Special Event: Urgent Site Fundraising Appeal: Metafilter Needs Immediate Help

THIS IS NOT A DRILL: METAFILTER IS OUT OF MONEY. In the past 18 months, Metafilter has spent $57k more than it has taken in. Each month saw expenses exceed revenue. . . .the site's cash reserves were siphoned to make up the shortfall. They are now gone. Monthly operating expenses are currently about $20k per month, or a little more. Monthly income is about $14k. We need to bring in an additional $7k/month just to keep the lights on. If you would consider giving or giving more, now is the time to do that. [more inside]

Special Event: 2022 Stanley Cup Playoffs 🏒 - Third Round

The second round of the playoffs is over and we're into the conference finals; the Western conference will be a high-stakes 🥩 battle of elite scoring talent, as Connor McDavid 🥇 turned from the best player in the world into one of the best players of all time with his Edmonton Oilers kicking out 🦵⛸ the Calgary Flames. They face a stacked and favoured Colorado Avalanche, where Nathan McKinnon 🍝 and Cale 🥬Makar scored some beautiful goals in a sometimes ugly (by which I mean racist) series against the St Louis Blues. In the East, it could be the matchup of the best two goaltenders 🥅 in the world. Tampa Bay's Andrei Vasilevskiy 🦁 led his team into a dominant four game 🧹of the Florida Panthers, the regular season winners. Meanwhile NY Rangers goalie Igor Shesterkin 🤴 slammed the 🚪 on the Carolina Hurricanes to turn the tables in game 7 after the home teams won the first 6 games. [more inside]

The second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs kicks off tonight! The two-time defending champion Tampa Bay Lightning take on the best team in the regular season, the Florida Panthers. The Battle of Florida is a repeat of last year's opening round, which featured some incredibly entertaining hockey.

Tomorrow night, the Carolina Hurricanes and their deep squad host the New York Rangers and the best goalie of the regular season, Igor Shesterkin. And in the final game, the first playoff Battle of Alberta since 1991 will be crazy; the Calgary Flames and the best line in hockey take on the Edmonton Oilers, who happen to have the best player in the sport, Connor McDavid.
