The beast that is Everything2 makes for good copy. The following are all nodes about E2 that at one time have been 'Cooled' by an Editor or god on E2. They comprise about ten percent of nodes on the Page of Cool. You can find more information about the Page of Cool at As Cool As It Gets.

Disclaimer: Every care has been taken to preserve these nodes, but some of these nodes may no longer exist, or in the case of superdocs not 'working'. (a struckthru hardlink means the node no longer exists. see also E2 FAQ: When is it okay to node about noding?) Also, the Cooling of nodes do not necessarily mean the administration think they are Cool.

Update, September 2004: The number of specific E2 related nodes cooled by Editors has decreased significantly in the past year. Most of those added below were Quest related. Additionally, many of the 'humourous' nodes, as well as general conjecture and idea positing nodes on noding, were removed last year, as the vast amount of hardlinks with a strikethrough signifies. There are also many nodes now no longer cooled, and these are also noted. I will leave all the struckthrough and uncooled nodes in until another update.

•ideas masquerading under insulting softlink titles

One activity on E2 is softlinking titles of other nodes as commentary. Most of the time these are insulting to the user linked to, and hilarious to the one making the link. Insulting softlinks, or softlinks as commentary, are the last weapon of the 'anonymous coward'. Virtual graffiti. Instead of /msging the author, faults are displayed for future readers' perusal. Often, the node linked has writeups containing useful or humourous commentary on attitudes and procedures here, which is why they've reached the Page of Cool
