[ SmokeDetector | MS ] Manually reported answer: Search a text file and print related lines in Python? by Python MAster on stackoverflow.com
 
@AJ if you choose to set up a virtualenvironment (venv) when setting up the project, the python interpreter and packages will be copied. If you don't choose to, then it won't be duplicated and hence the project will use the main python interpreter. If you're not sure, expand the external libraries section, and next to the Python item it should tell you exactly where the interpreter is stored.
I recommend this article if you're not familiar with virtualenv: dabapps.com/blog/introduction-to-pip-and-virtualenv-python

it's beginning to look like we ought to blacklist javatpoint.com metasmoke.erwaysoftware.com/domains/21717
 
Yeah, but I double-checked the FPs and I'm still convinced they're false positives.
Well, as convinced as I can be without moderator-only information.
I had prepared a custom moderator flag in case something suspicious would show up:
> It seems javatpoint.com is busy spamming Stack Exchange: metasmoke.erwaysoftware.com/domains/21717 Often, the posts themselves have some value. This one: stackoverflow.com/a/50816411 clearly fails to mention affiliation, but I suspect this user belongs to the same company and is a spammer as well. Maybe one of you could do some digging into the PII to confirm?
 
Unrelated: is there an existing poicy on meta which describes how we should handle posts with the question in the title then gibberish in the body (to meet the character limit)?

@Vogel612 are the word boundaries intended? Because they are automatically applied in the watchlist regex.
 
@Vogel612 there's no need to add the \b; Smokey automatically appends it to any item in the watch- or blacklists.
 
12:12 PM
Usually we just watch bbestitsm\.wordpress\.com
 
@Glorfindel yea I added them intentionally.
but I wasn't sure about SD adding them, so there's that
 
@angussidney I'd think it's obvious to simply edit the title into the body
 
but I think it now only matches \bbestitsm.wordpress.com\b

@ArtOfCode there's a task in the admin report queue which needs the developer role to complete, I'll leave that one to you
 
@angussidney shouldn't the admin role have all powers, including developer?
 
12:22 PM
@AshishAhuja the developer role is currently only assigned to Art and Undo, and to assign it Undo has to manually edit the database.
 
ah, okay then.
 
It's restricted because it gives access to logs and a big red deploy button, both of which are security risks
However I think it would be a good idea to expand post deletion to admins, considering that we aren't just using it on test posts

@ArtOfCode your thoughts on expanding the ability to delete posts to admins as well as developers?

12:28 PM
@ArtOfCode of course, but they aren't used particularly often
 
@angussidney generally no problem, I'd just want to have some standing guidance to keep as much stuff as possible

@Zoe I'm requesting that a feature be removed from an existing fun command.
 
you are not explaining why you think the current behavior is a problem
 
naa- by tripleee
 
@gparyani That would involve adding more code to the current command.
 
Zoe
@gparyani There is no feature
 
9:29 PM
@tripleee "The blame command is supposed to find real, normal users." - GitHub
@Zoe The feature is that Smokey picks and blames itself. I'd like that feature removed.
 
Zoe
It picks a random user regardless of which user, adding code for excluding users (i.e. smokey) would require more code. Hence the teams post
There's nothing to remove, to exclude some profiles it needs more code
 
@gparyani why is it "supposed to" do that, by whom? I still only see an opinion, not a rationale
 
@tripleee It makes no sense for it to blame itself.
Or at least change it to "It's my fault".
 
@gparyani why not? I frequently blame myself
 
"It's SmokeDetector's fault." - SmokeDetector
 
Zoe
9:32 PM
So?
 
It's tripleee's fault. Sigh
 
It talks like Elmo from Sesame Street. Better to just say "It's my fault" or just not say that.
 
Zoe
The code picks a random user from the users list
Finding mentions of itself would require another call if it does mention itself, which would mean more, potentially buggy code, and unnecessary network calls.
 
as long as you are not providing a compelling argument as to why the current behavior is wrong (data is lost, kittens die) the "not too much fun" argument applies here; we will not touch code just for a dubious aesthetic concern about a completely tangential feature
and probably not continue this discussion
 
Closed the issue.
