What can I do to stop Trump this week? (1/15-1/22) - protest

Post 304856 by benadryl deleted for the following reason: This kind of "tell me what to do" on such a broad topic doesn't work very well at Ask, sorry. -- Eyebrows McGee

FBI procedures - WRITER AUTHOR RESEARCH

Post 304843 by ergoguru deleted for the following reason: Heya, sorry, AskMe isn't a place to solicit favors or find a person to do a job -- if you're mainly looking for someone to consult with, better to post this in Jobs. If there are some specific example procedures/jargon/situations/etc you want to check in a public thread on AskMe, reach us at the contact form in the next hour or so and we can edit the question to include those. -- LobsterMitten

How to deal with vegan friends who lean militant - diet meat

Post 304833 by a knot unknown deleted for the following reason: Sorry, but this is really more of a rant-type complaint for discussion (about a topic people *love* to fight about) than a direct, clear "how do I solve X problem" -- and blanket generalizations make that worse in terms of trying to avoid the thread becoming chat/debate/fight-filter. This really, really needs different framing if it's going to work as a solvable question here. -- taz

Post 304730 by OmieWise deleted for the following reason: Heya, the question is kind of unclear as written and seems to be leading people into a range of seemingly-unhelpful (?) chatty directions; contact us in the next hour or so if you'd like to start fresh with a rewritten version. -- LobsterMitten

Post 304543 by The Pluto Gangsta deleted for the following reason: Heya, Ask isn't for requesting that folks do a task for you; if you want to set this up as a wee gig over on Jobs instead, that'd be okay. Hit up the contact form if you have any questions. -- cortex

Recent post on a missing decade? - 1980s 1990s nDecade

Post 304544 by DrAstroZoom deleted for the following reason: Heya, this is a totally okay thing to ask but it's in the wrong place; instead of Ask MetaFilter, questions about stuff on the site itself etc. should be posted on MetaTalk. Go ahead and repost this over there whenever you like. -- cortex

Post 304350 by flyingfork deleted for the following reason: Hey, sorry, but "tell personal anecdotes about other people's private medical histories" isn't a good post for Ask Metafilter.
