Post 280674 by DisreputableDog deleted for the following reason: Hey, sorry but there are some problems here. Reposting a photo from someone else and sharing info about them is not great, and, additionally, this is falls too much into the "do me a favor," or "do this task for me" that is over and above the more-okay "can you read the signature on this painting"-type request. -- taz

Post 280638 by sprockett deleted for the following reason: Hey sorry, there are several problems with this as an AskMe - (a) it's quasi-promotional and (b) seeking collaborators isn't something you can do on AskMe - maybe on Jobs? or on Projects if the site is fully developed enough -- LobsterMitten

Post 280621 by KinoAndHermes deleted for the following reason: Hey, sorry for the late delete here, but embedding a homophobic slur in the post text isn't workable on this site. Try again next week if you'd like, and let us know if you need help with the framing. -- taz

Shall I still use this person as a network/reference resource? - networking job interviews

Post 279827 by tnar23 deleted for the following reason: This question is far too long for the front page, sorry. A (very) short summary is basically the way to go -- there's always the "extended explanation" field for the detailed version. It does need to be more concrete though about what aspect exactly you want help with, and why you're asking Metafilter -- ending on "Any opinions" will probably not help you get very specific feedback. -- goodnewsfortheinsane


Do any "Western Bibles" give arguments?

Post 279763 by Eiwalker deleted for the following reason: Heya, it sounds like you're maybe looking for examples of a fairly specific kind of rhetorical/structural element in religious literature, but as framed here it's not really clear exactly what that is or why you're asking. Maybe try and reframe this with a clearer description of what you're looking for an maybe a couple of examples from non-Western religious works if that's what you're contrasting against for the purpose of the question? -- cortex

A question of class. How to respond when someone looks down on you - caregiver superiority

Post 279682 by BarcelonaRed deleted for the following reason: Hey, there, sorry this happened, but this seems like less a problem to be solved, and more like a discussion prompt (not the purpose of Ask Metafilter), or possible reader poll ("what do *you* think about caregivers"); additionally folks can't say what kind of person your vet really is. -- taz


Calling all residents of Dallas County - Texas Politics

Post 279644 by AlonzoMosleyFBI deleted for the following reason: Heya, unless you're actually specifically asking about something tied directly to that recent event (in which case that needs to be clearer), it seems like a really bad idea to hang an Ask Me off a really recent bad news sort of thing as a framing device. Get back to me real quick and we could bring this back with less complicated framing. -- cortex
