indeed a bait
anyway, I don't understand why recently android.se got weird questions with meta message like android.stackexchange.com/questions/97110/… and android.stackexchange.com/questions/97198/… :S
@AndrewT. another tour of stackbot?
10:07 AM
Maybe we should write a bot to spam spammers' email addresses with a nice fat article on "How to Stop Spamming".
@Sam would this be legal in your country?
@bummi I was partially joking ;)
@Sam I know ;)
I once heard of a guy that sent the entire transcript of one of Shakespeare's plays via a text massage to a spammer (since he had unlimited texts) :D

10:24 AM
Is this how it is @ShadowWizard? I dupehammer something and now you do the same? it is on!!
@bummi not a typo, but it's unclear why changing IDE could run the code.
@Bart well, as long as our hammers don't clash this should be fine :-D
grrr keys are too small
and again
Ugh, more facebook spam.
and the answer spam too superuser.com/a/871044/172747
Yahoo answers has a great algorithm for "best answer"...
10:44 AM
I thought "best answer" is manually selected by OP
@Unihedro DESC
@AndrewT. nope
@AndrewT. that would be ridiculous. What site in their right mind would allow such answers to be on top?
Ah, you're right!
10:46 AM
Mystery revealed: The person posting the "best" answer has 1502 points where everyone else had less, so it was "the best" answer...
IMHO, Stack Exchange should switch to that system so new users won't be able to farm points.

@Sam the question needs to closed money.stackexchange.com/q/43721/22839
@bummi Well, I've flagged it.
@Pham gone
Man they really should ban gmail.com emails in posts.
curios if Natasha will lead us to more OT questions ....
@Unihedro agrees
10:56 AM
@bummi The Spammer Of The Light!
Natasha is persistent
@Sam The reasoning is that spammers can't afford a proper domain for MX mailing.
Looks like that site doesn't have auto ban feature in place.... and no active mods
@ShadowWizard Whatcya talking about? We're the active the mods. ;)
11:00 AM
@ShadowWizard 3 mods, all in the US
@Sam but we can't nuke the account, and sooner or later we'll run out of flags.
@Unihedro Yeah, that and every post with a gmail email address is either spam/lq.
@Sam or they are used under # author.
@ShadowWizard True.
Hey, you have a very persistent spammer roaming your site can you please nuke the account? money.stackexchange.com/users/25061/natasha-howardShadow Wizard 10 secs ago
last seen 20 minutes ago so chance he's awake
11:02 AM
@ShadowWizard or you know, use a mod flag
@Unihedro on what? random post?
@ShadowWizard his (the mod's) post, with a link to the spam user
I believe mods pay more attention to their inbox than to the queue
"She" should have reached the automatic question ban and need a new user

Just put the final flag on last answer >-)

Heh, only just noticed this on Area 51 but assuming it's true sounds like Google want to put an end to Glassholes... discuss.area51.stackexchange.com/questions/19594/…
@PeterJ not really an end, just focus on a different market (not private people anymore)
but yeah, the proposal is quite pointless now

@Shadow, not really too keen on Google Glass. It reminds me too much of The Borg and after a few drinks could see myself thinking it was probably one trying to assimilate me and take actions that could lead to legal problems.
11:32 AM
Hololens killed Glass. Google knew that nobody would buy Glass for $1500 once Hololens was announced. It's expected to be $299, but that's unconfirmed. I'm sure it won't be $1500 though!
@PeterJ bit extreme, but yeah, I always thought it looks weird. But weird that most people can get used to :)

@bummi nice, it evaded both bots

Low Quality A (23.7%): Since 3 weeks i loking for that aslo..THANKS !!, by bob gratton, on android.stackexchange.com.
Aww, edited.
Valiant effort by @bummi but likely too late
Downvoted the reddit post.

can you even downvote in reddit??

Why are there so many people thinking AI is going to threaten the human race, when we can't even substitute a cleaner with a robot? It's like to fear the your chicken's egg is going to hatch a monster, when a) your chicken is only 3 weeks old & b) it will probably end up a being a rooster
@chmod711telkitty Robots die to water. Duh.
that too!
@chmod711telkitty eh, obviously you didn't read Hyperion ;)
you need to quote sci-fi, really?
Back to the Future told me that time travel is to be invented about now
12:15 PM
@chmod711telkitty not quoting anything just yet, just mentioning the books... the AI there is the most advanced I've ever read about, and the author is trying to explain it with realistic details
@chmod711telkitty but what time travel got to do with AI? /confused

@chmod711telkitty for this you need to first define "smarter" - in what aspect? If it's only stuff like playing Chess, AI already outsmarts any human being for a long time
12:31 PM
49 mins ago, by bjb568
@chmod711telkitty all AI is pretty much smarter than I am. Then again, I couldn't produce it, so perhaps that doesn't count.
@ShadowWizard in common sense
12:39 PM
how it's used everyday ... like 'Issac Newton is pretty smart'
@Bart thanks for letting us know ... ~_~
12:56 PM
right on spot Smokey, nice catch!
@chmod711telkitty well, this is something AI will probably never achieve, but I don't think it's needed to fight the human race. AI can extinct us all without any hint of common sense at all. :D
common sense or Your Common Sense?
lol, he's already extinct
by the way all the recent pin stuff reminded me of something
he could be in anna's apartment, kidnapping her darling cat for all I know :p

In theory, we can't star our own messages. But when a message room owner pins gets unpinnd, it's still starred by the room owner, even if posted by him/her. Is this a bug, or special power?
that's it! I know now why it's called kidnapping - it usually happens to a kid when (s)he is napping!
@chmod711telkitty oh, but she has many cats. They will band together and take all the sense out of him
@chmod711telkitty actually, it's derived from kid + nab(bing) ... yes, I am great fun at parties.
@SmokeDetector too much baba, flagged as spam.

I'd like them to explain how Linux is a failure...

why don't you use the Stack Snippets, @Mooseman?
jsfiddle is so 2013
1:23 PM
God I hate it when websites pretend as if you can only download by creating an account, but then hide a small direct link at the bottom. Damn you MySQL
Dammit people - stop reporting bugs I likeShog9 ♦ Dec 6 '12 at 20:46
@Bart mm? really? that looks like a bad design, since the purpose is to make you create an account
@Fundamental nice find! But why by all the Close Gods is it closed??! Voted to reopen...
@Bart ¬_¬
@ShadowWizard waiting for it to get in the reopen queue (hunting badge)
1:36 PM
@ShadowWizard and then what?
@ShadowWizard JSFiddle is easier to load on a phone than stack snippets
@Mooseman how come? Stack Snippet should show a single button to execute the code, doesn't it work on mobile?
@rene what do you mean? After it's reopened?
@ShadowWizard It works, but this is more minimal, imo.
@ShadowWizard yeah, what are you planning to do with that post?
@Mooseman when jsfiddle will die, there will be no way to execute the code :)
@rene nothing. I just seek justice, can't see why a valid bug report should be closed, even if by design.
1:40 PM
@ShadowWizard Perhaps, but it's still in the post.
@ShadowWizard Seeking justice? When did that became a goal on SE?
lol, admit it @rene you only try to get icecream :D
Andrew is fast
1:49 PM
@bummi gone
@bummi Surprised SE's filter didn't catch that one..
@ShadowWizard so again a not 100% spam ...
@bummi what do you mean?
@bummi The question is still too broad though.
@ShadowWizard I've to find the transcript , yesterday with dooknob

1:54 PM
> Nevermind my code, I have tried a ton of things (most probably nonsense), just posted some random snapshot for the sake of it.
@bummi oh, this. Yeah, the answer you linked to got one spam flag then Andrew clicked "delete". No big deal IMO
@KevinBrown That is the spirit :)
@Pham wow, first time I see the -100 in action. So cool.
it makes a mess in reputation history though, nobody other than us here and mods knows why the user have 1 rep now
> Post Reopened by Shadow Wizard, Fundamental, Bart, rene, Braiam
2:11 PM
@ShadowWizard Will that user have to work back up past the -100 mark? In order words, do they currently have 29-100=-71, or will they they start from 1, and immediately start earning rep?
1 is the lowest you can go
@Andy ah, so that user won't be penalized for the next 71 rep points. (well, technically, 72, but, whatever.)
@LynnCrumbling good question, I fear @Andy is right though.
When is the 100 rep penalty applied?
Maybe worth keeping watch, if he gets upvote soon we'll see if the rep increase or stay 1
hmm... let me see...
2:14 PM
I keep hearing about it, I've now seen it, but I still have no idea when it happens
yay! it does not go up!
Looks like the -100 is applied to the overall reputation
@ShadowWizard It's -71 under the hood?
oh no.... caching
@LynnCrumbling nope. I just proved the -100 is applied once, when the 6th spam/offensive flag was cast.
user got 6 rep now.
the -100 is applied to the reputation you had in the moment
2:17 PM
@Braiam yeah, like an ordinary downvote
@Braiam yes, and cap of 1 applies
@ShadowWizard Mega-downvote :p
Now it looks like SE can't do math ^
interesting, so the penalty isn't shown
@AndrewT. nope, but maybe only because the post is deleted
ah, make sense
2:29 PM
@Unihedro Please close one of two battery indicators as a duplicate. Too distracting.
@Fundamental He can't, one saves battery d:
@Fundamental ... But I was planning to make a third!
^ the user also spammed other sites, I just nuked their post on Academia.
2:42 PM
@Pham Not spam
@Fundamental You sure?
@Unihedro What does it attempt to sell?
@Fundamental What about spam defines selling stuff?
This question is effectively an advertisement (check) with no disclosure. It is not useful (check) or relevant (check) , but promotional (check) .
2:53 PM
It's not advertisement
@JanDvorak The original rev was.
@JanDvorak But it has "microsoft" in it!
@Braiam Thanks for the edit, but could you include the link to original somewhere in the post, maybe in a comment? Just so that in case an answer gets posted in one place.
@Sam nope, just a well-intentioned piece of crap
> Advertisement: a notice or announcement in a public medium promoting a product, service, or event or publicizing a job vacancy.
Not an exact fit, but pretty close.
2:56 PM
This isn't a product, service, event or a job vacancy
It's a link-only question
Low Quality A (100%): Why are these morons offering a Windows PC solution for a Mac problem?, by J R, on apple.stackexchange.com.
@Sam The user asked a legitimate question. On another site. Did not get an answer. Posted here; the only transgression was posting a link instead of copying the question. That doesn't make it spam.
@Fundamental Looking at it with that perspective, I guess so.
3:00 PM

Smokey give up, @Pham is better and faster :D

@ShadowWizard when censoring, alternate empty stars (✩) and full stars (★).
@Unihedro cool! so next time we'll see empty stars?
3:03 PM
fights the urge to post offensive answer somewhere
@Fundamental if we are going to have an argument for the link to answers.ms, better just remove it, no?
@ShadowWizard I think Unihedro means reporting ✩★✩★✩★ posts in this ✩★✩★✩★✩★✩★✩★ way.
@Braiam Yeah, guess so.
