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

Heartbreaking Translation into Spanish Needed

Post 307127 by generic230 deleted for the following reason: Heya, a "someone do this task for me" request like this isn't really appropriate for Ask MetaFilter, but it'd be okay to post it over on Jobs as a one-off gig. -- cortex

Post 307070 by Rosengeist deleted for the following reason: Hope there was some useful advice in here, but really, this is above the level of help Ask Me is reasonably able to provide, and stakes are too high for casual commenting. -- taz

Ride-sharing vehicles marked for safety? - uber lyft taxi

Post 307020 by systematize deleted for the following reason: Heya, a more focused question just about looking for statistics on traffic behavior could work okay but as is this is mostly an unanswerable "this situation is bothering me" sort of deal rather than a workable Ask MetaFilter question. -- cortex

Incredible girl in line at store - meeting

Post 306768 by amxr deleted for the following reason: Heya, this is a pretty chatfiltery "thoughts?" framing (which isn't really how AskMe is meant to work) and, I'm not sure if you're familiar with previous AskMes on the subject of chatting up women in public spaces, but this is unlikely to go the way you want it to. -- LobsterMitten

Post 306705 by Thella deleted for the following reason: Hey, sorry, but the combo of rather specific details about third parties, plus advice by proxy for second-hand related circumstances all make this not really great for Ask Metafilter. Perhaps a gift membership for your friend might be a way to cut through some of that. -- taz
