Post 308271 by katrielalex deleted for the following reason: Sorry, but this is more of a chat/discussion framing, with "here are my thoughts"; if you want to have a conversation, it would be better to do it over here, where the discussion is underway and you can ask people what they think and engage the answers. -- taz

How do I target the right consumer for high-end furniture? - modern marketing audience

Post 307985 by andrewsa deleted for the following reason: As framed this comes across almost as an ad, which is a no-go on AskMetafilter. If you just want to ask about where to place ads for high-end furniture, hit the contact form in the next hour or so for a quick edit. -- LobsterMitten

Looking for professional academic proofreading - editing humanities publishing

Post 307708 by washburn deleted for the following reason: Heya - it's fine to ask for recommendations. But this reads like a job ad (seeking a Mefite to do the job), which should actually go over on Jobs instead. If you'd like to revise this into a briefer, more askme-suitable version let me know in the next hour or so. -- LobsterMitten

Post 307254 by ciaobonjour deleted for the following reason: Nixed a link to the survey already, but honestly even without it this feels too much like an ad for the survey/company than a workable question. If this is something you need help with you need to find a way that is far more clearly non-promotional for it to fly. -- cortex

How do you change the world? - ethical difference

Post 307233 by inner_frustration deleted for the following reason: Heya, this is basically chatfilter, where you're setting up an impossible task, asking how people can make change but ruling out every way people can actually make change -- it sounds like you mainly want to talk about how these worries are very big, which is totally fair, but AskMe's not the place. -- LobsterMitten
