Mefites are a smart bunch, but no one is perfect. Tell us, what is the wrongest comment you've made here?

Inspired by this comment:
Here is possibly my wrongest comment ever

What do you feel uncomfortable about saying here?

In an ongoing thread a user volunteers that this has become an uncomfortable place to state certain, really, not all that weird ideas. What, if anything, are you afraid to say here? I pose this not to request debate on any issues that might arise, but to enumerate those things some of us might be afraid to even bring up. Because I think most of us were attracted to this place by the promise of free and open discussion. And it seems like the discussion isn't quite as free or open as it may have once been.

What if the answer is wrong?

I don't know for sure, but I think an answer to a question on AskMe is wrong. Do I ask about it there or here? [more inside]

This person in the youtube videos does not need any more free publicity

Doing sickening things to your own body to earn revenue by Youtube page-views/ad-clicks is not something that needs to be promoted with its own post on MeFi.

Joined at the typo

The premise of this FPP was pretty much debunked in the comments. Time for a do-over? [more inside]

MeTa Culpa

We love predictions. Especially looking back on predictions that have since been proven incorrect. I was thinking about the fact that a while back I predicted a certain lots-of-babies-having couple would stay together when they have spectacularly broken up and then I thought that a website full of pompous know-it-alls like us should be able to point to a bunch of predictions that we made in years past with the kind of confidence and assurance only an internet expert can muster that have been proven completely wrong. "By 2010 cloned dinosaurs will be common house pets." or "After the Peak Oil riots of 2009 we will all be living in igloos made of dead cloned dinosaur house pets." That kind of thing. So, if you please, show me your Metafilter comment wrongness. [more inside]

0 users marked this as a favorite

When I click on 'popular favorites', the number of favorites for each post is consistently wrong. I think the number I see corresponds with how many favorites the post had when I last clicked it. This question feels familiar to me - I think this has been discussed here before - but as I mentioned earlier, I have a difficult time searching for stuff here. If you want to point me to a previous discussion on this, feel free. Thanks.

Not colorblind-ist!

I thought I was posting a question on AskMe, instead I posted it to the blue. Can my question be moved? Pretty please?
