They said some very complementary things about our work, they saw very clearly how hard my partner and I worked to make our software work really well. They said it was "beyond user-friendly, it was joyous to use", which was really nice.
Since the release of comment upvotes and flagging. Just wondering if you get rep for upvoted comments?
Also wondering if upvoted comments have any effect on the comment sorting? And can you see your comment upvote number somewhere?
Edit - See the Stack Overflow blog post about comments.
I've done quite a bit of searching but don't see anything regarding it.
I am unable to place a bounty on my own, or anyone else's question here on meta.
I see the featured tab is still available, with featured (bounty) questions, so it doesn't look like bounty has been turned off here altogether.

What happens if a bounty question is
closed, or deleted as offensive?

There's some sentiment out there that tools like mod_security don't actually increase security at all. Sure, they do "block" common vectors, so they are not useless. But the thing is, the only way to secure code is to make the code secure. Everything else is just a band-aid. That's not to say...
