Q: User harassment outside of StackExchange

CfreakEarlier I voted to close a question on Stackoverflow. (user was ranting about the site). This person proceeded track down an email address via my publicly listed website and email me regarding my close vote. Presumably he attempted to do this to other users as well. I won't name the user because...

I got a discussion bronze badge on MSO! Yay!
 
That you got a discussing bronze badge on MSO? D:
 
Interesting since it says I have 161 score…
Maybe because of account merge?

@bjb568 What's the close reason?
 
@Unihedron Unclear. You can use that for any question without the ? character :P
(also… questions that are unclear)
 
Haha. xD I see now.
 
@JanDvorak I would say you beat me, but I correctly used the spam tag
 
@iStimple However, you failed to use it just now.
 
Haha. xD
 
@SantaClaus no, only use it when referencing an actual spam post

A: How to know which questions should be closed

bjb568Ok, I agree that it's more useful to close new questions, but that doesn't mean that closing old questions is a "waste of time" or that it should be discouraged. Questions should be closed when they have little potential value to the community, are off-topic, or actively cause harm. If a questio...

Anyone would like to enlighten me to how to respond to comments like these?

@iStimple The user's other answer is spam, too.
 
here didn't check videos
 
4:55 AM
@Jamal I think it's VLQ instead.
 
@iStimple no description just a link. amazing users.. :/
 
Those YouTube links are spammy.
 
That's the definition of VLQ - these posts should be removed immediately
 
why users are answering when there already answer accepted before 2 years. :/
 
If it adds something to other answers, encourage and UV. If it doesn't, be straightforward and tell them the post was 2 years ago and the answer didn't add anything helpful.

Until I get to 3k rep and can cast close votes, I don't want to review first posts anymore. It gives me a headache.

Much spam, wow!
 
is this a valid answer?
 
Does drupal.se get more spam than the other sites or does it just happen to get reported more in here?
 
@DroidDev yes
 
5:33 AM
@DroidDev answer is valid but he should add some description too.
 
@iStimple but it only contains links to other answers, better done, the user should have flagged it as duplicate
 
@DroidDev that person doesn't have enough repo
 
@DroidDev "You could try using SparseBooleanArray " is an answer
it's an android class in the docs
it's an answer that just points the questioner in the right direction, not telling him how to do everything
 
@Pops Can't... look... away...
AHHHHHHHHHHHH
 
@iStimple agreed.
 
5:37 AM
hmmm, ok
 
5:57 AM
is this answer valid. Isn't it a link only answer?
 
@DroidDev Link-only. Should be a comment on the answer of the person mentioned in their answer.

@Unihedron If only SOA was around that probably never would have happened.
Oh, sorry I promised I wouldn't be snarky any more.
No wait I promised one snarky comment per week. So I'm good until next Wednesday.

[feature-request] Add testosterone as a SmokeDetector filter @Undo
 
Gone. Last hit from here.
 
6:50 AM
@hichris1234 One filter maybe to add to SmokeDetector, if it's not there already, is question bodies that end with a non-markup hyperlink. Almost all of tonight's spam fits that form, I don't really see many non-spam post that fit that form.
 
@hichris123 *
@JasonC Btw that would only work if SmokeDetector was able to get the entire post body, which it can't. My Firefighter thingy can, but I'm not completely done working on it yet.
 
@Doorknob I see that becoming a problem if we have any biology related SE's.
 
or health-related even
 
6:52 AM
It only has 3 results for title:testosterone though
(3 results in the history of its existence)
5 on fitness
 
how sensitive it is, though?
 
@JanDvorak How sensitive is what?
 
@Doorknob Oh I didn't realize it wasn't grabbing full bodies.
 
That would sound wonderful out of context
 
@Doorknob how much spam would "testosterone" pick up?
 
6:55 AM
@Doorknob Lol
 
@JanDvorak I've seen plenty of it, surely more than 8 posts
 
What about "muscle"?
 
@JanDvorak 225 results on fitness
Three in the past 2 days
 
... why didn't SD pick that up?

@Cupcake if you're using Chrome this might be useful, you can take full page screenshot with it. :)
 
user163250
@ShadowWizard I'll need to read the source to make sure it's not full of any malicious code.
 
Oh em gee thanks so much @ShadowWizard for that chrome app!! I've been looking for it through out my life!!!
 
user163250
I generally don't trust Chrome extensions.
 
user163250
Because they've been known to carry malicious code in the past.
 
7:48 AM
@Cupcake Just the extensions?
 
@Unihedron no idea if you're serious or trolling but you're welcome anyway :)
@Cupcake you also read the source of the OS? ;)
 
Totally serious. Saw it in the past, no clue where to look for it ever since... xD
 
@Unihedron Google "page screenshot", first result. That's how I found it.

@ShadowWizard I think my OS is a little more trust worthy :P

Q: Is voting to balance in the spirit of the site?

JimThe other day I saw an answer which was ok. Not great but not bad. So no reason to upvote or downvote. However the answer already had a single downvote. I felt this was unfair so upvoted the answer to keep it at what I felt was a fair score. It wasn't until afterward that it occurred to me that I...

 
@Unihedron it looks like a good question though, that's why I upvoted. If it was a crappy question I'd leave it alone.

[ SmokeDetector ] All-caps title: CONVERGENCE OF SEQUENCE ON MATLAB on stackoverflow.com
 
What's matlab?
 
Mathematical language used primarily for data analysis mathworks.co.uk/products/matlab
 
@Ffisegydd Thanks. Never heard of it before.
 
One of my teachers insisted we had to do some image processing in mathlab
He's like "Isn't mathlab great?!"
We: Sir, we'd rather use <insert programming language here> instead :P
 
It's not an awful language/package but you have to pay for a licence, so there are better options.
 
10:08 AM
As student, paying is not an option
Heck, we had courses in photoshop, illustrator, dreamweaver (yuck), after effects... All over the course of 3 years
Sude, you can get a student lisence to try that software, using your student email
But that licence is only valid for 6 months.
 
consider that a free extended demo version
 
Our teachers literally told us: "I'm sure you all know where to find the software required"
 
TPB?
 
Exactly
The student licence was not an option, because it'd expire too soon. And there's no separate per-product licence.
 
"I'm sorry, but my conscience doesn't allow me to do that"
 
10:13 AM
My conscience doesn't mind some TPB when it saves me thousands of euro's on software that I mostly use for school.
Sure, I still use Photoshop and premiere / after effects...
but the rest?
 
use gimp
 
I kind of never used the stuff I learned from School in my life ever, except for the Exams...
 
Gimp sucks
It's almost PS
 
@Cerbrus wat?
 
Shhh. MS Paint is overpowered.
 
10:15 AM
Well, sucks is a bit of an overstatement
 
@Cerbrus go on...
 
But I find PS easier to use. And that's coming from someone that exclusively used gimp before having to obtain PS for study
That said, I'm more of a casual user
 
user202362
gimp & PS have similar features ... but gimp is free
 
Similar, yes
And PS is free too. cough
 
What about MS Paint? :(
 
10:18 AM
Paint is OP
Should be nerfed
 
^^
 
@Unihedron its single best feature is multitouch support
and... that's it
and ribbons. It does have ribbons.
 
But...multitouch > everything ! Just like how 3D movies > every other movie!
 
Any way, I don't make money using the software
When I do... If I ever make enough money using the software, to pay for the software...
 
then you still steal it?
 
10:20 AM
Which is unlikely, since my job doesn't involve the software
If I'm making money with it, I buy it
But now it's just minor personal use
 
does that include OS?
 
My current PC came with win7
So that's legit
