@JanDvorak I can't believe that. Laslo seemed like such a nice guy.

can you guys upvote this comment please meta.stackexchange.com/questions/235255/…
because this feature request has 176 upotes / 0 downvotes, 7 bounties have been offered and no mod/employee has even left a comment on it, let alone an answer

1:43 PM
Does anyone have any idea why I get double pinged (the sound plays twice) each time anyone pings me? I don't have any other browser windows or tabs open in chat, I have restarted the browser and the computer, I've cleared all cookies. This does not happen in chrome, only firefox and it does not happen if I open a private firefox window. However, it does happen even if I disable all addons and userscripts in my regular session. What else can I check?
@terdon doubled?
Hmm, I think not. Could you do that again please?
@terdon ding dong
@terdon I typed this one
@terdon I didn't type this one
@terdon it can happen when one edits the message shortly after posting it. Like this.
1:48 PM
Huh! Nice, no, it only pings me once here. So it looks like a chat.SE thing, not a chat.meta one.
and it's by design
Q: Don't repeat the ping when editing chat messages

Mad ScientistIf you use an @notification in chat messages it will notify the corresponding user with a small circle (or snowman) on their gravatar and (if enabled) a sound effect. Now, when you have notified a user that way they will be notified again if you edit the message containing the @notification. I ...

@ShadowWizard I know, but that's not what's going on.
@terdon oh, OK. So probably Firefox issue.
1:49 PM
It is a firefox issue, works fine in chrome.
Worked fine in firefox until yesterday too. And no, I don't remember what I did to break it :)
Latest version, I assume?
But as it worked until yesterday, I doubt it's anything to do with the version. Especially since it works in a private window.
What else apart from addons/login info changes between a private and normal firefox window? WTF is it working on one and not the other with all my scripts and addons disabled ?
Then a fresh profile should also not have the problem. Can you verify?
Indeed. Hang on.
Back in a sec
Right. Could you ping me again please @Stijn?
@terdon test
1:57 PM
Yup. Single ping with the new profile.
Dammit though, I've disabled everything on the old one, what else can it be?
Back in the old profile again.
So addons were disabled. Did you check userscripts?
Also disabled.
Via greasemonkey
@terdon test
idiot forgot it doesn't have the issue here :)
Now where would this question be on topic?
Not SU since it's a webpage issue. Meta.SE perhaps?
Yeah, that's what I figured. But since it's obviously something specific to me, I thought it might squeeze by on one of the tech sites.
@terdon how can you reply to yourself?
2:05 PM
@ShadowWizard It's a plugin
so you did not disable everything... ;)
maybe that's the culprit?

@Alex - we hate fun ;)
2:24 PM
that was plain trolling, not fun :)
@Alex - the last comment by a mod (also the one who deleted the post) pretty much sums it up: "If this is a serious question you'd get a lot further by using different variable names."
@ShadowWizard not trolling... more like playground name calling phenomenon
A maternal insult (also referred to as a "yo mama" joke) is a reference to a person's mother through the use of phrases such as "your mother" or other regional variants, frequently used to insult the target by way of their mother. Used as an insult, "your mother..." preys on widespread sentiments of filial piety, making the insult particularly and globally offensive. "Your mother" can be combined with most types of insults, although suggestions of promiscuity are particularly common. Insults based on obesity, incest, age, race, poverty, poor hygiene, unattractiveness, or stupidity m...
@Alex but on a professional site which clearly forbids those things it becomes trolling. I would flag such thing as abusive, as the user is abusing the power to ask questions in a bad manner.
oh wow that question is hilarious :D
2:37 PM
@ShadowWizard it is offensive, I suppose there's no point putting it on hold and leaving it there, I can just imagine someone posting a link to it in a chat room to troll with
it could be argued that the offensiveness of it would merit a deeper kind of deletion, since the post is still visible to certain members, it has the potential to offend them just as much as it would anyone else who happens to see it
i am unable to see it, but I was able to see the screenshot that was posted here, i'm tempted to flag that as offensive
@alex To flag my link to it here?
i find it offensive
@Alex - sorry to hear that
It's humour, it's bound to offend someone.
@Stijn Is this supposed to be humorous? I'm slightly offended.
2:47 PM
hmmm... I am now offered to review your flag, @alex...
with such power comes great responsibility ;)
So "Your mama codes procedurally in PHP" is the new "Your mama wears combat boots"?
I'd say that's an improvement, because my mama, quite frankly, looked ridiculous in combat boots.
@TimPost I think it all boils down to "your mama is fat", cross language. The message was quite clear!
@Lix i was never good at all that "your momma" stuff when I was a child, I've always felt that it's really awful.
i can only hope it that post wasn't made by an adult, it's really the sort of thing you expect a child to do
@Alex It was written by someone that's obviously struggling with maturity. It's not really a matter of age.
2:55 PM
Well said tim...
I also detested that sort of mindless fallacious taunting that children often did. But that's not what this was, this was just someone trying to be clever and rather falling on their nose in the process. The intent seemed to be to make people laugh, and it's really the perceived intent that matters.
After spending the past 3 hours pondering whether I should finally upgrade my 2 season sleeping bag to a 4 season one or to buy another tent (currently I have 1 cheap flimsy one, one that's too small/not enough for me and my bag - both that the same time, and one that's too big & heavy.) I figured out that if I participate in an activity that has a 0.2% chance of killing myself every weekend, more than half of the chance I would be dead in 7 years.
diving & real adventure caving would probably exceed that fatality rate ...
So if I stick to those two activities ...
3:02 PM
@chmod711telkitty Have you tried decaf?
@Stijn I don't think so. Retag means changing name of a tag, burninate means just burn a tag, without replacing with other.
I've just burninated on MSE :)
@ShadowWizard The excerpt of retag-request does mention what sounds like burninating: "This tag is for requests to replace one tag with another existing tag. It also applies to requests that one tag should be merged into another, or simply abandoned."
hmm... so this is a gray zone indeed. Needs an Expert. @TimPost what you think? :)
@chmod711telkitty Is diving statistically more dangerous? I'd think it would be, because you don't have much chance of error correction once you've realized it's needed.
