4:00 PM
but outside religion - many of the choices I made - say vegetarianism are informed by, but not totally tied into it
Q: Brothers, we are not Christians‼

CalebI am a Christian. You say you are. But we are not.1 It seems that a lot of folks are having a hard time wrapping their heads around the scope of this site. While I respect the SE staff2 and have been impressed with the effort they have taken (and judgement they have shown) in nurturing this site...

and Bramins being purely vegetarian is historically recent
Still my favorite statement of purpose for religion sites on SE
(and I respect folks have other paths, religious or otherwise)
see I respect religious people I don't necessarily respect religions
4:03 PM
which is also fine
regardless of their ideology everyone is their own person and their actions define them more
But the way I profess my faith, would be very different to how my grandfather would, and my great grandfather would...
but but. that's historical context ;p
As long as you don't tell me I need to profess your faith too I don't think we'd have any issues
oh hell no
outside of common courtesy like not eating meat right in front of you if I can help it for instance
4:05 PM
I'm cool with that.
(actually I'm firmly against trying to convert people to hinduism. If they want to... ugh, go find an actual priest, not some computer geek ;p)
"-3" "answered with a cold detached reference to scriptures"
and ok, at this point I think I'm going to have to do what's right, and deal with the annoyed CMs if I'm not....
pls go ahead
this discussion isn't for this room I think
4:09 PM
@user1114 @user1114 @JeremyBanks @ReadandSee why so many names
well, on the other hand, I'm cool with religious SE sites, but I can't stand any topics on Philosophy.SE... (I'm not that religious either)
HOW so many names in such short time?
@hey not all of SE is for everyone ;p
(like say... some folk never go on SO)
@Jhoverit I was a moderator. Now I am not, so my name will not be changing again soon.
@user1114 did you resign?
4:13 PM
Lmao making a good comeback eh?
@JourneymanGeek definitely, but that's what I experience as a HNQ hopper... I hate my curiosity to always open Philosophy HNQ then get triggered silently... :(
No, I did not resign.
But my actions weren't exactly consistent with someone who was trying to avoid this, so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.
well, it's almost midnight here, better sleep to refresh the mind...
undo's minirant of the day: I'm encouraged by SE staff's apparent channeling of this energy into solid, useful improvements to the Q&A platform.
maybe not a rant, but gotta use the label
4:16 PM
-1 not a rant ;p
I.. failed to see the rant ._.
@Undo rantfail
real minirant of the day: I have a sore throat and it's terrible, why have we not solved this yet? Like, we can send stuff to Mars and cure a decent amount of cancer, can't we make a spray or something that fixes this?
@Undo I had one the other day
hydrogen peroxide spray is awesome, but temporary
4:18 PM
basically curbstomped them with dequadin and eumenthol jujubes.
@Undo whisky
@Undo Hydrogen peroxide also helps send stuff to Mars. :P
but yes, gargling with a weak hydrogen peroxide solution is pretty effective and cheaper than whisky
@Shog9 he's not of age though, so you're a bad influence
technically legal as long as I'm not getting my medicine from a bar
4:20 PM
lol. I was 14 when I started on SR. Time flies, but not that fast :P
not that long ago
3 years?
Pretty sure I was at dneg at the time
everytime I get a sore throat its tonsilitis
4:22 PM
and heh, I've been a mod longer than I've worked in any one place :)
wtb removed tonsils
Take a bus up to Quebec, Alberta, or Manitoba (drinking age 18) and I'll buy the first round.
4:40 PM
@Taryn update: lunch was spectacular
@Undo As counter-intuitive as it sounds.. Warm salt water lol
@SterlingArcher nice!!
I've heard that one
@user1114 I thought it was just a short fluke but apparently meta.stackexchange.com/users/134300/user1114 (your profile page) is inaccessible, infinite loading state. Kind of weird
Anyone else?
Works in incognito. Weird af.
Nope, it crashes the page in incognito
@Jhoverit they now know where you live ...
4:44 PM
I move 600 miles in 1 week. They can log this address
@Jhoverit jeremy is in this list. I assume he is white-hat but he might have put some nice things for us in his profile page ....
@Undo who was younger when they started moderatoring? You or Boltclock I wonder
I hope boltclock
on the simple premise of being my countryman ;p
me by a long ways
Apparently Boltclock was 19
For some reason I was thinking he started much younger
4:48 PM
whippersnappers ;p
we had to evaluate the risks on him :P
I guess I was thinking of his Flash days at Newgrounds
@rene I find that... Alarming?
@JourneymanGeek I have discovered the secret to keeping Stack Exchange successful... have someone from Singapore as a mod on every site
Suddenly it is fixed.
4:51 PM
@Jhoverit sure!
I was just having a bit of fun with your browser. No worries.
It's just a silly resource-exhaustion bug that kills the tab, nothing actually risking your information.
@user1114 something with uhoh and aws... >_>
4:52 PM
@user1114 Why isn't it reported and remedied yet?
@Jhoverit it is on Chrome's bug list I assume?
A: Allowing images from external sources opens doors to serious security exploits

user1114I strongly recommend blocking non-Stack-hosted images in posts and messages going forward. The potential harm may not be severe, but it exists and there is no benefit to balance it out. Reasons to leave them: To avoid inconveniencing editors of old posts, as we already do for HTTP images. Noth...

@rene It's not a Chrome bug
Or is it?
it is
It's sort-of a Chrome bug, but Stack can avoid it by disallowing SVGs, by disallowing external images.
4:54 PM
That's dope
it totally is
welcome to SO please show your code.... — לבני מלכה 1 min ago
> Welcome to Costco I love you
@user1114 I just really like that image and feel that I need to include it in my About
@user1114 @rene you guys know you can kill entire chat rooms for Chrome like that? Since we allow oneboxing svgs
I have to go fix the sandbox now lmao
I don't want anymore attention to come to that so Imma drop it lol...
5:01 PM
uh I though I removed it from my profile but it looks like the network propagation failed
should be gone now

5:52 PM
@Andy Guess I know who's been handling flags I've raised. :)
6:17 PM
OK, I hope the room is back to normal now
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ define normal
@rene The Tavern in, say, 2 weeks ago
Which I hope works
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ can't promise anything. Results from the past are no guarantee for the future.
I wouldn't trust your promise anyway
That's before me though
What are you trying to say
6:24 PM
@SterlingArcher no it's not. Maybe
I'm not sure what that means but I'm going to take it as offensive
@SterlingArcher >:&
6:27 PM
@rene Then what happens to renic comments?
Meanwhile, on Chem meta
Q: Close Votes Aren't Super Downvotes

M.A.R. ಠ_ಠUnfortunately, we've had a problem for quite a while now. It basically boils down to close voting questions with reasons that don't fit. Essentially, the Homework off-topic close reason, "unclear what you're asking", and "too broad" reasons are sometimes used where they make no sense whatsoever. ...

I got a D in chemistry
I guess a bad pun with D would be a bad idea?
I barely passed chemistry in 10th grade and never took it again
organic chemistry and isomeres were too mind bending for me
and the teacher was bad
I see there's an astonishing amount of chem love
@user5389107 I find this usually stands for 80 percent of hating a lesson
At least in case of chem
6:33 PM
We're really bonding here
Well yeah, but she was the only chemistry teacher teaching AP courses
@rene I'm going to oxidize you
so It was either take physics and biology instead or continue chemistry with her
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ fine
I would almost fall asleep in class and it was nearly impossible to listen without getting the boredom of a thousand idle hours inflicted on you
And I wasn't a very good student there and flunked all of the exams
6:38 PM
@rene It's gonna sting a bit, but you'll never be the same
You'd also probably die, but that's favorable
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ I've never felt the same after I had been in contact with you anyway
@rene Awwww that's cute
that depends on your point of view I guess ...
I am in a superior position
Everyone is in a superior position to a flower. To smell them
Do you really want to sniff rene, though?
6:43 PM
But you'll never know if I just farted or not ....
@rene Are you one of those stinking huge flowers who only attract flies?
Probably marginalized too
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ I might eat flies.
Now I get why you prefer to be blurry
Anyone know anything about the new user process for slack?

6:54 PM
@SmokeDetector Is the image NSFW?
they literally posted a screenshot of a question
@SmokeDetector N
Flagging it without comment is sad
But I'm from Charcoal and I shouldn't comment :p
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ oh, does that go for all cases?
@rene shrug
I guess
At least Charcoal is forgotten and the rants are directed elsewhere
@rene It's a "if you're not familiar with the site don't comment" that goes for most people, with common sense applied.
6:59 PM
We can continue taking over the system quietly
@Mithrandir fair enough. If it comes to common sense I'm out.
^ can confirm
@Bart Can you confirm that he's out, or that you are as well? Or maybe acknowledge that Charcoal is taking over the system
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ not sure if I'm out ... heck, I don't know if I've ever been in.
7:08 PM
@Bart please take note of the pinned messages ... specially the 2nd one ... >:/
Glasses are usually on. Unless you're eaten
I carefully considered it @rene. If I'm going down, I'm taking this chat with me
oh for the love of markdown
markdown has no love
markdown is fear. markdown is death
7:13 PM
@MikeTheLiar pooping on your jokes since 1888
@JourneymanGeek Nah, just joke pooper
Somebody once told me
That star was gonna bold me
It an't the clearest spec in the shed
@MikeTheLiar markdown is so standard there's two different dialects in use on SE
Three even
AFAIK you can't strike in comments
And let's not even get started on MathJax
very standard ;p
They were talking about commonmark for a bit but that never happened
much spec
so consistency

That's it, I'm no longer a wizard.
10:23 PM
I'm still not of the opinion the situation as is requires nearly as much attention as it has received.
@SonicWizard sure, shadow said some ill considered things - but saying stuff like that helps no one
@JourneymanGeek You should probably wait for the cache to update
@SonicWizard sure, shadow said some ill considered things - but saying stuff like that helps no one
Why repeat?
10:24 PM
connection issues
that sometimes happens when your connection is really bad
And the cache is updated
Don't you think that's kind of in poor taste?

@SonictheInclusiveHedgehog You are the hero this ideology-driven company needs. Have a star.
@bro Please unstar that and star this one:
(Old username was showing.)
@SonictheInclusiveHedgehog that's plain not nice
What is not nice?
Its a personal attack on another user
more than once too
A personal attack is a baseless claim. The difference is, my claim has evidence. You're an RO, you can read the deleted messages posted by him.
11:50 PM
Thats actually kinda toxic, and the sort of environment we should be trying not to make. Yeah, someone messed up. Its been handled. How does bringing it up again (and again) make it any better?
I'm asking you not to do that.
Gee, I was just announcing the reasons for my username change.
@SonictheInclusiveHedgehog No. It's not. Being "true" is irrelevant. The Be Nice policy doesn't care whether what you say is accurate or not.
The second posting was solely for technical reasons (I posted the first before my chat profile updated to my new username, so in the starred messages it shows my old name, which as I said I no longer identify by.)
(I will admit that I've been not so nice towards suspended users, which is something that SE doesn't appreciate us doing.)
@SonictheInclusiveHedgehog you want to be told when you're wrong. What you're doing is wrong.
Yup! And I'm going "this is not nice" so you can avoid doing this in the future.
Thanks for pointing this out to me quickly.
@JourneymanGeek If you could please use your RO powers to clear the stars on my message
11:58 PM
I'd actually like to remove those posts but ugh, I have no delete powers here.
