^^ This guy is answering the same questions more than once and it's kinda confusing.
 
Also using a different account each time, to make it more confusing.
 
Some of the content in the answers is nearly identical, too.
 
maybe someone should mod-flag it
I can't right now tho
 
this should be sooo much better

this will take more thought because I'm unfairly increasing size of the space

Where did you get that data from?

What kind of algorithm is this even?

@ByteCommander One to avoid too much public discussion of, if that's alright -- it might be worth taking it to Channels though
 
sure, would be interested.

@ByteCommander Looks like a maybe slightly modified but still principally correct Bayesian classifier
 
10:18 PM
I guess this is not the right place to ask for an ELI5...
 
A Bayes filter will catch things where the frequency of your tokens (characters or words) is different to the frequencies of the same tokens in a standard corpus.
In theory could be used for spam - your standard corpus is the set of good posts, you use tokens as words, and the whole thing is based on the assumption that some words or combinations of words appear more or less often in spam than in legitimate posts.
 
and here it seems to compare against a standard English character distribution if I see this correctly...
 
Happy Passover/Easter/Weekend to all!

fuk?
seems pretty common as part of usernames
 
I am actually proposing a new PR as we speak
 
fp by WELZ
 
@ByteCommander this is why
 
github.com/Charcoal-SE/SmokeDetector/pull/1938 if anyone wants to provide their thoughts
 
10:43 PM
ok - super lazy here - how do I put a word on the watchlist?
 
it's !!/watch word or regex: !!/watch w\w?rd
 
@WELZ yeah, but seems to me like someone based a blacklist on MS data only instead of checking back with SE
 
always good to remember that MS is a biased source
 
!!/watch jigson
 
10:44 PM
@YvetteColomb Added jigson to watchlist
 
so if the word is part of a github link, will it still show up?
 
CI on 3816131 succeeded. Message contains 'autopull', pulling...
 
10:45 PM
I've put website on the watchlist. I thought for some reason a keyword was different
 
@YvetteColomb only when blacklisting
 
ah ok
 
Restart: API quota is 16001.
 
@ByteCommander MS is biased and SE is (very basic) hard to get the same kind of search functionality
 
10:52 PM
@WELZ You should have used the regex search, this one looks even better metasmoke.erwaysoftware.com/…

:43721432 I'm currently getting a lot of timeouts trying to load FIRE for that post.
 
@Makyen welcome to my world. And you wanted to say it was something about prefetch :p
 
10:57 PM
@K.Dᴀᴠɪs I was only talking about the difference between SOBotics and here. MS timeouts have been an ongoing issue over months.
 
@Makyen good to know. I always wonder if it's my connection
 
imo it's an MS issue.
 
When I noticed the failed FIRE loads, MS is usually acting up at the same time
 
I suspect that some of the timeouts are associated with search activity on MS. These corresponded with @K.Dᴀᴠɪs posting a link to a search, which multiple people probably clicked on, and it took a considerable time to load. I've also had times when I've run long MS searches where people have reported timeouts here. This all may be somewhat coincidental, but it probably contributes to the overall loading on MS.
 
11:03 PM
@Makyen I wonder if searches can be cached (for example, with the links). Maybe MS can create a copy link button with a ?cached=True argument that would prevent people who click the link from rerunning the search.
 
@K.Dᴀᴠɪs Almost always. For development, I have FIRE report AJAX errors. Delays in FIRE responsiveness are almost always associated with delays in responses from MS. Where it doesn't show anything, its almost always associated with the request timing out.
@K.Dᴀᴠɪs That would be good.
 
11:15 PM
Ideally fire'd display a "waiting on answer from ms" somewhere
 
@Magisch Yeah, I've already added that to my list of things to implement. Providing no visual indication of the fact that the click was detected is confusing to users.
 
@ArtOfCode If it helps, you may want to look at Bayes's law in the "odds form"
I find that helps a lot when thinking about it
 
you assume I know of Bayes' law at all :P
 
I'd prefer if you did ;-)
 
11:30 PM
despite how much I talk about it I'm mediocre at statistics, so I'll leave your education to others more qualified

@SmokeDetector disregard. I've been having issues with my mouse double clicking things and I think it is clicking spam or something when I drag my mouse up >.<
Yes, time for a new mouse :)
 
@quartata uh... you

read more carefully
that was not a question, that was a statement
