do random images on the main page. The following image shows all the current taglines that popup randomly. They're not all gold, but some of them will be around forever (especially the crack one). Can you think of others? Go ahead and suggest one.

MetaFilter Tagline T-shirts

I've been thinking of doing some MetaFilter t-shirts for a while now, just for shits and giggles (and to give away to frequent and eloquent posters to MetaFilter), but I need a slogan on the front or back. Anyone got any ideas? "It's your web, log it" is pretty lame. Can anyone think of something better?
