Your New Porn Star Name: Elementary School + Fave Soft Drink

Post 157107 by valkane deleted for the following reason: Hey, sorry, but a Mefi post needs to have a link to some particularly good interesting thing, and this is just a link to the entire run of Community. I get what you were going for with this but there's not enough there there for a Mefi post. -- LobsterMitten

The Queen is Dead, Long Live Bureaucratic Protocol

Post 157051 by firstbest deleted for the following reason: Hey sorry, this is interesting but I'm not sure what the linked site is (clickdimensions?), plus the misleading title is serving as an insta-derail; fine to repost if these problems can be resolved -- LobsterMitten

Trans activists, don't throw mad people under the bus.

Post 157016 by roomthreeseventeen deleted for the following reason: Eh, this seems like kind of a deep-in-the-weeds editorial, and the whole pitting-trans-activists-against-mental-illness-activists framing of it seems like sort of a needless fightstarter for a post about a couple of already complicated subjects. -- cortex

Investigative report on the closure of Toronto's Gender Identity Clinic

Post 156966 by PercussivePaul deleted for the following reason: Hey, this is a super highly charged topic that we discussed recently, and if we are going to reasonably cover it again, it needs to be a much more in-depth presentation. -- taz

No more nurseries?

Post 156936 by floweredfish deleted for the following reason: Heya, this sort of "and here's my opinion about it" rhetorical personal framing is pretty much a no go for MetaFilter posts. -- cortex

Post 156932 by marienbad deleted for the following reason: Ugh, that's awful but I'm also not sure a thread to say as much repeatedly is going to help anything. -- cortex

Yale Educator Recounts ‘Painful Experience’ of Halloween Email Furor

Post 156950 by shotgunbooty deleted for the following reason: She doesn't seem to have anything new to say on the events from last fall and her book doesn't seem to be about that; we had several lengthy threads about her/this and I don't know what's going to be helped by revisiting Christakis still not understanding why the students were protesting. -- LobsterMitten

Taste Sensation that's Not Sweeping the Nation

Post 156885 by valkane deleted for the following reason: Sorry for the delayed delete - having looked more closely at the links, this is actually pretty thin with basically one news article to go on. If this is a real thing, it'd probably go better with more in-depth resources for folks to talk about beyond the kind of news-of-the-weird angle. -- LobsterMitten

Maybe that boombox isn't so romantic, Lloyd Dobler

Post 156804 by Kitteh deleted for the following reason: That's an interesting result, but a short pop-sci news blurb about a study isn't great post material generally speaking. -- cortex

Bernie or Hillary?

Post 156822 by Chocolate Pickle deleted for the following reason: Sorry, this is pretty slight and probably better as a comment in one of the open election threads. -- LobsterMitten

Post 156741 by Greg Hullender deleted for the following reason: This doesn't actually have any content; it's just a note to go buy a membership and vote, which isn't a good metafilter post. -- Eyebrows McGee
