Aha! The URL regex is still useful, @Sam
they say that it takes 21 days of doing the same thing for it to become a habit. So I guess 100 days would be definitely an addiction?

@bjb568 When I click on  > About This Mac > More Info, it says "OS X 10.9.5 (13F34)". So I guess we're both wrong. ;)Vladimir 7 mins ago

Just made my choice for SE Gives Back. That was tough.
What was it?
What's that?
Robert Cartaino on December 23, 2013

This is a time of year of traditions and celebrations — and we have a tradition at Stack Exchange where we set this time aside each year to give back to the groups and organizations that need our help. Each year, we reach out to our moderators and offer to make a $100 donation to charity on behalf of each moderator for their Stack Exchange community. It’s just a small gesture of thanks for the tremendous amount of work every community has contributed to make this entire thing possible.

This “giving back” program actually goes waaay back to the beginning when we started with on …

@bjb568 Only charities were on the list. ;)

@hichris123 Ok that better not be a -nazi group (i.e. one that is several extractions away from actually making the world a better place, stereotypically extreme in views).

in Mathematics 2014 Moderator Election on The Stack Exchange Network Chat, 9 hours ago, by Behaviour
I know, I'll change the name to Not running for a mod, stop asking.
@Behaviour Perhaps it should be changed to "One of the few sane people on Mathematics"
Though that might be offensive...
@Behaviour Well he doesn't want to say that it's driving you mad.
So that could be taken two ways:
1. You're going mad and he's too nice to say it,
or 2. you're not going mad.

Well, I couldn't resist the temptation.
I know he'll never listen.

@JanDvorak Doesn't matter. Whole thing'll get deleted.

Unicode works here too.
Dumfries (/dʌmˈfriːs/ dum-FREESS; possibly from Scottish Gaelic: Dùn Phris) is a market town and former royal burgh within the Dumfries and Galloway council area of Scotland. It is near the mouth of the River Nith into the Solway Firth. Dumfries was a civil parish and became the county town of the former county of Dumfriesshire. Dumfries is nicknamed Queen of the South. People from Dumfries are known colloquially as Doonhamers. == Etymology == There are at least two theories on the etymology of the name. One is that the name Dumfries originates from the Scottish Gaelic name Dún Phris which means...

@bjb568 questions are meant to get closed before deletion (unless spam/offensive)
@JanDvorak Why?
Why does "Should be Improved" dispute flags?

@hichris123 false; I suggested an edit fixing the typos though.
4:43 AM
@bjb I doubt there would be a recommend deletion flag. That's really the point of closing, right?
Don't flag that Skype guy on ELU @bjb568, flag may get declined. That site is strange.
mods are rude to newcomers

@SmokeDetector tpu
@JanDvorak Registered as true positive: added title to Bayesian doctype 'bad' and blacklisted user.
@InfiniteHappiness Waaay to late.
@hichris123 No… Closing is to decrease attention and to give OP a chance to improve while preventing answers to sorta try to not give whores rep and to make it clear to everybody that the question is bad.
@Frank I don't wanna keep derailing the comments on that MSE post... Link me to your A51 association bonus? o.O
4:57 AM
You can fix the URL thing too.
URL is by far not the only thing that needs fixing
^ Is ELU mod post rude, should I edit and remove?
@bjb And what is deletion for?
> meaningless drivel from drive-bys, causing more work for our moderation team to keep tidy.
5:01 AM
@hichris123 Get rid of crap to prevent broken window and remove pollution from home page, tag pages, search, google, etc.
@bjb And so how is that different than closing? Also, if you didn't know, only mods can straight up delete a question without closing.
@hichris123 It's more permanent, it does a better job with limiting visibility, it prevents broken window better, it prevents comments, it undoes rep changes…
"on hold/closed" - this can be salvaged/edited/reopened. most closed questions will still be deleted later, but... for a case like this, I don't see the need to do the formal "close and ask nicely" dance. It's pure trolling, and no good will come of leaving even comments open. Deleted and good riddance.
@bjb But then you've declared the question unsalvageable. Which is very rarely the case (except for obvious trolling like @Anna pointed out).
Oh god youtube.com/watch?v=-DSzHcEBZ40 /r/oddlysatisfying is such a time waster
@hichris123 Ok, "this is crap DELETE NOW", "this is meh, place on hold and delete in a week if no improvements REGARDLESS OF ANSWERS", "meh, it's a bit OT so we should add a notice", "hm… pretty good, just some edits (that really should just open an edit window)", "HOORA… wait a sec, this isn't a real possibility"

~ Too much coffee is bad for you
@InfiniteHappiness Smokey will be happy if they join Lifehacks :D
@Unihedro then there is no such thing as too much coffee
Caffeine is a commonplace central nervous system stimulant drug which occurs in nature as part of the coffee, tea, yerba mate and some other plants. It is also an additive in many consumer products, most notably beverages advertised as energy drinks. Caffeine is also added to sodas such as Coca-Cola and Pepsi, where, on the ingredients listing, it is designated as a flavoring agent. Caffeine's mechanism of action is somewhat different from that of cocaine and the substituted amphetamines. Caffeine blocks adenosine receptors A and A2A. Adenosine is a by-product of cellular activity, and stimulation...

@JanDvorak let me get a coffee and then I'll read that.

@Bart people have died from too much coffee, I think, research this yahoo answers thread answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20100613145944AAlS1Ve

@rene you know, maybe it's just us... but the absence of some users from tavern and their presence in the Den should indicate that they are here for fun, and they may actually have fun pinging each other like they did in the last 6 months?
