Is This Transparency? OP with very slim, one-year posting history asks a question about finding a good charity in AskMe, just prior to year-end tax-decision time. Newly registered responder posts a newly formed charity-aggregator/evaluator organization, without mentioning that he is, apparently, one of the two founders. Self-promotional setup leading to self-link? Or am I being too cynical?
Follow the link above to read an interesting account of these ivy-league hedge fund kids trying to game MetaFilter to their advantage. That, plus the fact that they used the same URL as that crappy health care gift card, means that if I had any extra money, I wouldn’t be sending it their way.
