@Magisch Undo turned off the experiment (i.e. reverted it to 3), but it hasn't been deployed yet, so nothing has changed since the meta post

@angussidney I've seen a bunch of 2's yesterday
 
@tripleee tis' true every time I think "I should investigate if we should watch that" or blacklist that you'Ve already done it
usually before I even think that
 
in Charcoal Test, yesterday, by tripleee

I deployed that feature yesterday
it would be nice if Halflife was smarter about what is actually already blacklisted but it doesn't give me a crazy amount of false positives
... so far at least

@angussidney is the rate limiting chatserver-wide, or per room?
 
My current understanding is that it's per-chat-site
Let's test this
 
@DavidPostill It was deleted before Smokey generated the report.
 
Interesting, the sandbox ones got rate limited but the charcoal-test ones wern't
 
10:38 AM
@NogShine Maybe, but we lost some spam data as a result. We should never lose data.
 
This time, the charcoal test ones got rate limited, but the sandbox ones didn't
Hmm, looks like I'm being limited in all of them
 
@DavidPostill yeah, Smokey not being able to post chat messages shouldn't influence the creation of a metasmoke record.
