tempted to run sd 100k :D
I do hope there's sanity check there, e.g. can't do more than 5 or 10.
Also wonder what happens when messages are moved...
(e.g. sd 3k and two of those moved to Chimney before the command is executed)

@ShadowWizardLoveZelda check(sanity) returns false
 
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda Well someone has . . . diplopia? Sidelopia?
 
1:27 PM
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda Didn't someone crash SD once by doing that? (Twice?)
 
1:37 PM
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda gets insecure
 
1:50 PM
@VLAZ not me, of course I'm insane. :P
@M.A.R. poor soul!
 
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda what does a soul need money for?
 
@M.A.R. sounds like something Peter might do.... but he doesn't have permissions... hmm.... :D
(and now he has no user, so can't even reply. ;))
 
@M.A.R. Paying the ferryman.
 
(SE promised him to check and guess what? They didn't! What a HUGE surprise. lol)
Only if that will happen to staff they'll actually do something. So annoying.
 
@Tinkeringbell Imagine if God saw America and decided capitalism is a great economically feasible idea for the afterlife. You get to buy the body you are going to be reborn with.
 
1:53 PM
@M.A.R. you have more hair! :D
 
@M.A.R. Great item!
 
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda Nah, I'm talking ancient history. I know I crashed SD once by feedbacking a deleted message
 
@M.A.R. good job!
 
Now SD is two steps removed from Skynet; even Peter can't crash it
 
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda gets even more insecure
One day I'm going to shave it all and go full Walter White
But, I still have some presentable amount of hair. It's merely at the "high forehead" stage.
 
@M.A.R. you can't reach all the places you have hair in, so you'll need help.
waiting
 
@M.A.R. Stable diffusion?
 
@M.A.R. I think there was something somewhere about reincarnation and transferring debts/inheritance to the reincarnated person instead of heirs...
Interesting idea, very bleak prospects :P
 
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda Hey hands off what're you doing
 
1:57 PM
@M.A.R. no hands?! Even better. :D
 
@SPArcheon I don't know the second thing about horses, sorry
@Tinkeringbell "trickle down six feet under" economy
 
@Tinkeringbell isn't that the whole concept of karma and reincarnating at a lower level?
 
Not necessarily, though from what I understand there's indeed not a way to 'move castes'?
@M.A.R. Hey, graverobbing can be job, it's called archaeology ;)
 
@Tinkeringbell well, your "bad karma" debt in one life in the Manusya (man) realm could cause you to be reborn in the Tiryak (animals) one so... you took your debt with you.
 
2:13 PM
Heh. Now we have a tiger that owes someone money. I'd like to see how debt collectors approach that one! :D
 
Also,I now realize that talking about samsara cycles with this avatar feels a little odd.
I must be wary, I don't want to become a radish.
(that said... do I also get All Schemes to Know? Could be useful, I'll just have to remember to never point at Shadow)
 
Hey @Sha SPA wants to use a mindreading skill on you. Think happy thoughts
No not like that
 
@M.A.R. No, I precisely want to avoid ever pointing that thing even remotely close to Shadow.
 
2:37 PM
@Tinkeringbell It would be more apt for someone in debt to reincarnate as an opossum
 
Because?
 
To play dead?
You're making me explain my joke
Sulks in a corner
 
Sorry. I had a way too short night's sleep today.
Less than 5 hours and pretty much every joke goes over my already not too high head.
 
Don't worry about it. I haven't slept properly in a month
 
But it was a good one, even now that it's explained!
@M.A.R. Heh. I try not to, worrying/thinking is probably what kept me awake :P
 
2:40 PM
Which is ironic given I give advice on sleep every day I'm in the pharmacy
 
"Take this pill and you will sleep for the rest of your life"?
 
@Tinkeringbell Sounds like sound advice but I have had this horrible realization that I might possess what is commonly referred to as "conscience" and it's such a bother
Though some similar things are expressed more often than you think in healthcare

> It also has its limits. Over the past few months, the Community Management team has been working diligently to understand the boundaries of the systems we rely on, and seriously evaluate the question: will they carry us forward for another ten years?
Um, leave well enough alone? Anyone?
Oh I see.
Titles, shiny titles. Who doesn't like shiny titles.
 
3:31 PM
@M.A.R. oopsie. Too late.
 
!!/tea Sha
 
@Spevacus brews a cup of lemon tea for @Sha
 
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda brews a cup of green tea for @Spe

3:43 PM
:)
 
oh bummer @rene's script is going to move this to Chimney, people would wonder about the above out of context messages. :D
(the script just moves all commands.)
 
9 messages moved to Chimney
not yet ...
 
WHY PING HIM
YOU INVOKED THE WRATH
 
@rene yeah, it leaves couple of hours behind.
oh wait it doesn't move all commands, there's still coffee here, but it did move many. So dunno how it works. Random? ;)
@Spevacus Wrath of the Flower
checking if it's existing song/band name
Huh, turns out it's a poster.
:-D
 
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda If my hair was that long I'd be angry too
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda :--D
My nose is broken
:-D :–D :—D
 
3:58 PM
@M.A.R. and messy
@M.A.R. nah it's just long
UInt(nose);
 
@M.A.R. umm.. that does not look like a nose...
runs away in panic
 
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda It's a proboscis.
All of us only have nooboscisses in comparison.
 
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda The uncouth demon will find you
 
4:06 PM
@M.A.R. runs away from @SPA
> an elongated sucking mouthpart that is typically tubular and flexible
 
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda That nose is very sexy though.
 
@M.A.R. depends
 
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda You're not gonna make me say it
Look at that helpful arrow
It's more helpful than you and I combined have ever been

*drops in to bonk @Sha with an accessibility baseball bat and leave*
 
4:58 PM
Is there a sort of scam that's not aimed at customers?
Maybe if it's flung in a random direction instead

just wondering, about this meta question.
Why is the OP question on SO closed as off topic yet the one fyrepenguin linked as "similar" actually isn't?
 
@SPArcheon The one on the same topic is closed.
 
@ElementsInSpace Read again :P It is closed, but as "bad/lacking focus" - not as OFF TOPIC
Also, this basically equivalent question is open
1
Q: Adding ssh key to gitlab

Pedro G.I installed Gitlab on a Fedora 17 server following this guide and I believe everything works fine, except that I cannot add ssh keys or push my local repository to the server. When trying to add a SSH key via the web interface I get the message "Fingerprint cannot be generated" When I try to p...

Mind you, I am not lamenting the closure. I am unsure it was Off Topic specifically
Right now, you basically told the new user "nope, won't help you, go elsewhere"
Not a nice first experience.
While maybe they could have uses some actual "hey, your question is written very poorly, here is how to improve it. Also, it may be a dupe, check here"
 
@SPArcheon I didn’t say that.
 
@ElementsInSpace "you" as in "the site" - not you
sorry for being unclear, I admit it wasn't exactly the best way to write it
 
@SPArcheon doesn't matter, once a new user (or even not new) would see "your question is written very poorly" they'll get raged up, see it as toxic and consider it as personal offense.
Not to mention downvotes, that's really like burning them alive.
 
6:32 PM
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda Not sure I agree.
 
So bottom line, doesn't matter what we say, they'll see it as terrible experience and say to the whole world how awful SO is.
(I mean if they get downvote, or comment daring to say something bad about their question.)
Maybe 0.0000001% would actually read comments and think to try and improve, but it's tiny drop in the huge ocean of new users, so not relevant.
 
7:01 PM
Man, SO is very awful. Here's a short video on why I'm right.
 
7:38 PM
Very short indeed.

@starball That sort of method requires active work. Ideally system guards against fraud are passive and can run unattended. Both would be ideal, but at the very least, the first one to be adopted should be the passive one. — TylerH 8 mins ago
@TylerH interesting perspective. I'm curious to know your thoughts on meta.stackexchange.com/a/393604/997587
 
I've advocated for that a few times
 
and on how well you think the voting system adheres to that philosophy of yours
 
not publicly on meta tho
 
@AndreasmovedtoCodidact hey don't judge my shorts
 
@M.A.R. Ok, they accentuate your thick leg hair, but I won't have an opinion about that.
 
10:02 PM
@starball what's interesting about anonymous feedback is how much more negative it is
 
@KevinB compared to what? registered feedback? I don't think that comparison is interesting at all. obviously anonymous feedback is proportionally more negative than registered feedback. the populations aren't the same between them. way more people can't downvote
many people who can give registered positive feedback can only give anonymous negative feedback.
 
right, you expect there to be some difference, but 40% vs 4%? there's a very real question there to be answered as far as how... useful that indicator is if taken at face value
 
(and if you're comparing anonymous negative feedback to anonymous positive feedback, that's just not true).
 
i was comparing % negative to % negative anon, which obviously relates to the positives of each
it's also unclear whether or not the data we get from the mod tools are limited by deletion equally
 
10:28 PM
@starball I'm not sure I understand that post, or how it relates to the other suggest we were commenting on
 
10:55 PM
@TylerH do you think the voting system follow the principle of "passive by default" in handling voting fraud?
@KevinB I tried to dig a little because you got me interested. what expected to find is that people with 125 proportionally cast more downvotes than people with below 125 rep. weirdly, unless I'm doing something wrong (which I very well could be), I found the opposite. data.stackexchange.com/stackoverflow/revision/1821006/2212731
 
i'm not picking up what the result is indicating
(not super familiar with sede)
