I flagged that as spam
...where's that meta post on editing spam out of answers?
 
@QPaysTaxes the user might not know the rules about signatures.
 
@Glorfindel Which is why you comment and let them edit.
If they do, great! No longer spam. If not, great! Spam, and it gets deleted as such.
 
!!/watch agencemit\.com
 
@Glorfindel Git functions failed for unspecified reasons.
 
5:04 PM
@QPaysTaxes the problem is that we're often too fast with flagging for them to edit.
 
@Glorfindel Fair enough. I still don't see why that means you should invalidate the spam flags.
Wait hold up
Did they change that behavior? Because mine is still pending
 
I expected so.
And I edited when it was still at 0 score, if I knew there were already spam flags pending I'd be more hesitant to edit (that would e.g. depend on the quality of the answer)

are you kidding me right now
 
5:07 PM
flag was ten seconds before the edit
 
OK, the author has edited the signature back in -> now I'm flagging as well.
@Undo I meant to say 'I started to edit when it was still at 0 score'.
 
yeah, just clarifying timeline

@Glorfindel Oh, that makes sense. I forgot that caching is a thing.

@Undo I wouldn't have done that (they even tried to improve their answer, so they're showing some signs of positive participation), but that's your call.
Or did they delete their account themselves?

nice
 
Smokey is stubborn today ...
 
5:14 PM
Honestly the HEAD at tip of origin/master check fails when it shouldn't half the time
one of the reasons why I wanted to throw all that out
it's probably mad salty about some local master thing or whatever
 
Is it comparing origin/master to local/deploy?
 
yeah
or actually
it's comparing local/master to origin/master
but since we're usually on local/deploy they're not in sync most of the time
 
huh. That should work
 
that's why I made the PR that just checks out origin/master and commits from a detached HEAD
branches are for plebs anyways

we seem to be rather Solar Flare-averse which is weird because it's easily our best performing instance
we should let it run more often
 
We should probably automatically rotate every so often. Spread out the load, and ensure that every instance we have actually works.
 
5:27 PM
every week?
maybe?
 
That's what I was thinking. Every day seems too fast
 
ok running timeit on findspam was a mistake because it does like a thousand iterations and now it's doing an NS query each time
maybe I should turn off that reason for this
woop, now it's hitting a cache most likely because it's blazing through
haha
well anyways turning that off for now just because it's also logging a bunch which affects CPU time
ok apparently it does a million iterations not a thousand
mistakes have been made
> 1,000,000 * 250 milliseconds = 2.89 days
 
lol
 
except apparently it's not 250 milliseconds
I did it for 1000 iterations and it just stopped
gave me 14 ms average
although that would still be about like 4 hours for a million soooo
 
What do your test cases look like?
 
5:36 PM
> hi this is not spam psych it is agencemit.com ................................
It's not like it does any memoization so I'm satisfied for now
all I need is a baseline for comparison
so I can tell when changes I'm making are actually doing anything
 
Might be good to pull some SEDE stuff to get some length. Most posts aren't that short
Dunno, for a baseline compare it prolly works

OK so right off the bat using a callable object definitely made a difference
I can't use findall instead of finditer unfortunately so there's only one other thing I wanted to try
 
tpu- by Ferrybig
 
basically rather than using named groups and parsing the name, I'm going to use regular groups, but when assembling the regex at the beginning I'm going to parse each keyword and count the number of groups, then use that offset to create a mapping between the group number and the pattern
the problem was that it wasn't sequential since if a keyword contained a group that would throw off the count, which is why I used named groups instead
 
5:47 PM
Is it possible to run the regexes as they were before, then use the factory if there's a hit?
 
no
 
yeah, figured
 
I mean, yes. It would mean putting the post through findspam twice though
And storing two different regexes
 
eh, yeah. Ick
 
Hmmmm, only problem is that I can't use sre_parse on this since we use regex and the keyword might use things that only it supports
 
Going to have to go through regex internals to see if there's an equivalent
 
tpu- by doppelgreener
 
OK I see regex._regex_core._parse_pattern, lemme see what it does
looks like it takes something other than a string, bummer
ick ick ick
Going through regex.py rn and I'm not pleased
 
lol
 
OK on the bright side I know what it wants now
It wants some object it calls _Source and another one called _Info that stores the flags
 
5:54 PM
Something we can create?
 
yeah
_Source just takes the pattern string
_Info only needs an integer field flags
success
it returns a tree of objects as far as I can tell
it's not as nice as sre_parse which returns a list of tuples
but it's workable
...interesting
Apparently it actually stores the group count in that _Info object
_Info.group_count
that's nice
hopefully as a bonus I can squish these trees together to make the assembled regex rather than formatting them as strings
sweeeet, there's a list of branches in the alternation
I can append to .branches and hopefully nothing will explode

@quartata ...this is what happens when you mess with internal APIs
 
@Andy I think I have a bead on this - it'll probably be using an admin key for initial deploy, then setting permissions to only allow changes to the created resources.
Manual step, but should be one-time.

Nice. I'm interested in what that permission set looks like after the initial deploy
 
I am too
Question is whether it's well-behaved about updating stuff instead of deleting it and re-creating or some such nonsense
I'd expect it to be, but can't say for sure yet
 
@ArtOfCode yeah, wish we were using sre
It has a public API for this sort of thing
At any rate I figured it out

@Glorfindel You should have an item in your inbox for the TestFlight build. Really quick overview of how app works: Camera overlays little yellow dots over flights within ~30km, table view below the camera shows those flights. Tap a row to see details on said flight.

Q: How to deal with spam user posting add in their profile page?

Jiri KloudaAt our stack exchange we have some users created recently that have no activity, simply a name and profile which contains add for some car insurance quotes. How can we deal with users like that? Are there tools to report them to moderators and for moderators to flag them somehow or remove them? ...

tpu- by DavidPostill
 
Hmm, do we have any patterns that attempt to turn any global flags on?
I think that's what is causing this error
 
Global flags e.g. case insensitive? We have a few of those
 
apparently whatever crazed maniac who came up with this decided that the way to handle them was to throw an exception when you compile them to tell you to reparse them with the flag set
it's a nightmare

@Undo i.stack.imgur.com/hGp6J.jpg (the thing on the right is the moon)
It works :) I couldn't check the accuracy as the flight is gone now and there isn't another one in sight.
 
So it's working on a phone that's not mine. Awesome! :D
At 37000ft you'd probably have a hard time seeing it in the dark anyway
 
A phone that needs to be plugged in. :P
 
Esp. if there's cloud cover
@Catija That's the fun part about ARKit - you better have a charger nearby :P
Something about that visual inertia stuff eats power
 
There are some clouds right now, but I could see the plane myself as well directly (not sure via the camera, because the lights are flickering and Undo's dots compete with them – the camera fails to detect stars with magnitude lower than 0 anyway).
 
@Glorfindel The dot should be pretty close, but behind the plane by a few seconds. I want to do velocity extrapolation to fix that
Need to see if I have a timestamp to work off of, though.
planes are fast, turns out
 
9:24 PM
I can probably check when it's light, it's 10:20pm right now.
 
would be cool if someone made a version of stellarium that used ARKit
 
No hurry :) This is a hobby project; I've got plenty of planes around here.
Kinda neat when LifeFlight goes over and I get info on it
 
(it's slower, tracks better)
 
I thought Bombardier made trains, not planes ...
 
9:26 PM
They make a ton of stuff. Grandparents have a Bombardier ATV.
 
9:41 PM
Anyway, looks cool to play with and I hope to share some highlights this week.

A: strange character replacement on SO

balphaTo explain what happens here: "http://xyz.com/a/b/c" is turned into "http://xyz.com/a/b/c" The auto-linker sees this as a link to http://xyz.com/a/b/c&quot, so the semicolon is left over, and that's where it suddenly appears from. Granted, this is isn't exactly the expected result.

so you're just flagging old ancient spam that's been otherwise forgotten into the shadows and annals of time.
@DavidPostill he is?
BURN HIM
The account is too old for me to hit "destroy" but he's definitely sniped.
 
He got suspended for a week by another SU mod before I could burn him.
 
@ThomasWard Honestly, IDC if the spam is a year old; it's still spam. Low-priority spam, but hey, if you're available to nuke it, I don't see a reason not to :)
He's also probably banned from the quantity of spam flags lol
 
@QPaysTaxes I'm in a chaotic evil, pissed-off-at-everyone mood. It means I will not hesitate to obliterate him.
@QPaysTaxes he's been answer banned since eternity
downvotes operate similarly.
 
@ThomasWard ...Interesting. Previous spam flags? Or just lots of DVs/deletes?
 
@QPaysTaxes downvotes by a majority of the world, and autoflags from duplicated post content I believe. But as they're all sniped I'm less caring of it now.
Time to destroy more targets. preps flamethrowers for the flags queue

@QPaysTaxes We alway want to migrate him but the folks over on UL are to afraitd to take him (cc@ThomasWard) :P
