Q: Are questions about cartoons on-topic?

Niall C.We've had a couple of questions recently about identifying plants from cartoons: What is this carnivorous plant? What is the flower just above the groom's left breast? Are these questions on-topic?

@Braiam ?
@Braiam What kind of online homework program is that?
@Frank I'm glad people haven't been posting these cartoon ID questions.
@Frank that's good to know, so the bark really does kinda act like clothing in a way
12:08 AM
@lostsock Yup. Short lecture , though, sorry to disappoint.
@CareBear a very bad one
@Braiam Well I can see that. I wanted to know the brand, so that I'll avoid it myself. Do you have any idea of why it rejected the answer? Something with "sec" not entered correctly, e.g., in keyed in instead of picked from the palette?

@Braiam It's unfortunately a very common program in school. I forget the name of it though
@Braiam Found it via Google image search: it's MyMathLab, and this screenshot was big on reddit back in the day.
12:32 AM
My new sock on GL so that I can see how it looks to new users. :P
@CareBear Yeah... MyMathLab is very annoying.

How did seth write his name upside down?
@Frank He's smart.
@hichris123 But how is it done?
@hichris123 I saw that, but it wouldn't work in my username thingy.
@hichris123 I mean J. Musser
There was an error.
@Frank Ah, hmm... maybe it doesn't like the period? Or the space?
Okay, that's probably it.
It was the period.
@hichris123 thnx
No problem. :)
Oh look! An evil person on the shelf!

I should edit 7 posts so I can flag spam twice.;]
@Frank ... eh, some might see that as an abuse of the system.
@hichris123 Ah?
@hichris123 Yeah, kind of a dumb joke.
@hichris123 That would be abuse of the system.

@Inf @Pro It seems that they misspelled supplement as supplyment.
Which pronoun do we use to refer spammers?

@Unihedron: "they" is a safe pronoun for spammers. "Those bastards" probably also works.

@InfiniteRecursion I think the question is itself not related to programming
@DroidDev I feel the same, so I have cv'ed it
@InfiniteRecursion flagged
@InfiniteRecursion what should I flag it for?
@DroidDev off-topic -> simple typo?
@DroidDev The question was caused by a problem that can no longer be reproduced (the answer indicates it was a typo by OP)
A: What is a good resource to brush up on classes in python?

zhaoyPlease see the reason the moderators gave for closing the question.

@InfiniteRecursion erm, the upvotes were for the original answer before edited?

Does this count as serial downvoting?
@HashemQolami it should be detected by the system, yeah.

Might @HashemQolami. If you are correct. And if so, the system will catch it

I am not sure, but isn't this question off-topic?
yet again??
this guy asked the verbatim same question on Codereview..
I told him "you can't be here, and SO won't take your question, because it doesn't meet their quality standard..."
--> verbatim repost + small comment
and now self-deleted again...
and his meta-questions aren't shedding any good light on him either..
He's digging himself the hole.

if anyone suggests migrating or crossposting to CR, I'll ... try to be polite .....
@Vogel612'sShadow isn't it CR-worthy?
It's pseudocode..
@Vogel612'sShadow lol, I am feeling tempted to suggest it :D
and the while (true) e.printStacktrace() makes it slightly broken, too
@InfiniteRecursion may I politely remind you of the standard migration rules and the cr help-center then?
@JanDvorak If it weren't pseudocode and not broken it would be good to go, though...
but this guy would die a thousand deaths...
I've once spent 5 hours answering a single question on CR
11:28 AM
@Vogel612'sShadow thanks
@Unihedron put it this way 1 == "1" ~ true; 1 != "1" ~ false; 1 === "1" ~ false; 1 !== "1" ~ true
If your code weren't pseudocode and not broken, it might be better suited for code review. You can try fixing it and posting the question there. Please make sure you read the code review help section to see what kind of questions can be asked there before posting. — Infinite Recursion 22 secs ago

btw, someone in CR chat said, this question might be a better fit for SO, if it had an introductory paragraph...

I like meta spam cause I can flag and dv.

@Frank don't downvote spam

Any mod around? Did the deletion of this answer get rid of the flag I cast? Or was it still handled?
2:44 PM
@Bart well is it marked helpful?
then it's considered handled....
"considered" ...
It was an "other" type flag
So did a mod handle it, or did the system say "probably the flag is handled now"
I've had an active flag after an answer was deleted, so I'm not sure.
It's best to ask a mod if you don't see relevant meta posts.
Ah, timestamp on the flag handling suggests it happened after deletion. So I guess it got handled by a mod
When in doubt, hover.

When in doubt flag it out?
