Favorites or Likes for comments?: Hey there old friends. I'm back lurking here. I'm even logged in, so I can see the (# new) thingy after the comments number. I don't have much to contribute, but 5 years of Facebooking have endeared to the simple "Like" action below each comment and I'm instinctly looking to click it when I read a comment that makes me chuckle. MetaFilter has a similar feature with their Favorites. Is this at all a possibility for SpoFi?

Expos fans on the run!: Three of my friends and I will be driving around the Great Lakes for a week, and going to at least one baseball game per day. We still love baseball, even though we got screwed over by Loria and Selig. If any local Spofites would like to join us either at the games or after, we'd certainly welcome them with open arms and some French love words. More inside.

Respect for the dead: the Josh Hancock thread has turned into a meta-discussion about what is acceptable discussion of a sports figure's recent death. Shouldn't we have this discussion here, instead?

Boston meetup?: I'm hopping on a busload of Habs fans Saturday morning. Destination: the Canadiens-Bruins game at Financial Institution Center. I have free time before and after the game. Any of you Boston Spofites up for a drink with a strapping young French Canadian lad? Manifest yourselves!

Banned topic proposal: I just want to bring up chicobang's suggestion for discussion outside of a specific thread. Player salaries and deservedness thereof: done to death on SpoFi?

Follow the link: this (soon to be deleted) discussion leaves me with the impression that not a lot of people actually read the linked pieces before commenting.

Numerous user profile page oddities... The link on "# comments in Locker Room" leads to a list of all user's comments, Locker Room and main Sportsfilter alike. The link on "# links in Locker Room" tries to lead to a page on, ending in a 404.

Fake tags trouble! I wanted to end my curling comment with a nice [/hissy fit]. (Replace the square brackets with angle brackets.) Each time I previewed it looked differently, and the actual post is ugly barfage. [more inside]
