Sometimes you need a little device to help your memory. Like "my very educated mother just served us nine pumpkins." Or "I before E except after C." Today, Ruby_de_la_Booby explains how to treat excrement:

If it's yellow, leave it mellow.

If it's brown, flush it down.

If it's Rand, face to hand.

Thanks, Ruby!

As you've probably noticed, we're changing the Comment of the Day format a bit. From now on we'll only be highlighting one comment per day, so that user can claim all the bragging rights. We'd still like you to submit nominations to the Comment of the Day tag page. Just send the outstanding comment's URL and tag your nomination #cotd. (Replying to a comment with "#cotd" does not work.)

Use #trollpatrol to report comments that you feel the editors/mods should be aware of. Try not to respond to/approve/promote trollish comments in the threads — instead, just post the comment on the #trollpatrol page, the same way you'd post a comment on #groupthink or on the #cotd page, and the editors/mods will take care of it.

For meetups, use the meetup tag page!
