Why why why do policies exist that invalidate your account password every 90 days?
That just makes people pick a SIMPLE, EASILY GUESSABLE password.
Argh. =)
Am I getting paranoid? superuser.com/a/869536/172747 two post with spyhunter links :(
8:32 AM
The answer might be legit, maybe just remove the link
@bummi you don't look too paranoid on the video feed :p
@bummi Yea..... "while leaving my Mac idle" and in the reply " In addition, it will also modify registry entries and other important settings"
also no name...
Wait, the answer is a copy-paste from the given link
@JonClements video?
@AndrewT. you are more brave than me. I avoided clicking the link.
8:34 AM
Spaaaaaam. Or VLQ.
@bummi oh nothing... forget I mentioned it...
@SPArchaeologist There's Google to do dirty work :p
Search the first sentence
Well, too many copy-paste on other sites, seems spam
@AndrewT. "deploy.static.akamaitechnologies.com hijack" searched. All results are classical bogus sites "fix your pc"
no one Kaspersky, Norton or other know AV forum, no know anti malware community.
Search "deploy.static.akamaitechnologies.com has been reported as a nasty browser hijacker virus, which can act on web browsers including IE, Firefox, Google Chrome, and so on" without quotes. Some are really copy-pasted.
@AndrewT. that only add to the felling of bogus. Using a common server that many will see as a fear factor (name is strange, IT newbies may actually think it is an infection)
8:41 AM
I really meant the answer is suspicious.
there are actually two answers pointing to spyhunter
this one is also a candidate making me wonder, the link to a commercial solution was covered with a tiny url before the edit superuser.com/a/872965/172747
it goes to tenorshare. it's a spam
@AndrewT. I'm a little uncertain in flagging on SU after a decline a view days ago, SO seems to work a little strict, flagged this one nevertheless, will keep a track on other ones
8:55 AM
Ridiculously gone.
*Just to be clear: I'm not looking for software; I am looking for a solution. What can I do if sometimes software is a solution?* ;)

I regret looking on other answers on that post superuser.com/questions/853665/…

@bummi Blacklisted user and registered question as true positive: added title to the Bayesian doctype 'bad'.
@AndrewT. I did see :( but how to close the question?
9:12 AM
I tried to salvage the answers by removing the link, but now I'm worried due to editing many answers on same post
(I suggested once already)
The upvoted answer did mention to beware, so probably I don't need to remove the link
Never mind, assume I had amnesia and already forgot that post
@AndrewT. mhmmm ... might blur the tracks?

for a second I thought we had a new bot I didn't know about

@JanDvorak Who, Bart? Yeah, he's always been a bot.
Definitely too broad/unclear/too localised/no code in question, etc etc.
@Sam Closeman
Well, actually...
IIRC, @moo did create a bot to help out with CV requests.
9:31 AM

@Pham gone already
Yes, definitely.
In fact, both answers. Except the other doesn't have a link.
Meh ... not sure if the OP intends to spam there
9:46 AM
And what is this doing on WebApps? The entire thing seems like spambait.
@J.Steen close the question, it's asking for
@Bart Point. They have a previous question.
@J.Steen yeah, I flagged as off-topic. The question got what it was asking for
I should get an account everywhere so I can flag stuff...
*help flag stuff
9:49 AM
Although. Do more flags help? Isn't a flagged post a flagged post? Except when it comes to auto-effects like spam/offensive?
And it begins...
Hey, we've seen that pattern before.
Was that user nuked? I forget.
I'll check my flag history...
Nope, the account is still live, and so is my flag.
9:54 AM
Huh. Well, this should be proof enough, I think, of malicious intent... >.>
Is that the TV guy?
We think so.
The TV guy what?
Oh, his question. Right.
blames lack of coffee
Yeah, the noise questions
heard trigger word ... zombies his way to coffee machine
9:56 AM
It's an interesting way to spam, for sure.
It worked on math.
spam/train a bot.
What was that other user's profile? Have they posted more stuff yet?
@J.Steen Which one? The original, or the 2nd?
I like how it was closed as opinion-based.
Hmm. Some of his questions have been tweeted.
Oh, bio's own account. NVM
I got an "Other" flag useful yesterday with " helpful - Cannot see any evidence of it on this site." I wrote at "Contact us" now regarding these 3 users
10:04 AM
It's blatantly obvious something fishy is going on.
No matter how much good faith you're assuming.
Flagged it myself. Let's see
Yeah, 3 different users all using the same pattern..
Voting ring? Spam ring? Bot ring?
Once they get the association bonus, they could go wild on multiple sites.
One of 'em already has >50 rep.
Oh yeah, that's the one I remember.

@bummi Blacklisted user and registered question as true positive: added title to the Bayesian doctype 'bad'.
I guess the problem is these accounts are multi-site. So, if these flags don't help there should probably be a post on MSE soon.

Q: I am absolutely OFFENDED

SosukodoI find this new ability to FLAG COMMENTS on StackOverflow absolutely ABSURD and OFFENSIVE! If this is an experiment, I VOTE NO. If this is a permanent addition to StackOverflow, I'd like my account (and all questions and answers that I have contributed) to be removed from every StackExchange web...

Woot, insta-deleted comment.
Ah, deleted by owner.
The onebox should suffice, @J.Steen
@JanDvorak That's all there was? I was expecting a longer rant. =)
10:27 AM
It was a rather short one
Ranters today are no fun.
@Pham I flagged all the posts as spam. It's really spambait
This one seemed like a troll to me
He's right though. If I have some time after work I'll be complaining about this new voting feature that seems to have appeared. What's all this reputation nonsense all of a sudden?
Has there been a change?
10:30 AM
His latest comments indicate he's not really a troll - just seriously entitled and pissed.
@AndrewT. expect the next on askubuntu.com
@JanDvorak jk
This is a very angry person.
Me? Sure
Well, you too.
I meant sosukodo.

Hmm. Food truck on the corner made a killer cheese steak today.
@J.Steen That sounds good. Whereabouts?
Stockholm. ;)
@J.Steen :O
@Mooseman Jeffrey's Food Truck. They do Mexican, Argentinian, and a sort of Churasco-ized cheese steak sandwich. It's delish.
10+ hour flight? You tell me if it's worth it. ;)
11:59 AM
There's a foot of snow, the food trucks are only out for two hours every day, and in USD (I assume it'd be USD for you, correct me if I'm wrong) it'd be 9 bucks.
You tell me if it's worth it. :p
Nearly $1000 round-trip, $9 sandwich. I'll see ya next week. :p
(food is stupidly expensive here)
And you're saying it isn't in the States?
If the cheese steak is of good size, $9 is an average price here.
It's the size of, say, a Burger King whopper.
But contains more meat. Cause, fast food doesn't.
I had a cheese steak in Philadelphia. It was huge.
And nice.
Just the right amount of grease.

You do.
Do we flag answer-plagiarism?
@J.Steen "other" flag
But, do we?
Ah, to heck with it. I'll try.
@J.Steen I did it once, they deleted the answer. It was around 20 upvotes, but was a 100% copy of another

@DroidDev I've spent half a day in the newest tab of PHP, just as a psychosocial experiment. Will that do?
@J.Steen well...in that case I must say...and it is the first time I am using this word on SO, "Brother, my condolences"
My own fault. I wanted to see what it was like.
12:23 PM
@J.Steen and? Got any insights?
Aug 27 '14 at 14:07, by DroidDev
@bjb568 it has life destroying traits ;) :P
same thing goes for php
@ShadowWizard That there're a lot of... mistakes?
@J.Steen was expecting something more like "lots of crap", but guess you're too gentle :)
@ShadowWizard I try to be polite.
12:25 PM
@ShadowWizard I recommend a half hour seminar in den ;)
and you can edit chat messages 2 minutes after posting them ^^^
@DroidDev lol, that would be interesting! :D

it always is ;)
@JanDvorak ahaha, good reading thanks!
The other day, someone pointed out that the total score of the ten newest questions in the vb.net tag was -18.
12:28 PM
@DroidDev yeah, but looks like Mr. Steen is going to be much harder nut to crack than our dear @malviň :P
@ShadowWizard I actually don't think same.I think he is just holding back because of others ;)
@J.Steen yup, and I fear it doesn't end with ten, total score of newest 1000 would most likely below 0 as well. Like -1800 :O
I'll get banned if I let loose.
Just look at TomTom.
Tom who?
12:30 PM
whole year suspension
More, I think.
He's been suspended a while now.
So he talked too much?
And several times.
He was very... honest in his commentary. =)
@J.Steen nope. He posted a comment on December 16
Only on SE - are there so many aggressive older people :x
12:31 PM
@ShadowWizard Alright. Then he's been suspended several times. =)
@J.Steen yeah, first is for one day, second for a week etc. Makes sense.
@ShadowWizard Somehow, I suspect this was a custom suspension...
@ShadowWizard Generally, it's 7 days, then 30, then 365. But moderators can also input a custom duration as well.
But anyway.
12:33 PM
@J.Steen of course, there are no automatic suspensions
@DroidDev I've done that. I didn't get the job.
@ShadowWizard I meant the time span. But maybe not, considering Doorknob's comment.
@DroidDev I didn't want the job. ;)
why bother to go for the interview then?
Sometimes you go to an interview, and midway through realise that it's crap. =)
Trust me. I was still polite. But that's the gist of what I said.
