@Doorknob If you have a problem with Math.SE...
I thought it was a good post... it does contain a question. Yes, the author is upfront about the reason for posting it.
And the answer by Hurkyl is very nice.
@Doorknob the heck with that title
@Braiam Edit!
12:22 AM
Out of all the crap titles on that site, this one needs to be edited? Not feeling it.
@CareBear Really, it seems like a forum thread. Discussion, no clear point... which is what chat is for.
@bjb568 I got no idea what he's asking through
There are hundreds of "calculus question" titles, which are far worse.
I've for now, flagged it as unclear, since there's no problem to solve nor defined objective, apart of sharing admiration for a guy
which is NG
0.13 <= 0.121 // true?
Okay, I edited to tone down the "this is not a question" aspect.
12:32 AM
@Braiam Is that a question you wanted to ask? You could post it on Math.SE.
@CareBear actually is software versioning not integrers
But in software versioning 10 comes after 95, so who can tell.
nah, I can get by removing the point
btw, it's true
Surprisingly, @Braiam's flag got one CV in support. Reviewers voted 3:1 to leave open. (I expected a shutout.)
12:38 AM
is very unlikely that 4 users vote at the same time unless someone post it in chat
This is a review queue on Math. It moves fast.
there were 4 users just now, and there are still 2 review tasks pending, yeah, I totally believe you
If anyone's familiar with the site Quora, I've been very impressed with it. ... looks like the daily be nice to new users question
@Braiam How could it possibly be an int?

@Braiam Is that a question you wanted to ask? You could post it on Math.SE.
12:48 AM
Isn't it a decimal? Ints are like, the things without dots.
@bjb568 err... I meant that they aren't normal numbers
so, Math wouldn't help
Eh, everything is 1s and 0s.

When you ping someone, make sure it's something important
^ I would love that should be in the "be nice" newbies need to know
1:26 AM
Software versioning can be confusing. It depends, whether to indicate it as pure number (0.13 > 0.121) or tokenized (0 = 0 --> 13 < 121)
1:38 AM
actually with version numbers you have to compare the groups of numbers, not the entire version string (0 = 0).(13 < 121)
agree, that's what I meant actually
@AndrewT. isn't that spam through?
I dunno, it does not advertise anything... blatantly nonsense though
Anyway, I've "Other"-flagged it
Poked a few mods. ;)

@CareBear acknowledged. Will do better next time.

@CareBear thanks for finding that, I was hunting for it a while back with no success.
Wow, that sure looks suspicious, that low-rep user answering a crappy lower-rep user's question within fifteen minutes.
Prepare to smite Yosemite questions today...
@AndrewT. not sure what that is , but I'm not prepared, out of supplies

Is there a way to watch the state of spam other than reloading the page?
(These two meta things seem to be one flag short, grr).
Hm, looks complicated. I was imagining going through API.
API notices deletion quickly, nice. (One of two is left)
5:42 AM
There's a per-question websocket, but it doesn't ping you with deletions
The API claims one-minute caches, which isn't okay for the "I'm typing a comment to a deleted answer" use-case

at this time of day, must I say
Is it valid to ask others to search and find the meta post or help page for you? meta.stackexchange.com/questions/242197/…
Wait, no, that's an utter piece of crap. Calling it very low quality would be a total disgrace to all of the other very low quality questions on MSE.
@InfiniteRecursion re that question in particular, I'd say there's no such canonical
@JanDvorak good, so it's non-answerable in that case
I suggest answering it in a way that makes that question the canonical

Must it be edited recently? :?
It's a "Code edited on answer" if it helps
Weird, it only shows up on that one answer which got edited today, never seen it before, and it doesn't show up on past answers that meets the criteria even.
@Unihedron that comes as a red blue notification in the inbox - xyz edited code block in your answer

I didn't.
