sexist post
A: Why does the C++ standard's index have this entry for "undefined behavior [sic]"?

Lightness Races in OrbitThe boys over at std-discussion seem to agree that this is just an editorial issue. I have therefore raised it as such and it is now draft issue 409 on github.

@Rafflesiaarnoldii nope. They actually prevent it from getting kicked out of the LQP queue (every extra flag requires an extra looks ok IIRC)
someone care to correct this user? I seem to have gotten -1 b.c this mis-info
NAA flags are handled exclusively by the mods. They do not get put in the LQRQ. You are thinking of VLQ flags. — iCodez 3 mins ago

@hichris123 Thanks for correction. I stole it to post an answer.
@Rafflesiaarnoldii np. ;)

Yay, more rep! Oops.

@Rafflesiaarnoldii -1 to counter. ;P
@JasonC That's very cult-like. Maybe someone/I should run some queries on these users to see if we can find anything of interest. oh nm, it's nothing interesting meta.stackexchange.com/a/118649/244519 :(
@LightnessRacesinOrbit It does characterize the whole forum as male, though. Which I know isn't what you meant, but it comes off that way. So I edited.
Creative username.
@hichris123 Meh, seems pointless.
It's like going to target and shouting at the uneducated minimum-wage workers about how there's a "boy's" clothing section.
It no make senses
@bjb568 I find it more offensive that you called them uneducated
Well, there ya go.
12:43 AM
@bjb568 I'm confused how this relates...?
It doesn't.
Seriously? Isn't there something better to do than to nit over the use of a single word on some C++ question?
Did I get the Lounge to hound me now? ;)
@Mysticial How about this: it's one word. I edited. Time to move on?
@bjb568 Were you going to have several textareas in DD question-posting interface?
@Rafflesiaarnoldii Yeah.
12:54 AM
I think I don't like the idea. I have just finished submitting a letter of recommendation with 5 of those. Already had it written in a coherent way, and then the form forced me to tear it into fragments.

I wish the internet would just stop with the whole thing with overreacting and overemphasizing sexism…
Not that it's a good thing, but whatever dudes, in most cases.
@bjb568 But then people wouldn't have a club to be in, and what's the point of that?
Good point.

But I wished feminazis and feminists and anti-feminists would be presented and accepted in a spectrum. There's a reasonable mid point in everything, of course.

Trees are plants. Frank and I are in the same boat.

Hmm, there is an answer in Android Enthusiasts that links to kickstarter webpage, is it considered as spam? android.stackexchange.com/a/88366/44325
@AndrewT. nah, a NAA at most
The definition of flag spam is "not useful or relevant, but promotional". I think this is relevant, but would be better placed as a comment.
Ok, thanks!
IMHO spam, but I can see disagreement.
The huge image is unnecessary and makes the post look like an ad. I would edit it out.
1:43 AM
It's way late, it certainly is NAA, but really strikes me as a kickstarter promo.
Yeah, that's why I'm confused...
Definitely spam
A: What is the iPod touch's screen sensitive to?

DaidaitaoCame across this just now on kickstarter, looks like it could help. Some gadget that can help you keep the game active without touching, probably useful for what you need it for. kickstarter link

Q: We need to improve the quality of our spam!

UndoRecently, I've noticed a downhill effect in the quality of spam posted on Stack Exchange websites. Take this as an example (found on Space.SE): There are a great many things wrong with this artifact: There is not one capitalized letter in the entire post. (-1 grammar point.) The only pun...

This was the best example:
I love everything about that.
This results in the future. I also think we should merge sailsjs into sails.js as C++ requires an explicit return type to be int. — Cole Johnson Dec 11 '13 at 17:57

I should just make a bot that automatically stars the fox and jokes about drupal spam.
3:08 AM

3:39 AM
emphasize and pluses are more common in American English, afaik.
"Use 3 plusses to indicate inserted text" <-- I don't see these as pluses.
"add inline code which contents don't get parsed." <-- "the contents of which" would be more grammatical. And down with contractions.
Parsing 5^2 is nice. But spell-check "parenthatheses"
Using $ for subscript is weird, but you probably can't use underscore for that like mathematicians do.
3:43 AM
"a formatting sequence followed by the affected text followed by the same formatting sequence" is much too complicated. Just say that inline formatting uses symmetric delimiters.
@JasonC It explains the same thing as the other answer, but so much more clearly.
There aren't many games in which it never hurts to have an extra piece of your own on the board. Tic-Tac-Toe is one, besides Hex...
In chess, checkers and go an extra piece can hurt.

skimmed, not read... but, wow, another hidden feature of SO? stackoverflow.com/users/tag-future/current

@AndrewT. It's somewhat hidden, but was discussed on Meta. (And it's SE-wide, not only SO)
Q: Why isn't the predictor predicting?

BraiamSince "Jan 8 at (more or less) 19:57" the predictor or Tag Future Report hasn't been updated. This could screw more than one Recommended/Interesting tabs of Stack Overflow users. How often does this script run? Will not run anymore? Why it isn't running? When will it start predicting again?

ah, I missed that post
So it looks like this predictor runs on all the graduated sites? and not metas? But shouldn't meta.SE have it or no?
@cVplZ "The predictor thinks <insert-user-name> prefers, when compared to a typical user, to answer questions tagged: " Tada!
4:05 AM
It is not enabled on all sites - how well it works varies hugely depending on the nature of the site - and AFAIK it is not enabled on any meta sites, including meta.SE. — Marc Gravell ♦ Aug 22 at 14:33
When even Marc Gravell says AFAIK, you know how much attention the team is paying to this feature.
Oh perhaps ML is just not what he's working on.
@Doorknob But bjb is addicted to writing own parsers, which replace certain characters by Math.random().

@cVplZ sure, whom should I poke first? :P
This query is hilarious because it's looking for sexist posts, but the username of the person that made the query was given a sexist default username of jon.doe
A: Please use a more obviously synthesized username for new accounts on http://data.stackexchange.com/

Tim Stone Can default name be changed to some more obvious like "Unknown user" or "specify name"? I don't see any problem with changing it to "user####", to be consistent with how the rest of the network works. I think that should be straightforward enough. I'll check to see if there are any objection...

4:20 AM
@cVplZ That was me. Jon could be short for Jonina.
@cVplZ This makes no sense.

http://data.stackexchange.com/stackoverflow/query/249352/most-common-user-names There are 3828 Alex's.
And, you're late. Next!
But "Doe" suggests a reference to "John Doe", which is a canonical male name.
@Rafflesiaarnoldii I was being facetious (as I was with the "sexist" post query).
@JasonC lol, didn't see that post. I saw the weird string post on the star wall though, so figured someone made a query to find that , but didn't bother looking for it
4:22 AM
but it is Jon, not John, which instantly reminds me of a certain user on SO
That would be kinda funny if the data explorer dummy name was jon.skeet
Or pat!
lol , i think that was back in the good days of snl, before they became political and unfunny
why is this query data.stackexchange.com/stackoverflow/query/249499/test showing like this? what is the blank?
don't really care
4:42 AM
@cVplZ The blank is people who have not entered a location.
yea, but it should be way more I'd think
this query picks up lots of spam-only accounts, (probably with no activity), data.stackexchange.com/stackoverflow/query/249502/test
And lots of LinkedIn profiles in about me. Maybe exclude those?
not saying they all are, just the obvious ones
@cVplZ Actually it's people who once had a location but no longer do (their location is an empty string, not null). Use COUNT(*) instead of Count(Location) to also get the NULL ones.
^ thanks, that explains it
@Rafflesiaarnoldii Oh, I made this and forgot to share, lol: data.stackexchange.com/meta.stackexchange/query/249495/… (Things Marc Gravell Isn't Fully Aware Of)
