A functioning online community needs a separate place to discuss that community. Specific topic discussions should not be polluted by metadiscussions about how the site works.

Typophile needs to clone what MetaFilter does and start a separate forum called MetaPhile. It is there that site policy and the specifics of individual posts can be discussed. If you have a concern about a post in one of the other forums, start a new post in MetaPhile to talk about it.

In particular, posts about new site features should not be buried in somebody’s “blog,” a feature this site never needed.
