@BenCollins since SE runs on MVC, has the team dealt with the security updates to MVC 2/3/4/5 yet? Any idea how it affects production environments? stackoverflow.com/questions/26406877/…
@Stijn looking
@InfiniteRecursion "muscle building" and "muscles building" are not added to the spam regex. Will add it.
Thanks @ProgramFox
@Stijn we're on 5.2, so we're unaffected
3:30 PM
@BenCollins lucky :) thanks for taking a look though!
@Undo ^ New SmokeDetector revision to pull.
@JanDvorak Oh the irony. Someone has wrote "TypoScritp" in a question.
@JanDvorak en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TYPO3#TypoScript check the example. What a horrible thing
3:44 PM
@JanDvorak TypoScript is a descriptive language...
it's not even worth to be called language...
or script for that matter..
define "language"
it's just a configuration in bad disguise.
config file languages are still languages
config file languages??

@JanDvorak Don't. It's a trap!

@Undo so you can start Lojban.SE?
@Bart I'd love to have that around
@Bart The world needs it!

@Bart I think I actually proposed that on A51 once, but I can't find it now
3:56 PM
@Undo It was there, but it has been removed.
That was mine.
I think
Although should I be able to see it if I was the creator?
@Undo Not if it has been deleted, only if it's closed.
My "Belgium" proposal got deleted too because it didn't have any activity in a month, and I cannot access it anymore.
Reading the transcript, You people seem to be stuck on owls (?!). So: area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/79047/…

Huh. Yeesh, I was sure I did something around a lojban proposal
why wayback?
@JanDvorak The original proposal has been deleted.

Q: facebook app style hide header bar when scrolling down, show again when scrolling up

user2921557On the iphone app of facebook, when scrolling down the header bar shrinks and hides. When scrolling back up it is shown again. I want to replicate this but also add in another div which follows suit. I have created a simple fiddle to show what i have tried so far: http://jsfiddle.net/0z6tqqyk/2...

It's the grammar awareness season already?!
we're only at swapping letters, and not at words swapping yet ;)

Well, my bot has to check answers, and it has like 700 terms to check against, so. (And I'm using my own rubbish chat messaging sys, atm)

@Undo Quick! Become a mod on MSE!
It seems the community team has it figured out of mSE for now. I can't say I don't want to be an mSE mod, but the site certainly doesn't need me :P

It's a CMS for PHP
Two of the world's worst things mashed together :P
(I guess that's what WP is too)
to create a site that's literally the largest spam magnet across SE.
Well, except maybe Magento
MSE gets slightly less, but they also stick much less.
4:48 PM
That was only true because Spam Review got deleted.
@JanDvorak Because we have Oded.
@Undo even those deleted by flags drop much faster
There's more of us, yeah
Why is Drupal such a spam magnet? The traffic isn't that great, 23k/day.
We don't really know

Maybe "Drupal" means "post spam here" in Elbonian.

That is an awful, awful job. You could not pay anybody enough to do it. If you find someone to do it then they are not going to last long. It can only be done by crowd-sourcing such a job.

the bang?
@hichris123 Sorry, empirically @Pham does a better job... :S
@Unihedron eh. Pham has more fp's. :P
8:03 PM
@hichris123 only because your bot ignores them
yay war
@hichris123 at least the ones posted into the tavern are 100% accurate
@JanDvorak ... could you explain what that means?
@Unihedron eh, true, but I'd rather have fp's than spam laying around.
@hichris123 your bot can't learn from user reports
8:04 PM
@JanDvorak oh, yeah. I manually fix them... ish.
@hichris123 your script has a lot of FNs
@hichris123 your bot isn't written in .net
@Unihedron nor is mine
@JanDvorak Part of that is because I'm only looking at the title... and the drupal spam seems to change the title all the time.
@hichris123 And MSE spam as well
I was just kidding. Your bot is awesome @hichris123 :)

-> add: 10](?i)wh(at|o|ere|ich) (are|is)( the)?( best| great(est)?| fast(est)?| cheap(est)?)? (product|service|company|brand|manufacturer)
So, support "which", and "manufacturer"
@CareBear Every SE site, but I'm looking for spam. If Arqade titles are the same as spam titles... there's something wrong. :P
@LynnCrumbling Great, thx! (I may as well give you command access).
>>add user 161974
8:42 PM
User added.
@Sam is this PURELY for spam, or does it make sense to also append library|tool|software (you get the idea)?
We have separate filters for LQ/offensive stuff, each term needs to be filter specific.
You could just add more stuff to the LQ filter, if you wanted. But that particular term is for the spam filter.
@sam Ok, I may ping you at some later time wrt how commands work. Trying to knock out something before my work day ends atm.
See here for a full list of commands.
8:46 PM
@LynnCrumbling ^ There's everything you (should) need
@Pham Why do you talk in code formatting? :/
I originally did that so people could differentiate if it was me of the bot talking (when I used to run pham on my own account).
