Q: Hide link formatting Firefox extension

fabrizzio_gzI'm building a Mozilla Firefox extension to hide link's formatting and show them as regular text. It consists of a script that runs on web-pages (content.js) that's activated by clicking on the extension (handled with background.js). On activation, a CSS rule is injected to hide link's formatting...

@RMunroe Haha, I'd never thought about that.
Plenty of message boards haven't survived that long though.
I’m voting to close this question because it fits much more codereview.stackexchange.com than StackOverflow. — sophros 26 secs ago

@Vogel612 Could you make this go away?
We've had spam from them in the past and they turned network-wide. Might as well clean them up from CR at least.

Q: Compile a string into a callable object in C++: a simple JIT based on system, dlopen and dlsym

DarioPToday I discovered that it is possible to dynamically load code at runtime via dlopen and dlsym (and similar utilities on Windows as well). So the obvious next step was to call the compiler through system to build a piece of code into a shared object, which is then loaded to obtain a function poi...

That's new.
Some users can be a bit argumentative.
That's not new.
Just fix the bloody mistake and get on with it.

Ah, yes, it has been posted here many times.

I mean, I screw up on a daily basis. I try to fix most of it the same day.

I think time.sleep(max(0, 10 - time_to_load)) is fine, except that it takes people a second to figure it out. If you need to go through a code review, an if may raise fewer eyebrows. — tdelaney 55 secs ago
@SayandipDutta In the current form this post would likely be closed as off-topic on CR as there is little indication of what the code does. Please don't use the existence of the Code Review site as a reason to close a question. Evaluate the request and use a reason like needs focus, primarily opinion-based, etc. Please see Does being on-topic at another Stack Exchange site automatically make a question off-topic for Stack Overflow?Sᴀᴍ Onᴇᴌᴀ 14 secs ago

@SᴀᴍOnᴇᴌᴀ mumble mumble... snark does score social points with the in-group but it's really not a good tool to get people to do what you want em to do ...
especially not if those people do not consider themselves as the in-group (yet)
good point
Staying friendly gets tedious when you deal with too much crap for too long, but it's a very good point.
It's one of those things that I tend to screw up every once in a while.
and that's why it's called "emotional labor" :)
For some reason, in my head that term is associated with women giving birth.
@Vogel612 Can you give me an auto comment for when someone responds?
6:06 PM
I think I usually argue with the ephemerality of comments, though it's rare enough I haven't set up any kind of template yet. Something along the lines of:
"Yes, exactly something like this. Note that comments can be deleted at any time. Maybe you want to [edit] your answer to include this?"
I don't think that resolves the issue you have with my comment.
6:36 PM
I thought so. StackOverflow is primarily for people who have specific programming questions or (especially) problems with code. While you might get some people to answer your question, it will likely get closed as opinion-based and you'd probably be better off asking this question on Code Review. — Abion47 37 secs ago

@Tibebes.M when suggesting users post on CR it would be great if there was also a suggestion like "Please read the relevant help center pages like 'What topics can I ask about here?' and 'How do I ask a good question?".
