"Pavlovian reward zone" -- ha ha, right on the mark. SO has evolved into a massive echo chamber / circlejerk. Pointing it out automatically triggers a "circle the wagons" defense. — Robert Dodier 10 mins ago
 
@TGMCians Thanks. :)

@hichris123 already done
 
Oh, @animuson's here.
 
user163250
Not the first time Robert there has posted that exact same sentiment to Meta.
 
To my eyes, the button, on a line by itself is much more visible than a link. The weak contrast difference is not making it clear that it is a link - if you want to take this to the extreme you seem to want to, then all links at SE shoud be underlined too! — mplungjan 10 hours ago
Oh look, he finally complained.
 
... instead of editing out <kbd>'s, go close some questions @animuson!

@animuson It's a programming question on Meta SO that would probably be closed even on SO.
 
Probably why he's question blocked on SO.

This account is temporarily suspended for asking programming questions on Meta. The suspension period ends in 3 days.

Q: Tag burnination request: [c++primer]

metacubedThe tag c++primer seems to be far too specific and refers to mainly exercise-type questions. Tag wiki: A book written by Stanley B. Lippman, Josée Lajoie and Barbara E. One of the best books for C++ beginners. There are currently 7 questions with this tag.

Most of the observations here are correct... However, they are orthogonal to the problem of rude behavior, which is an immune defense in any established population. Also, if there was no official rep system the folks here would just create there own - again, this is just something you have to either expect and work with or... Well, let it blindside you. — Shog9 ♦ 8 mins ago

Q: MSO "Users/(Voters|Editors)" subsubmenu page selector borks subsubmenu

bjb568Click "Users". Click "voters" or "editors". Click a time span. Click a page number. For me, this makes the time span subsubmenu go back to it's default "all time" state. Could not reproduce on MSE or SO.

@bjb568 b.c weeks/months/years can go by before users hit close vote privililges.. So that's A LOT Of questions that have likely been edited and improved , thus not needing the CV anymore. So that would just burden the queue with leave opens..
 
8:58 PM
@iStimple No, not automatically. Manually CVing posts again if we really want them closed.
 
@bjb568 What effect does that have? Close votes show on the question, but what effect has that on a year old question? Both flags and cv's show up in the review queue, but since that is back-logged, neither of those will make a difference.
 
@Sumurai8 2 flags are required to get a post into the CV queue on SO.

^ Its not Oxford Dictionary domain. Down votes would make sense if the post is completely incomprehensible, not when a capitalisation is missed. We're coders, not english literature doctorates. Down votes for bad code, maybe even indentation. Or asking to do their homework. I'm here to learn about code not my grammar. I still stand by the fact that down voting on silly little grammatical errors is unjustified.

@Neo you're making a lot of false assumptions. Your first false assumption was to assume that Neeku downvoted you. The second is to assume that the rest of the downvotes that you received were entirely due to your capitalization. Though it's not justified that it is happening, I have a strong suspicion that many of the downvotes were because of the way you handled the situation (i.e. completely inappropriate email to Neeku). — Cupcake 1 min ago
