Thanks for the suggestions. To clarify, I had a bookmark saved in my phone's browser that always worked, and I noticed about the end of last week that the bookmark started sending me to the metafilter.com homepage. When physically typing the address I got the same result.
However, I just cleared all the browser cache, and tried again, and it worked. So, problem solved, I just do not know why the previous link stopped working, unless the address changed when the server moved. In any event, it is a non issue for me now.
Thank you for putting together a great site, and for having excellent customer service!
