@user12986714 What indications do you have that this is spam?
 
@Makyen Very old question with multiple upvoted answers, multiple links to a single channel, recent video, low view, low subscription, new user
 
@user12986714 Next time, if it may be unclear to others why you're reporting a post, consider using the optional reason parameter (!!/report [post link] "reason in quotes")
@NobodyNada Would you have any objection if I moved the recent username used on Meta.SE from the watch list to the blacklist?
 
1:25 AM
@gparyani none at all
 
@user12986714 I'm not saying it's not spam, but at 97 subscribers, 2.8k views (on one of the two videos) and 3+ months since posting that video, puts it beyond where I feel it's reasonable to say definitively "this is spam". It's definitely NAA, and likely spam, but not definitely spam, IMO.

@user12986714 If that was the only one included, or even better, the only one in the channel, I'd be much more likely to agree with "this is spam". It's just that with more videos that have existed for longer, more subscribers, etc. it starts being significantly more likely that there might be someone that just happens to be a fan of the channel.

Rob
@NobodyNada OK, I don't know how I would have connected the two without your last comment. Thanks for your answer; answering under my comment (in MS) would help future viewers, if you wish to do so.
 
@Rob Sorry for the confusion. You can actually see the message I was replying to if you click the little reply arrow, but I definitely should have provided more context especially after so long.
 
Rob
No problem, too many conversations at the same time. That comment is a reply to SmokeDetector, which (in my case) gets posted at the link in my prior comment; another user also questioned the history, suggesting that other contributions elsewhere were positive. --- I see you've added a comment, that is helpful. Thanks.

@SmokeDetector Watchlist is (?i) by default, so it is not necessary to care about upper vs lower cases
 
@Mast Just FYI: All watch and blacklist entries are case insensitive, unless you explicitly disable the i flag to make them case sensitive. For example, (?-i:ThiS iS cAsE SensItIvE).

@Makyen Oh, thank you. Ordinarily regex can be quite picky about that.
 
np. It makes things a bit easier.
 
I imagine.
I thought one would have to specify re.IGNORECASE in Python regexes to have that feature, but Smokey manages to do it without it seems. TIL.
Seems there's more tricks.
As usual, it's regex after all...

@tripleee Naturally, but I don't understand how changing the case is going to help with that. I can understand putting the proper domain in it for a blacklisted-website and a space between them for blacklisted-user. But what about the casing?
Oh, I just realized not all blacklists may be case-insensitive.
> The regexes for the keyword-blacklist and watchlist have \b prepended and appended to them prior to testing against post bodies, titles, and usernames. For both of those lists, the i and s flags are set (case insensitive and . matches anything).
That's only 2 lists.
So for the watchlist it doesn't matter, but should they be moved to the real blacklists eventually they'd have to be made more specific.
 
yeah, depends on whether you expect the watch to graduate to a general blacklisted keyword or just a username
I was sort of assuming the latter but for a keyword, we do want to catch variations in capitalization
 
It would make sense to blacklist both the user and the website, I think. Which requires 2 different regex.
