@Sam wonders if that room is against the TOS.. not discriminate against **age**/race/etc , except for people under 13, we have to legally discriminate against them.

@ProgramFOX Why not?
@Unihedron That's not a good title. Let me find the Meta question about that.
A: How do I write a good title?

Mark Harrison1. Make the topic stand out. The purpose of a title is to attract people interested in your topic or who can give you an answer. People scan web pages quickly. Make it easy for them to notice your question. Some people read via the RSS feed (Stack Overflow example), so they don't see tags. 2. K...

Oh. You write one then.
Changing "How to interrupt" into "Interrupting" made it better.

As if the smoke smell in the bathroom isn't enough, now there's smoke smell in the whole apartment now. IDK, smells weird. Fire department come and I go to Mc Donald's.
Probably a cigarette.
For the bathroom, yes. By "smoke in the whole apartment", I meant the whole 4th floor, which means a larger fire. Like plastic or something by the awful smell.
Maybe someone was using a hair dryer, and forgot to take of their plastic hat?

Hey guys. Does anyone have any advice/link to a meta question on answers copied fully from a 3rd party site? Found an answer (stackoverflow.com/a/26563480/3005188) which seems to just be a code block that is copied from another site, the author attributed it though. What do!?
@Ffisegydd IIRC it's okay as long as it has attribution. Gimme a sec, though.
Q: Plagiarism should be addressed specifically in the FAQ

PëkkaRecent cases of wholesale plagiarism like the four instances collected in this question (one, two, three, four) make me think, maybe there should be a clear policy on plagiarism in place in the FAQ?

Now I know why so many users have glasses as avatars, they stole Bart's pictures!
I'm pretty sure that them being on Flickr does not make them copyright free. Although they might have a CC license. All my photos on Flickr are explicitly copyrighted for example. I seriously don't mean to rain on your lovely cat-parade, but having had my fair share of photographs stolen from me, I tend to be fairly careful about this stuff. — Bart Jun 6 '12 at 7:42

@Frank That's true for most of us, we have no idea about the sites we have accounts on ;)
I have no idea about Drupal
3:39 PM
@Frank Programming puzzles are puzzles solved by writing programs. Code golf is a programming puzzle that involves making your code as short as possible.
But I have an account, and someday I may get a fanatic gold badge coz I visit Drupal everyday to flag spam :)
@InfiniteRecursion Drupal gets a LOT of spam. For such a small site, anyway.
@InfiniteRecursion Like bjb, who has an account on GL, and has upvoted my answers without understanding them first.
@Frank Yes, they get so much spam that all of us will soon be Drupal fanatics, officially.
