TeX-SX is a remarkable site... elected three mods in March 2011, and that was it... same mod team since then.
 
they are a remarkable community in many ways

By the way... we know Sweden is expensive to buy, but .sx TLD would work just as well, and what's Sint Maarten anyway?

I hate it when it does that.

I feel like the bugs of the cell site are through Brownian motion creeping into the real one.
This is the problem with weak cell walls. They leak.

I suppose we’ll get a few score of those soon enough.

Where do I flag it? :)
 
And why doesn't @Smoke report chinese on that site? Is it excluded?
 
Guess.

Do some Japanese characters match \p{Han} too, or are they completely separate?

One way to find out is to wait until a post from Japanese Language gets reported.

@tchrist ^ the regexes wouldn't catch that one
 
May I please propose that they do so? :(

The reason is that "shit" is between word boundaries.
I once removed all word boundaries. Lots of FPs came in. So I'm not sure if that would be a good idea.
 
But \bshithole\b would be reasonable.
 
Yeah, that should work.
I'll add some more variations of "shit" like that one.

is funny when someone says that there's a problem, and you answer that is not a problem but three problems
 
@Braiam shouldn't identify be identifying?
 
Also: lets => let’s, gripping => complaint (probably not griping), user which => user who.
 
@rene no, it's used as infinitive: you are incapable of act
 
OK
 
2:32 PM
René is right: English can’t use a bare infinitive as the object of a preposition. It usually uses the gerund, and this should be capable of identifying.
 
@tchrist I'm thinking of "the griping hand"
 
Oh.
Yes, grip is clasp while gripe is complain. Well, or the flu or something.
 
but yes, the double p isn't correct
@tchrist ok
 
By clasp, I mean grab hold of.
 
sounds weird in spanish: los usuarios no son capaces de identificando
 
2:35 PM
It’s in fact illegal in Spanish.
 
!!/lick
 
@bjb568 licks ice cream cone
 
A gerund cannot be a substantive in Spanish.
Nor, for the most part, in (European) Portuguese. It does happen in Brazil, though, and this use may be spreading.
Hay que decir que los usuarios no son capaces de identificar algo. Sin embargo como adverbio: Identificando el problema, abrieron la puerta y salieron corriendo.
 
yes, on those cases the gerund is correct
