Conceptually, asker-dups are abusive, moderators are exception-handlers, and meta is An Abomination Unto The Lord. — Shog9 ♦ 12 mins ago

Dupe emoticons are abusive too, right?

nice catch!

@AlexisKing Seems like most of the people hat helped burn down the low qual queue have stopped helping aready... three-fitty posts waiting for review
Yes, SO beats Math in the number of daily questions by the factor of 13 (about 8000 to 600 currently). But compare this ratio to the difference between "smaller" sites, even graduated ones. Mathematics beats Theoretical Computer Science by the factor of 140.

@bjb568 that was sooo helpful thanks
Why do people argue when they already know they're wrong? stackoverflow.com/q/28999992/1864610
12:49 AM
@hichris123 True, but more importantly the question should be closed.
One-letter typo.
And that answer duplicates two others, though may be they were posted independently.
@HoboSapiens some people don't like it if someone else sounds righter than them... :P
@Frank lol
12:53 AM
True. Not a programming question. However, for me to get the answer, I would have to become a paid member, when I am not even sure if this technology will even hold for my project. For a Bronze member the only way to get answers is here, since Google reps monitor appropriately tagged questions here. — chalupa 7 mins ago
e.g. Jon Skeet?
@hichris123 I'm not sure if flagging as typo
@Frank welcome!
@SmokeDetector uh...oh... wut!
Their mods should close that question if they know what's good for them. Or users for that matter.
12:56 AM
most people don't know what they want, how much they are worth and what's best for them
@Woodface or lock it
@Roombatron5000 :<
@Woodface Or un-wiki it and protect it
@Roombatron5000 It's an exact duplicate of stackoverflow.com/questions/28997639/…, posted by another account a couple of hours ago.
1:04 AM
Yay youtube?
@HoboSapiens lol.... better to use the duplicate reason next time? accidentally chose your custom reason
@Roombatron5000 I would have done so but the other question has no accepted or upvoted answer, and since it's on a different account the duplicate reason won't work.
oh :O
1:11 AM
Anyone found any bad tags Stack Overflow tags recently?
But these are small. The tags with 100+ mostly off-topic questions are the best.
1:46 AM
Hey, guess what? I just finally finished off the 'accept rate' comments on SO.
goes off and starts on the 'acceptance rate' comments... ...
Heads up: the #stackoverflow/#stackexchange Sysadmins are doing an AMA next Tuesday (3/17) at 1PM EDT (1700 UTC) on http://www.reddit.com/r/sysadmin
I got all the accept rate comment (if I didn't skip any accidentally) except for the ones on the moderator election nomination posts.
@Frank Here's hoping none of them had useful information in addition to "accept rate" remark...
@Woodface Gonna need a reminder about that. Sounds interesting.
@Woodface nope.
2:12 AM
Just to make sure... do you have a directory called /path/to/source/Resources? — Braiam 6 secs ago
@Woodface Stack Apps has the smallest # of questions/day.
of course...
I don't know why the privilege levels are the same because it's really hard to get rep.
@AstroCB then why don't you ask?
@AstroCB But why would you need privileges there? It's not a normal Q&A site anyway, I'd let mods sort it out.
2:23 AM
@Frank I've been meaning to, but I feel like there has to be some policy about these things that I'm not aware of.
At least you get 10 per question upvote there.
@Woodface Good point, but it still doesn't really make sense to have such high privilege levels when only one user on the entire site has all of them.
Actually, he's at 19967 rep, so actually, no one has all of the privilege levels.
Well, apparently I'm tied for #3 user this month.
Hm. I'm trying to switch to other reputation leagues on mobile... unsuccessfully.
2:49 AM
I'll say NAA by gaming standards.
@AstroCB Diamonds have all privileges regardless of rep level. So the highest rep user for whom rep matters is Sky Sanders with 10.5K
@Woodface Oh; I didn't realize Nathan Osman was a mod.
3:06 AM
Does clicking "mobile" in the footer of Stack Apps do anything?
@Woodface yep
For me, all it does is "Uncaught ReferenceError: StackExchange is not defined" in the Chrome console.
^ the cause
I think that they should allow a url option to switch to mobile manually
Actually, this is independent of clicking mobile: I get a bunch of js errors as the site loads.
3:14 AM
> Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 406 (Not Acceptable)
@AstroCB can you put the support tag there, instead of discussion meta.stackoverflow.com/q/287711/792066?
@Braiam Done.

Not common with a delay of 15 minutes and no intervening message

Moody, German EBM. Best way to depress myself.

jdaitesthey will be added to your account because the account still exists in the database

Anyone else smells the strong scent of sock puppet? ^
@ShadowWizard IIRC he was suspended because of that?
@bummi yup. But on Stack Overflow. Maybe he's [censored] enough to think MSE users won't care/notice.
old habits die hard, you know ;)
If that answer will be accepted, we have our proof.
Myeah, it's certainly not a fresh new account.
;) I think the mods will have an eye on this
@bummi already flagged :)
1:57 PM
@ShadowWizard shouldn't he be casting votes from the puppets to the main account instead of the opposite?
@SPArchaeologist most likely that's what led to his suspension, so maybe he learned from past mistakes after all, and just using sock puppet out of sheer habit. Or maby he plans to upvote later when nobody will notice.
anyway, MSE diamonds can easily see if it's the same IP and nuke in such case.

Anybody think I'm not justified with my request for the users to stop commenting on my answer?
If you implement exception handling in LLVM and provide the project with a usable runtime library I'm sure they're open to moving to a better option. Currently at least the runtime library itself is still missing. So please at least try to understand the reasons behind the way things are. That aside, I wonder what you think is wrong with GCC on Windows? It often outperforms MSVC in both code speed, and language standards compliance. Oh, and the thing with Linux so's is that 1) they can be versioned internally (see glibc symbol versioning) and 2) they are usually systemwide because of that... — rubenvb 2 mins ago
