8:00 PM
the intent of anonymising my acct wasn't exactly to become anonymous or disconnected from previous actions
 
@user400654 May I ask why then? :)
 
you can
:)
 
But may I?
Of course I can... I know that :P
 
it's more of a... i'm in the process of leaving this place behind. part of it is removing me participating it from being part of my public profile
the idea was to reduce my participation... but it hasn't done that yet
If anything has affected it at all it's the constant popup that i get with every vote on meta suggesting i vote on questions more.
 
@user400654 Well, that's too bad ;) Perhaps vote on a question to get rid of it? :P
 
8:06 PM
it is unrelenting, always there, and i hate to block it because other notifications that appear there are useful.
it doesn't help
i think i'd need to vote on quite a few questions to get past a threshold or something
 
Weird.
 
which... if i go out looking for questions to vote on, i'll also find more answers to vote on, worsening the situation
 
No, a single question vote will dismiss it for a while.
...from experience.
 
i misspoke
it's this one:
> Please consider adding a comment if you think this post can be improved.
 
Oh, you need to pass a rep threshold for that to disappear.
 
8:10 PM
@user400654 Please consider to check the help center what could be improved.
 
i must have dropped below it
 
2k I think?
 
yup
no hope of going back above it now
 
@user400654 I am not much concerned about these messages, Most of the times I leave downvotes along flagging posts close worthy anyways.
@user400654 Heads up
 
Rob
It's not impossible for you to do nothing and pass 2K in 3-6 months, certainly after longer. I earn at least 20 rep/day minimum.
 
8:19 PM
at minimum it would require i stop downvoting
as i'm bleeding off 10-30 rep a day from that alone

@user400654 No, you shouldn't (desperately no). That's just a friendly remininder, you can certainly ignore, if you're sure that your voting was correct.

> Names may only be changed once every 30 days. You must wait 4 more days to change your name to, "Canonize Monica."

what about... the rule of 2?
 
good question
 
Upvotes should cost the same as downvotes, imo... like a mini bounty.
 
They do on questions.
 
@JourneymanGeek No, cost; not reward.
 
8:45 PM
They do.
 
They're both free on questions
IMO, they should be free on answers as well
 
ick
 
lol
I think they should continue to cost 1 rep on answers, on regular stacks
feels weird though on meta
 
> Most social media users want their chosen platforms free from harassment and porn.
Citation needed...
 
Just look at tumblr
Porn is all there is, and they're still getting rid of it
 
8:55 PM
No
the companies want you to not have access to the porn
because happy workers are worst workers.
 
9:08 PM
@IamMonica Wrong religion? So perhaps a bit insensitive. You might want to check first if you go through with it.
@IamMonica I ... don't want to see 'surprise porn' then? If you're looking for it, that's something else... But if I know any potential offspring of any potential other than me parent is going to use the same platform... I don't want them to stumble across it, no.
 
pretty much
though most government plans to handle it are... dumb
 
clicksafe? :P
Though that was a private setup, not government.
 
singapore has a symbolic blocklist
the brits tried to privatise it?
 
No, the brits was government. Clicksafe is/was a Dutch ISP that blocked pornography and other stuff that didn't fit religion.

Yaakov EllisYes. It is. 🙂 Tick Tock

9:27 PM
huh. Cool!
 
@Tinkeringbell it's just an innocent pun based on my name about elevating her to a saintly regard. I somehow doubt she'd be offended. Who knows, though. Maybe.
 
i'm sure people will be offended for her
 
@IamMonica Yeah, I realize it has your old name in it... Just wanted you to think about it, at least.
(or, know for sure you thought about it already)
 
I'm not going to censor an innocent joke like that for fear of reprisal. That's how the terrorists win.
Certainly, if it bothers her personally, I wouldn't pursue it. I'm simply not going to cow to people getting recreationally offended on her behalf.
 
It does seem a little in poor taste.
 
9:35 PM
@IamMonica Blegh, did you really have to say it like that? I was just expressing a concern I had when seeing it, wanting to know if you saw it too and had thought it through. There's nothing wrong with such conversations, you're acting like I already personally told you I'd reset it when you did so!
 
@Tinkeringbell I'm not targeting you personally. :) I'm just talking about the droves of people who seem to be on their toes, ready to pounce at the merest hint of impropriety. I appreciate your urge to caution. I know where it comes from.
 
@IamMonica Well, this was just me, so let's keep those droves out there until they actually do something problematic.
It helps with conversations.
Keeps them nicer and de-escalated.
 
9:52 PM
@JourneymanGeek It may be unfocused chaos because there's no structure, guidance, or interaction from the people responsible for the Q&A product. If we're not going to get that, they should say so. Meta has an over-inflated sense of its own value to/influence over SE. We could do with a reality check; so, we can all assess whether continued participation is worth it. The one-way communication isn't helping anyone.
 
Oh dear I think I've found the best custom close reason so far on SO:
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is not a computer programming question. It's a CPU design question. Knowing which part of the hardware handles the MOV pseudo-instruction has no direct impact on how your write a program for the CPU. (It may have secondary impact if you're doing microbenchmarking, but that doesn't seem to be the question here.) — Raymond Chen 2 mins ago
 
That's.... about 12 hours?
No, I left off a 0. Around 5 days.
 
10:13 PM
i have trouble quickly spotting my own comments now
 
Well I have trouble with everything
I used to "know" the people in the chatroom, in the sense of their being avatars I shou . . . spoke to
Now almost everyone feel kinda alien to me
 
*swivels eye stalk* What makes you say that?
 
@user58 GAAA I'm not taking you to my leader
 
There's no need. I am your leader.
 
And yeah, even you feel a bit more distant.
Did you happen to bike away a few miles
It makes all the difference
@user58 PfffffftBAAHAHAHAHHAHA
 
10:31 PM
for someone that has "parted ways" they sure are active
 
Rob
10:55 PM
Eye stalks.
