8:00 PM
@ShadowWizard not that many anymore
we started directing folks to the help center, that cut the traffic a LOT
 
@Gerry anyway, better version which isn't case sensitive: data.stackexchange.com/stackoverflow/query/660337/…
 
Looks like 54 in the past 30 days
which is just tiny from what it was
 
user315433
Yeah, I did the same... need one moar alex.
 
lol
going to create a sock
 
user315433
Exercise: find the most common female-sounding name on SO.
 
8:02 PM
@Shog9 indeed... good for you! :)
 
OTOH, there are like a dozen owner requests deletion flags in the SO queue right now
That... Is ever-green
 
user315433
And supposedly automatic.
 
post deletion
As I said, folks care more about getting the evidence of their past crap off the Internet than they do about q-bans or attribution.
 
user315433
Ah, that. Anyway, looks like Sarah (800) is the most common female name on SO, followed by Sara (791).
 
user315433
Note: this is based on full name matches, no splitting into first and last.
 
8:10 PM
@Shog9 Unsurprising
Most folks from overseas don't actually know they should attribute
Yes, I'm also talking about people from my region
Ugh
 
@Gerry Sadly, the most commonly used name by women on Stack Overflow is "user...".
(Probably.)
 
@Shog your folkness leaked into my messages. Stop polluting my "people" with "folks"
@JonEricson Most probably
 
@M.A.R. "people" is what easterners say when they're trying to be dismissive.
 
Dismissiveness successful
 
@JonEricson doesn't sound very feminine to me. ;)
 
8:13 PM
"Listen, folks: we need to get our shit together and make this work."
vs
"Listen, people: you need to get your shit together and make this work."
 
@ShadowWizard Would you prefer if it were "useress"?
 
@M.A.R. yup. SE should scan the user and according to this use proper default name.
 
@Shog9 I can say "peeps" whenever I need to sound like CMs
Or, hmm, "blokes"?
 
imagining a future where @M.A.R. is a CM
 
'tis the season for roast peeps
 
8:15 PM
@ShadowWizard GAAAA stop imagining
 
@M.A.R. no can do
I just imagine things
 
Pours water on @Sha
 
I've never had a peep s'more.
 
imagining the water evaporating due to extreme heat
 
@Andy they're quite good
 
8:17 PM
@Shog9 Image caption: This is how seasonal change affects sticky bunnies
 
I mean, if you like burned sugar. And who doesn't?
 
@Shog9 the sugar, I guess.
 
And the flame, maybe
 
it's gone through worse

> I have spoken to the Vice President, to the Governor of New York, to the Director of the FBI, and have ordered that the full resources of the federal government go to help the victims and their families, and to conduct a full-scale investigation to hunt down and to find those folks who committed this act. -- GWB on Sep.11
 
8:17 PM
Who'd like to be a tool of torture?
 
@M.A.R. oh, many people
 
user315433
Still don't get how someone uses "folks" in this context.
 
@Gerry "Texas"
 
@Gerry I read that "a full-scale invasion"
 
@Shog9 I like burned sugar with my chocolate
 
8:18 PM
@Gerry you start to use a different f-word and then remember where you are
 
@Gerry it's GWB.
I'm sure Obama never used "folks".
Probably Trump too.
 
Obama isn't a CM
 
@ShadowWizard First result on Google is this question on Quora: quora.com/…
 
More like a CEO
 
Trump's an easterner. He'd use "people".
 
user315433
8:21 PM
@ShadowWizard 52 matches on en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Barack_Obama
 
@Andy oops. lol
 
8:35 PM
Alrighty, I should sleep
Night
 
 
2 hours later…
10:52 PM
Morning
@ShadowWizard ooh, the guys who do matrix?
@ShadowWizard the latter is the standard spelling, though people spell their names differently for various reasons
 
@Shog9 i tried deep frying them once. the result was something like this.
 
@JasonC 0_0
You did dip them in batter first, right?
 
the batter dipped ones were successful, but not as humorous in conversation
ps what i learned from deep-fry-all-the-candy day: nutter butters, hands down for the win.
 
11:08 PM
lol
My mom would probably freak
also other than my dad most of us don't have a sweet tooth
(Parents both have diabetes, and high blood pressure.)
 
also, do not deep fry gummy bears. not sure what i was expecting, but, yeah, fail.
