@ElementsInSpace I would, but unfortunately all the responses are anonymous, so I can't really do that ;)

@ElementsInSpace You win a badly drawn, and very stolen ASCII picture of a unicorn
 
@JourneymanGeek I like it.
 
@JourneymanGeek The rename of to was done without a meta request.
 
Well, there's an official SE approved reason for that. As a volunteer project SD wouldn't have that
also tag merges are potentially destructive and it would help the mods document it.
 
@JourneymanGeek With only 3 questions, though...
I'd have retagged myself if it weren't for the tag having a description.
 
12:35 AM
@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog Yeah, so if its 'incorrect' - the tag description gets thrown into orphaned wikis and last I checked that's messy
 
1:00 AM
@JourneymanGeek Yep, the same thing would happen with a manual retag.
 
So a meta post would provide documentation to what happened :D

@JourneymanGeek must format as code to preserve spaces, otherwise ASCII art becomes just ransom characters. :D
@user16217248 you can report cross site spammers in this room, or ping @JNat directly here with link to the cross site spammer network profile.
@ElementsInSpace no, not really. It's odd and unclear to most people, but meh... if they want to keep it forever years after the troll it should catch is gone, I can't really stop them, just frown every time I see this. ;)
@JourneymanGeek which I would downvote, smokedetectorishardtounderstand.
 
8:01 AM
@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog ugh, that looks awful in all lower case, but it's consistent with e.g. .
 
@Glorfindel Yep, and is also the spelling used on the Charcoal Team
 
@ShadowWizardIsSadAndAngry So that looks like where spammers get sent to receive their 100-year bans.
 
8:28 AM
@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog SmokeDetector is fine and readable. smokedetector is not.
That's just my opinion though.
@user16217248 actually no.
They're just deleted. The 100 years is "reserved" for trolls which keep coming back, spammers don't come back after nuked, in most cases.

hmm anyone think the error page being "inline" is odd? I mean, there is sidebar and footer, it looks like just another page. Pretty sure it was changed at some point, e.g. the 404 page is without sidebar and footer and on se.com there is footer in both but no sidebar. /cc @Journeyman what you think?
 
11:25 AM
@ShadowWizardIsSadAndAngry smoked etector, mmm.
 
@ElementsInSpace yummy!
 
11:49 AM
@ShadowWizardIsSadAndAngry Its always been like that
they removed the cutesy meme
 
12:18 PM
@user16217248 Very good slogan, though, "never stop living". Very appropriate for rental cars..
 
@ShadowWizardIsSadAndAngry they do
we have a one year suspension if your account is nuked and we have some... returning offenders
 
@JourneymanGeek huh, weird, usually I notice those things. D:
@JourneymanGeek hmm? Where?
 
In the error message pages?
I vaguely recall something involving cats
 
@JourneymanGeek some, sure. But most don't.
 
@ShadowWizardIsSadAndAngry its automatic if your account gets nuked for spamming now
has been a few months?
 
12:22 PM
@JourneymanGeek oh yeah it was removed ages ago. It was showing developer doing some silly thing in the past.
Around five pics, showing one in random.
 
Other than the username...
 
oh wait there was indeed lolcat!!
37
Q: Eeek! Stack Exchange devs have devoured the lolcat

Shadow Wizard Is Sad And AngryOnce upon a time, Stack Overflow used to have cool error page with a lolcat: But... it's hard to say it... the cat is no more and was replaced with no else than Jarrod Dixon who is also shamelessly using The V-Tech Talking Whiz Kid Mouse PRO Deluxe! Please bring the cat back! :) Oh, and the...

 
that looks more lost souley than spammery
 
lol
@JourneymanGeek lost soul won't have such name.
They'll either edit spam into the question, or edit their profile to contain their spam. 1000%
So can consider this post as a sure spam seed.
 
I'm going to lost soul it first and you can be smug at me keep the option to flag open once they've shown their true colours
 
12:27 PM
meh I'm taking shortcuts :D

lol new email domain: js
I'd ask to ignore .js in email check but meh, got the clue that it's pointless to ask. So it's just self rants. :D
No match

I know this was probably a canned comment but I think what brought them here is Lovely Professional University which 1. is apparently a real educational establishment 2. the students of have been posting some low quality questions on SO for the past week or so
...and the post was deleted before I could post the link to the comment.
But yeah, I found the LinkedIn profile of somebody with the exact same name and location as that SE user. The LinkedIn profile claims they started LPU this year. It's been a trend for a strain of low quality posts on SO.
 
3:16 PM
@VLAZ it was
 
3:35 PM
@VLAZ ok, but what can we do about it?
Or even should?
That said, "Lovely Professional University" screams of low quality to begin with. :D
 
@ShadowWizardIsSadAndAngry Nothing out of the ordinary. Just wanted to share it seems to be leaking even outside SO.
 
I mean... can't really have a worse name.
 
Closure + deletion is the best option we have.
 
@VLAZ nah, as long as it's not really a flood it's the ordinary lost soul rate.
(i.e. nobody there posted direct link to MSE saying "ask there")
@VLAZ yep, as with any lost soul or off topic questions. :)
@VLAZ actually I found something else same name and picture i.e. same person, and no mention of that university you mentioned. Who did you find and how?
 
@ShadowWizardIsSadAndAngry I can't see that - LinkedIn is asking me to log in. I can find the previous link I had which is this but also asks me to log in to see it.
Maybe I ran out of "free profile views" today?

@VLAZ yeah never figured how LinkedIn works, for me it still sometimes change language on its own. lol
Anyway you might be correct, to me they look very much alike. D:
@DavidPostill yeah @VLAZ found it.
 
@starball no? Reputation gain is immediate. Do you have any source claiming otherwise? — Shadow Wizard Is Sad And Angry 7 hours ago
@ShadowWizardIsSadAndAngry I think just personal experience. but that was a while ago. I haven't been chasing bounties or paying attention to when the rep is awarded for them for a while
 
6:54 PM
@starball well there's delay when downvoting (so it's harder to detect who downvotes answers by monitoring reputation) and a delay when something that is deleted affects reputation, but usually even this is a short delay.
And never seen case of delay with bounty.
