@cVplZ no, not really...will let you save the stars for your retirement
@KevinBuchan he didn't misunderstand. This answer is purely promotional - it doesn't need to relate to the question. Please flag as spam. — Jan Dvorak 8 secs ago
Question is spam seed too
what's the meta post banning FRF, again?
Yup, it's part of a coordinated campaign to spam file recovery tools to Stack Overflow, Super User, Server Fault, and other sites on the network: meta.stackoverflow.com/a/269868/19679 . They've been getting progressively more creative with their spam, now seeding questions with one account and answering with another. The real problem is that reviewers are usually approving their spam now, so I have to sweep through every few days and remove the spam that made it through. — Brad Larson Oct 4 at 21:34
Q: Suspicious pattern of questions/replies

Steve RindsbergI've noticed a pattern in StackOverflow and on another forum I participate on ... a user asks a question, always related to difficulties with corrupted PPT files, and within a short time, gets an answer with vague suggestions, some of them incorrect or irrelevant, and a link to the same site or f...

@InfiniteRecursion Should it be flagged as spam? The question

@JanDvorak gone
9:50 AM
how do you guys see that instead of just "upvoted posts" to select audits, it could be "upvoted post by high participation users in the post tags"?
this could de-anonymize voting
"hey, this is a C# audit. @jonskeet why did you upvote this?"
err, no
I mean, if X of users of the top Z% by participation in Y tag upvoted, select that as audit
Also, it might be hard to compute
Top x users by reputation are usually rep-whores
that's why: where tagscore > Z or tagpost > W
@JanDvorak tags score/post, not reputation
sounds interesting

I just took a ride through the [minecraft] questions on Arqade. Most of them are lazy questions asked by people with zero effort and never responded to critiques in the comments.

author edited in a link claiming a solution - is it spamlink? stackoverflow.com/questions/26754537/…
@Pham Author added code
I'd say it's a plain-old link-only answer-as-edit
So... Rollback edit and teach author to post answers as answers, not edits - even though the question was CLOSED - Then flag the answer as VLQ because it was a link-only answer? sounds like a helpful plan

ok i just want to make sure that I am (here) at right place or not.
12:31 PM
@ShadowWizard Yes and was very awkward if I not say disgusting. But you were not clear with me from first, you just needed to say we are some busy people here and its not a chat room, instead of that some directly insulted me with "annoying". first I thought so its ok, but now I think they could say your purpose in other ways. As I said just to inform me about their job here. anyway Good Luck, Keep working
@Ahmad o/
@Ahmad Ooook. Sorry you feel this way, I don't think we got anything more to say to each other. Bye!
@Ahmad It is a chat room. Both users and developers are present. Not sure where you're getting at.
12:35 PM
@AndrewT. o/ too. but I realy afraid to say more, to get another ...
@Ahmad relax, don't take it too personally.
@Ahmad I've never seen @ShadowWizard to be rude. I also saw you ask the same question multiple times and you kept asking even though you were given the answer many times by many different users. It's ok, please ask if you have a question , but don't keep asking/pushing for the same thing if you don't agree with the answers you receive.
@AndrewT. I did, unfortunately, they less give reasons, and keep one confused till something like that happens
12:37 PM
@Ahmad Reasons are reasons. Don't judge someone elses' reasons, either listen to them or don't.
@cVplZ I just asked different things, as I thought I am chatting, but not one thing several times
Should this really had been removed?
I don;t really talk about the voting system, or etc. I gave up, whatever you like, but I say about some behaviour here, they were first welcoming while there was something with them. I just didn't realize, then suddenly became repulsing

I kinda made a mistake flagging, but the question is why there's two :(
Jun 24, 2013, but comment/answer left on Jun 25, 2013 ?
the time/date indicates when I flagged it
but how would you flag this comment a day before it was posted?
because the time/date there is indicating when I flagged it, for example
@Rafflesiaarnoldii Si
@cVplZ oh man just realized that, hmm not sure
yea, not sure, maybe you could start a bug report, would be interesting to see what's going on
