@Unihedron let me look but don't start flagging everything please :) cc @InfiniteRecursion
I don't think it's spam at least the one you flagged. I'm looking at the others
@Unihedron not spam.
 
Sam
Am I the only one here struggling to understand what the OP's saying?
 
The one you did flagged I converted to a comment but the rest are reasonable answers with links to documentation
 
3:12 PM
ok
 
@bluefeet What's the policy on disclosing company relations for a comment like that?

^ wut
 
@LynnCrumbling typically if you have a library, product, etc that you "pushing" then disclosure would be necessary. But for those links, I don't see anything that makes it seem the person works for the company or wrote it. I don't see any need for disclosure
 
@bluefeet: My flag shows disputed, instead of declined. Aren't mod handled flags supposed to be to marked as declined instead of disputed?
 
Sam
3:16 PM
^ cv-pls
 
@InfiniteRecursion spam/offensive we can dispute
 
I think it's only spam and offensive flags that can be cleared as disputing.
 
I disputed because I can see why you thought it was spam even though I disagreed with it
and I didn't want to punish you with a DECLINE

I can be reasonable sometimes. Even though @InfiniteRecursion thinks I just like to decline flags with no reason
 
Thanks.. now I understood the difference between declined and disputed.
No @bluefeet, I never thought you decline flags without reason.
 
I thought it was @bjb568 who gets the most DECLINED flags, though.
 
Huh?

@bluefeet Sorry - I'll stop bugging you; I know you've got more important things to do :)

@LynnCrumbling but that answer again isn't spam. They pointed to the documentation in their answer.

I initiated the MSO discussion to understand your point of view for declining it @bluefeet. After reading your posts, I find your points valid and respect your approach. I didn't disturb mods with link-only answers after that point of time :)

It must be a family name.
 
@Unihedron They clearly went to the effort to start off their username with "A .. b .. c", then just got tired of going alphabetically and just started jamming keys.
 
No problem @LynnCrumbling, it's always a learning experience. She was kind and didn't decline my flag to punish me.
 
Pff, why are we getting all understanding and kind all of a sudden? Where's the outrage? Where the unjustified anger direct towards moderators? Geez, you guys make me sick.

Their "d" key might have stopped working after the jamming was over.

@TGMCians Hi!
 
@Unihedron Have you had any of the same issues this OP had?
Yes, I guess I'm venting steam, many people didn't get the votes they deserved because it's so hard to get it in. It may not be stackoverflows problem but because I am located in HK things get forced to Chinese. Clicking back from the google page brings you to expired pages, it is all just really messy — wentbackward 26 mins ago

I never see Andrew Barber around, so for any moderators - a lot of people agree that this post should be locked rather than deleted. 90k views, lots of votes, seems to have helped a lot of people. stackoverflow.com/questions/18414012/…
 
4:12 PM
@m59 "a lot of people" - made a meta thread yet?
 
@m59 Yup, make a Meta Stack Overflow post and let people discuss it.

Sure, I could. I think they'd be glad to chime in. Thanks!

I wasn't trying to accuse anyone. I only mentioned his name because I felt it would make the most sense to ask him about it, which I can't do.

Flagged for mod comment clean up.
@Revious Don't.
 
Just flag and walk away. Learn to stop talking.
 
Btw, I remember seeing this stuff from you all the time @Revious ...
 
The fact that you're of different stances doesn't deem the situation to be hostile.
 
from me?
 
no offense meant, but you seem to be bad at letting things stand...

@jadarnel27 Such is the peril inherent in unleashing a nega-star on the universe...
 
What is this, Marvel science?
 
A downstarred comment could just start a tight, infinite JavaScript loop.
 
A downstar places the downstarred message into the Negative Zone, where it will reside forever until a weak plot device creates a loophole allowing the message to escape.
 
@jadarnel27 Negastars should only be used upon no other recourse. The SE equivalent of crossing the beams.
