Actually if you look at the broken post, the guy is trying to stuff a link to, some oddball myspace site. Were they trying to hide the link with CSS?

My post didn't break the page, the guy before me's did.

BlueTrain, I've never met and seldom emailed with anyone at Shift. I have no idea where their admiration of my work came from, but they do seem to follow everything I do (they mentioned me as the designer of the Creative Commons site). I think they glommed onto MetaFilter quite a while ago and used it for finding story leads and links for their shift list, and when I linked back to them one day, they probably got some traffic out of it.

yeah, I just need to add the flag to filter out the hidden posts.

That's the plan. Footballs, baseballs, golfballs, hockey pucks, basketballs, bowling balls, etc, all serving in the "o" position.

Actually, it was a stupid post and I'd love to delete it, but I don't want to send the message that "take it to sportsfilter" is the right one, because I don't think it is. I'm trying to figure out a way to openly promote sportsfilter on metafilter as an additional community, and not a sub-section or a place where sports news must go from now on. It's touchy, and I hope people don't post things like "this would be good for sportsfilter too" because it just leads to the unwanted conclusion (that sports don't belong on metafilter). If you would like a sportsmined person at metafilter to know about this site, email them instead.

I just need to add a directive that says "where not trashed" to the "grab all posts" db query. Thanks for the bug catch.

we can change category names easily, in case any admins were wondering. A motorsport category was considered at the start, but I think we agreed to keep things small at first and add as necessary.

I forgot to add /lockerroom/ to the permalink timestamp on locker room posts. Will do.
