Full stop the "full stop"?

I've noticed a recently trend recently where people use the phrase "full stop" to cut off a line of thinking they disagree with. I'm wondering what other people think about this. [more inside]

I bet you have a very funny reply to this topic that involves an emoticon

Is it just me, or are more people using emoticons in comments than a year or so ago? [more inside]

A mixed blessing, perhaps

Apart from the 'Obama proposes cuts to SS' thread around the start of the month, there hasn't been much in the way of current-event political threads recently, despite a lot of stuff happening around the world (budget crisis in the U.S., and Murdoch in the U.K.) It seems to me that news has occurred in both of these cases which could be thread worthy, and since I usually value political discussion I've been missing their presence on the front page. Have they been made, and then deleted, or is there some sort of sub-conscious urge not to discuss politics right now? [more inside]

Why doesn't matthowie have a $200M valuation?

Why is MeFi not part of the social news site boom? Digg, reddit, newsvine, and others are the lucrative hot trend, but MeFi seems to do the same thing better (no Ron Paul spam), smarter, and for longer, and we even have favorites, for those who want voting-like capabilities. So why is MeFi not included with these young whippersnappers? And why are they not learning from MeFi's evolved model of light moderation, talk pages, and strong self-policing?

Are you feeling a little randy?

I count 7 sex-related questions on askme today. What's up with that? Desirous of titillation, I frequently check the 'sex' tag for askme. For weeks it's been fairly devoid of new questions. Then, bam, today... everybody wants laid. Is it seasonal? Or is it just folks who're triggered to write a sex question by seeing one earlier?

Images at MeFi

Images in thread posts seem to be on the rise. They used to be rather pleasantly nonexistent, and I was under the impression that they were traditionally frowned on here.

So is this the new trend in Metatalk?

So is this the new trend in Metatalk? Multiple postings on the same subject (3 on Steven's mating call; 2 on the Rorschach applet...so far.)? Are we *TRYING* to make people feel bad here, or just trying raise their inferiority complex a notch?
