@TriyugiNarayanMani It would be best if we discuss site related topics i.e., spam users,flagging etc., in this room as it is the primary room.
Also we will know about the questions asked on main site quickly. We have bots here.
@SS Yes, I totally agree on this. I can remember we used to do talking in this room some months ago.

Was it detected by Smoke Detector?
Take a look @BhargavRao .
We don't have a smoke detector bot here.
I feel that should be added.
No, Smoke detector doesn't detect trolls. It detects spam and abusive posts.

There has been spam posts too today. Troll posts abusing hindu gods.
Using swearing words
Yeah, those are already reported in Charcoal, so I'm not so sure if adding Smokey here would help. But you can also speak to the Charcoal guys and get it here.
Where were they reported? In charcoal HQ?
I'm not sure if those posts were reported, but all the detected posts are reported there
Does smoke detector detect rude comments?
That's the list of detected posts.
@SS Nope, there's another bot Heat Detector (which is only for Stack Overflow that does that).

@BhargavRao Thanks for the list.
