@DialFrost I'd say that really depends on context so it's hard to say without knowing more but this might be a good place to start
Spam about plumbing O_o 🚽
 
@Feeds Chats are good, oneboxes are mortal

@curious not uncommon
some of these spam-mills just hit everything they can with everything they got
 
8:27 AM
@curious We had a whole wave of spam for plumbing and garage door repair for just about every city in the Houston, Texas metro area...on Stack Overflow.
I don't really get it. They get deleted basically instantly. Posting blatant spam really does not work here.
And yet they persist.
 
8:39 AM
They are probably grunts who get paid a long as they can prove it was posted.
 
We often make that difficult when we destroy their accounts... :-)
 
Yeah, but if they take a screen capture fast enough ...
 
True. I dunno how spammer proof-of-spam works.
 
Me neither
 
Personally I would be disinclined to trust a spam farm's screenshots given that they're doing shady stuff to begin with, but who knows.

@DavidPostill That's what I thought too...or maybe something related to SEO? It just seems way too specific. I ended up going in Chimney and finding more.
Where is all the keto stuff? What has the world come to?
 
bought by Drupal, I guess?

@Feeds What we learned from DDoO attacks
 
1:44 PM
After gathering some information, looks like the new site design for the 7 sites is moving to the next phase: Design V1.
 
2:31 PM
@Feeds Does this look horrible in dark mode for anyone else?
 
@Spevacus oh, it's not only me then...
 
Gonna go complai- I mean, raise a concern about it on Meta :)
 
2:46 PM
> We learned how to not layout blog posts
it's also horrible in not dark mode

I've just edited the title of codegolf.stackexchange.com/q/84 to uncensor "brainf***" into "brainfuck", but I check the edit history and found this:
> Stack Exchange rules disallow brainfuck's name in titles, specifically (this rule was added a while back after PPCG caused trouble for the rest of the site)
Is that rule still in force (5 years later)?
 
@pxeger the usual concern is if the question got into HNQ: Profanity in hot questions list
and yes, it's also the current policy to avoid potential expletives on the title network-wide
 
4:30 PM
@MetaAndrewT. common sense
But body of HNQ question or its answers might still contain such things and that can't really be avoided.
@pxeger problem is that not everyone know what brainfuck means, actually most people (overall) don't, and for them it sounds like offensive word.
So it's fine on SO and the tech sites, probably, but SE consists of many more sites.
 
@ShadowWizardSaysNoMoreWar and if it's posted on Scifi.SE, then it's possibly a literal thing...
 
@Spevacus compile meta?!
@MetaAndrewT. haha, that's beyond even my own naughty level. :P
hmm think I saw ping from @M.A.R, let me find it....
@M.A.R. but you can't even sing, how would you calm down your baby?
:(
hmm wonder if that will still ping...
 
It did :) Serenade me with your lovely voice Mr. Wizard
 
@Spevacus no no no, my voice will cause your ears to detach themselves from your head, and run away for their lives.
I'm using Smokey for that.
Well, that is if Smokey could sing, but alas, he can't. :(
So I'm afraid no lovely song for you. cry
 
Smokey could beep. That'd be about it.
Hopefully it can alter the pitch of the beep
Well I guess it can't beep on command anyway D:
 
4:51 PM
@ShadowWizardSaysNoMoreWar our babies are very considerate from the start and don't ever cry loudly
@Spevacus they haven't had time to learn from dark mode designs because they were too busy learning from DDoS attacks! Duh!
 
@M.A.R. it's not just the volume, it's having them awake all night, meaning you can't sleep either...
 
@ShadowWizardSaysNoMoreWar that also comes with the considerate package. We just press snooze and sleep
 
@M.A.R. hmm how much such baby cost?
