@Tatpurusha there's a whole slew of them on all different topics at stackexchange.com/sites
12:49 AM
@IsaacMoses @DoubleAA Even if it never collapsed, hakanaf p'sil and esev b'sad'cha can be run together easily if the f or v is bilabial. Compare Go with Tommy: he th becomes a t when said fast (if your t in Tommy is sufficiently forward, I guess).
@GeminiMan Even better: rotated a full 360 degrees, and mirrored twice!!

@yez judaism.stackexchange.com/a/34285/4682 are you planning to post your question from the comments? I am very curious about it!

I tagged this as resha, because that is the auto-synonym for rasha. But resha doesn't really fit. Should I remove it?
@YEZ Why doesn't it fit?
@IsaacMoses I dunno it's not really a discussion of what evil is. More about what a rasha can do. Maybe I'll make a tag wiki summary that includes that (tag wikis have been my recent hobby).
@YEZ I think the intent of whoever made that synonym was that a single tag can cover both the concept of evil and the persons of evildoers, which seems reasonable to me. Making a wiki that clarifies that sounds like a constructive measure.

Q: Were Amalek offered a peaceful exit?

YEZInspired by this: The Rambam in Hilchos Melachim 6:1 writes: אין עושין מלחמה עם אדם בעולם, עד שקוראין לו לשלום--אחד מלחמת הרשות, ואחד מלחמת מצוה War is not waged with anyone until they were offered peace. and in 6:4 the Rambam includes Amalek in this rule: אבל שבעה עממין ועמלק שלא...

@GeminiMan Can we do a countdown for the last 10? We're at 9990!
@YEZ Nu? So count already.
@IsaacMoses צען!
(... and it ain't me. I'm just into playing with GTranslate.)
8:13 PM
(and my spelling and grammar is probably atrocious, as my Yiddish is all from Ner Israel)
8:51 PM
@YEZ Accd to this judaism.stackexchange.com/search?q=is%3Aq there are 9992 questions already.
And just to burst everyone bubble, there are 642 deleted questions on site also.
@DoubleAA I leave it to you to sort through the search results to find which one isn't a question.
@YEZ Got it:
Q: Is Selling חמץ Legitimate?

Seth JDo you sell your חמץ before פסח? Why or why not? This is meant, in part, as a form of a survey, but also as a collection for arguments both for and against. Please cite your sources.

^^^ shows up in search but not main page
@DoubleAA ..... ...... ..... how in the world did you do that
@YEZ Set up equal results per page sorted by newest. Moved at 50 page intervals until I saw an offset. reduced to 10 page intervals, then 2 page intervals and found the odd one out.
@DoubleAA clever. If I could upvote your discovery, I would.
9:16 PM
is there a meta discussion anywhere of all the downsides of changing ID?
@YEZ not entirely sure what you mean, but perhaps this may be informative?
Q: Can we restrict the ability of users to keep changing their names?

oxbow_lakesObviously one of the things that this site encourages is the building up of reputation which is a reflection of how the community perceives you. However, after spending a while in any given tag, you can't help but get familiar with people by their SO user name and interpret their input accordingl...

@DoubleAA Nice find. So, anything locked would be in that category?
@DoubleAA Thanks - I was more looking for if anyone had changed their ID and afterwards realized serious inconveniences or unintended consequences.
@DoubleAA This includes Closed, right?
9:31 PM
@IsaacMoses it includes dupes at least.
... so we have 9431 open questions, 8422 of which are have an answer. That 8422 is a pretty good expression of the size of the valuable part of our repository.
... With SEDE, we could narrow it down further to only include questions with upvoted answers, if we wanted to get all pedantic
@IsaacMoses Are you borrowing my can-opener?
(someone needs to teach me how to do in-line linking of comments in chat.)
Mar 12 at 19:34, by Isaac Moses
@YEZ You're just the dude with the can-opener running around in the worm warehouse today, aren't you?
@YEZ ;^P
@YEZ This statement is apparently incorrect.
no, I want to do [this kind of linking](www.sample.com)
well that didn't work...
ok I need to go back to the sandbox.
@YEZ get the URL for the permalink, same as you did to repost Isaac's comment. Then do [blah blah blah](that permalink) to make an inline link to the chat message.
9:47 PM
OK take two - @IsaacMoses are you borrowing my can-opener?
@YEZ one possibly-unintended consequence is that your old name lives on in @refs in comments (or if somebody just plain used your name in text, e.g. "YEZ's answer addresses...").
@YEZ there you go. :-)

@YEZ ;^P
@MonicaCellio Ya that's one I have noticed, which sometimes makes reading old comment discussions very tedious.
@YEZ it's particularly confusing when there are multiple people who've changed names. :-) (This sometimes happens on MSO; I haven't seen it be an issue here.)
@MonicaCellio nonetheless if that is the only concern I think I may proceed.
