You know why I originally signed up for Linode? Because I wanted to do class products on my own server, rather than use my college's infrastructure.

@Mithrandir what do you mean 'broken'?
Or do you mean in the sense of auto-reporting?
 
@angussidney yeah
 
@angussidney that could be longest standing bug in Charcoal history. We know the problem lies somewhere in the Smokey/MS connection.
 
Actually, Undo thinks the opposite

SENTIENCE HAS BEEN ACHIEVED
 
@NVZ I'm not sure if there is any research available on that, but given the size of SO compared to other sites, it should see more than 20% of the total spam on the Stack Exchange network.
In fact, Ask Ubuntu sees more spam because it has a higher TP-rate than Stack Overflow.

@SmokeDetector please no shouting in the house.
 
@NVZ you don't. I think Stack Overflow would see more spam, proportional to its size, when registration wasn't required like it is on most sites.
 
@Glorfindel we can find the date for the requirement and check if there was a drop...

Yes and yes. Though the main reason is not spam reduction, but low quality question reduction.

SO is not the only site on the network that requires registration though.
