I have no idea what that MetaFilter page is supposed to show.

Granted my perusal was brief, but I have no idea what value MetaFiler provides. Is the what the Twitter is like? If so, are they both about to become passe?

To me MetaFilter looks and sounds like a God Damn mess.

About MetafilterMetafilter is a weblog that anyone can contribute a link or a comment to. A typical weblog is one person posting their thoughts on the unique things they find on the web. This website exists to break down the barriers between people, to extend a weblog beyond just one person, and to foster discussion among its members.

If you're new to the site, I'd suggest taking a look around, checking out the archives, and getting a feel for the place. You might also consider registering as a member. Members can post comments, customize the look and behavior of the site.

After becoming a member, check out some of the links and think about leaving a comment or two. If you stick around for a while, you'll get a feel for what types of things are posted as links, and if you find something amazing and/or enlightening, please post it.

The privilege of posting links to main page comes after posting a few comments and being a member for at least a week. This lag is built in to allow new members to get used to the place and to understand what other members consider good links. With the current number of members, even if fewer than 1% of the total membership post a link each day, it's far too many links to take in. Please take extra special care when selecting a link for the front page. To get an idea of what constitutes a good link, take a look at the link guidelines, to hear some philosophies guiding the site and community, check out the new user message.

P.S. Anybody else notice that, starting today, blogger (or at least Althouse's) comment section is not respecting select "carriage returns" following italicized text?

I've noticed it on other commenters' comments as well, especially after cut and paste text is italicized.

It has been that way for a couple of days and it is profoundly irritating. A fix is to put the carriage return in before the closed italics tag.
