an Israeli point of view - palestine

Post 315820 by stevedawg deleted for the following reason: This might work better if you narrow down what you're looking for as much as possible: is it books, articles, something else? It's worth revisiting the FAQ on this and make it more specific if you want to have a do-over. -- goodnewsfortheinsane

Golem “friend”

Post 315164 by leotrotsky deleted for the following reason: Heya, if this is a question about a comment on MetaFilter, post this to MetaTalk; if it's more general, drop me a line real quick with slightly more detail in the framing so it's clear to people sort of where to start looking and that it's not a metatalk question. -- cortex

Kramer (vs Kramer) me. - Parents divorce custody

Post 314621 by Armed Only With Hubris deleted for the following reason: Heya, unless there's an actual personal context grounding this (in which case that would need to be clear in the framing of the question so folks can work with the actual details of a concrete predicament) this is pretty heavily into chatfilter territory on a pretty fraught topic. -- cortex

What makes you stay committed? - relationships

Post 314568 by miaow deleted for the following reason: Heya, this is way too broadly framed to really work; if you have a specific concern/challenge in your own relationship, asking for advice or experiences tied to that would be okay, but just shotgunning the general idea of commitment without a clear context is too chatty. -- cortex

Post 314465 by Trusted Sidekick deleted for the following reason: Ask me doesnt do follow ups like this, and it's bad form to try to "bump" your post; you can ask in your original post if people have more thoughts. -- LobsterMitten

WebSummit - what's it good for? - react entrepreneur lisbon

Post 314406 by bendy deleted for the following reason: Sorry, I'm confident it's unintended, but with the links and non-specific framing of the question, this really seems more like a promotion for this event. If you'd like to edit to ask a much more specific question about how you should present your pitch or whatever, please get in touch with us. -- taz

Looking for a professional editor, proofreader, writer

Post 314279 by meg_s98 deleted for the following reason: Heya, this sort of specific looking-for-a-person-to-hire thing isn't a good fit for Ask MetaFilter. If you are looking for more general how-to-look resources/guidances, reframing and trying again along those lines would be okay; otherwise, for the job listing aspect itself, it'd be okay to make a post instead over on MeFi Jobs. -- cortex

What would the correlation be, if any? classical & opperant conditioning

Post 314045 by soooo deleted for the following reason: It feels like this is a question with some sort of specific context that'd make it more possible for folks to answer, but that's not in the question so this just feels like a sort of odd hypothetical. -- cortex

Excellent men much rarer than women? - dating

Post 313312 by anonymous deleted for the following reason: Eh, in retrospect I approved this looking too hard for the implied tactical/strategic dating advice question but I think that as framed it is landing too squarely in chatty territory. Asker, a rewrite that's focused more on "how can I deal with this" and less on "is this how things are yes/no" could work if you want to give it another shot in the near future. -- cortex
