Better way of tracking threads that aren't favorites

Pony request: Can we have temporary favorites? There are often threads I want to follow, but not make favorites, but if I make them a favorite, then I have delete from my favorites later on. This gets to be a chore when there's a lot of interesting stuff. Yes, there's the My comments page, but I find it useless, as it only tracks the last ten comments made to the thread, as opposed to only new comments since I last read the thread and it tracks threads I've commented on. With temporary favorites, I could say "watch this thread for x amount of time". Then if there was a page of just these temp favorites, it make it easy to keep tabs on threads that interest me. Or basically, just a better way of keeping tabs on threads the user finds interesting without having to make them favorites, which seem like a more permanent marker.

Pony: temporary comment editing

Temporary comment editing?
I'm sure this has been brought up before but......It would be nice to be able to edit one's comments for a short period after posting. Not for very long, obviously, but long enough to fix glaring errors or spelling mistakes.

Metafilter ranks third when using 'weblog' as a search term in Google at the moment. Worth celebrating?

Pony request for impermanent in-thread private messages

In light of recent discussions about hostility on MetaFilter, could it be helped by the ability to post a private message in a thread that disappears after a few weeks?
