Interesting how Meta spam usually takes some clues from the site: "weight loss meta", "muscle building tags", etc. Never on Drupal.
 
6:22 AM
Lol... stackoverflow.com/questions/26923757/… combined with the comment right after it is one of the most heartbreaking things I've ever seen on SO.

oh.. okay
 
@AnnaLear Can you please lock this post? I rejected 3 spam attempts on it in the last few minutes meta.stackexchange.com/review/suggested-edits/32478
 
I remember that question... it's the one that always attracts spam edit.
 
Yes, unfortunatey
Today, someone seems resolute to spam it
 
user259867
Or fortunately. You already know what to expect from it. And rejections feed spam blocker stronger when the post is a known target.
 
6:34 AM
@Rafflesiaarnoldii I highly doubt if that is working for this post
We are manually guarding it
 
user259867
I really should unhide the suggested edit indicator on Meta... To share the burden, so to speak.
 
yes, please unhide it....now cVplZ has gone to sleep, so nic and I are on guard....the post is in a vulnerable state
 
nuked it
 
@InfiniteRecursion Little harm in a spammy suggested edit. Looks like it stopped, at any rate. Funnily enough, that's probably the best path to those reviewer badges on meta anyway. :)

yes @inf, because this question asks for what the construct means, falling in the same scope of The SO Regex Reference.
 
@Unihedron ok :)
 
is that a new spam ring? :o
 
@InfiniteRecursion cvpls

we will clean them up
 
@AndrewT. flag/other linking to the search query?
 
@JanDvorak I'll try
 
please flag the ones on SO first - they are still alive stackoverflow.com/search?q=geolify

@AndrewT.: The page count is incorrect. There are just 12 answers.
 
@PatrickHofman :O
Nvm, just manual spam flag then
 
@InfiniteRecursion only one left!
all geolify on so gone
 
yay!
 
add geolify to Pham please @uni

8:50 AM
I was happy to see a +10 in the top bar, but it was just the rep returned from the downvoted spam answers :(
 
@PatrickHofman :)
 
don't downvote spam!
 
@PatrickHofman What a coincidence, I saw a +10 in the top bar after you said that, so I clicked to expect rep returned, but it was actually an upvote:
 
@InfiniteRecursion :)
 
8:51 AM
give him a break please...he found that spam
 
tftf
 
Why not?
 
@JanDvorak I thought that law was for questions only?
At least Community<> protected most of the questions now.
 
@Unihedron why?
 
Someone should just protect every Geolocation question on SO.
 
8:53 AM
or close
In the evening
 
@JanDvorak 'cuz when it goes to -5 too quickly it gets banished from the active tab too quickly, and less users will be able to see and spam-flag it
 
spam questions fall faster from the front page if they get downvoted...it reduces their chance to gather enough flags...that's why don't downvote question spam
 
@Unihedron also, downvotes dilute the information how many votes are there
 
Okay, spam questions, but answers?
 
@InfiniteRecursion under that logic we should be upvoting spam
 
8:54 AM
@JanDvorak does that matter? you gonna flag it regardless of how many votes there are
 
@JanDvorak Lol. Make it get on the Hot network list :)
 
@JanDvorak yes, the rep gained is lost when it gets deleted/nuked anyway
 
@Unihedron raise that on MSE
 
@JanDvorak It's a valid reason to NOT downvote spam, not a reason to UPVOTE spam
 
@InfiniteRecursion why not?
 
8:55 AM
not downvote != upvote
ok, wake up properly, then we will talk
 
indeed, but if we upvote spam, it will stay on the front page even longer
 
it's a valid and established logic not to downvote...how is that associated with upvoting?
 
meh, upvote and flag it as spam. when it's +6 (1k only), it will be gone (j/k)

@JanDvorak That's not it's logical conclusion, that's a reductio ad absurdum
 
@InfiniteRecursion might be, but where is the absurdity?
 
Reductio ad absurdum (Latin: "reduction to absurdity"; pl.: reductiones ad absurdum), also known as argumentum ad absurdum (Latin: argument to absurdity), is a common form of argument which seeks to demonstrate that a statement is true by showing that a false, untenable, or absurd result follows from its denial, or in turn to demonstrate that a statement is false by showing that a false, untenable, or absurd result follows from its acceptance. First recognized and studied in classical Greek philosophy (the Latin term derives from the Greek "εις άτοπον απαγωγή" or eis atopon apagoge, "reduction...

Don't downvote spam -> upvote spam is the absurd part
 
"don't downvote spam" is perfectly legit, but why is "upvote spam" so absurd?
 
-5 has visibility on front page, so no need to "upvote" it
 
9:06 AM
@JanDvorak I think she meant the arrow was an absurd deduction.
 
vv

Why is it an absurd deduction?
 
if -3 was the criteria for front page visibility, I would see some sense in your upvoting logic to keep it on the front page
 
9:07 AM
The threshold is -4, not -5

not downvote != upvote
 
@JanDvorak because I said nothing about upvotes! Do you not realize that downvotes and upvotes are two different actions?
 
@InfiniteRecursion I do. "don't do anything" sits quite in the middle between "downvote" and "upvote"
 
Actually Jan, I will stop typing, am having a perfect day....don't want to get into an absurd discussion now :D
 
@InfiniteRecursion If you want a different kind of absurdity, look up "too many cooks"
 
9:11 AM
If I want any kind of absurdity, I will look for "Jan Dvorak"
:D
 
/me looks up "asdfghjkl"
 
@InfiniteRecursion you won't find anything that way
 
@Unihedron 404\
 
@JanDvorak will look for "Jan Dvorak", not look up
 
9:14 AM
Umm, don't look up "Jan Dvorak"
(at least not on Google)
 
If someone looks "for" you, they will look in the tavern...Google is for looking "up" for words
 
Not the kind of spam you see every day
 
It's the kind of "they're wasting their time" spam.

@cVplZ Yes, I agree. Totally different questions, not dupes.
Are you allowed to post images on Area 51 questions?
If so, I suggest you add a few pictures to indicate booby is a real exotic animal
someone might be thinking you are trolling and the question is about bluefeet's beautiful feet
 
Haay, my question is at -2. Though I do agree it's kind of stupid.
 
area51 post gathering so many downvotes so fast does seem strange...so add some proof that it's a valid question
 
@InfiniteRecursion never thought about her feet before, but i bet she's wears blue socks a lot
 
9:29 AM
@Unihedron maybe because all those who committed to your proposal are taverners...who only downvote...they have never used the upvote feature on SE

Well, upvoted your meta answer @LightnessRacesinOrbit. I'm very tempted to contribute to the discussion there, but I don't really participate on the site. So let's not.
 
Yeah I'm kinda wishing I hadn't
 
10:47 AM
Hmm, the fields I've been in around ELU was "Please gimme the word", so I don't really know that much. But your point was critical, +1'd
 
Your edit was correct, +1'd
 
@Unihedron The irony is that the question in question (lol) was "please gimme the word", too. I don't see how a TV essay could be defensible here but this guy doesn't seem to be alone. It's weird.
So apparently ELU is developing a "we're special" complex just like MathOverflow :( Can't be a good sign
 
@LightnessRacesinOrbit gah, couldn't help myself.
Anyway, back to writing specs.
 
special as in "special abilities", or as in "special school"?

Hi there. My Review Suggested Edits history shows that I have approved 266 edit suggestions and rejected 5 edit suggestions. But I have reviewed 381 suggested edits.
Is this happening to anyone else ?

Spam nuking is so effective I barely ever see any, so I have no idea how common it is
 
@milz I notice when I Approve and Edit, sometimes it shows 5 approves and 0 rejects, with correct total displayed. It fixes itself when "just now" goes away.
