Although I don't get many stars, many stars are gotten by others in response to my messages. For example @reg got 5 stars today just from that.
Well that tells you something, does it not.
Speaking of telling us something...
Shog9 on March 22, 2012

In “Why Can’t You Have Just One Site?” Jeff wrote about the rationale for creating three sites instead of one, and the process for determining where a question belongs:

Is it really so hard to figure out which community you belong to, and thus, where your question belongs? Ask yourself this:

what is your job title?

which community do you consider yourself a part of?

what are you trying to accomplish?

You can use the same mountain to go downhill really fast on snow — but it’s plainly evident to the participant which culture they consider themselves a part of, “skiers” or “snowboarders”. …

@RegDwightѬſ道 It says I am the one with the true star powers.
> Finally, be extremely reluctant to migrate old, answered questions. The votes and answers on these reflect the opinions and work of the community where they originated, and in most cases they’ll be somewhat out of place elsewhere – you want your greatest hits to reflect the best that your community has to offer, not someone else’s.
So that is why we got those SO questions from 2006 migrated here!?
@WillHunting You are the voter of stars. Admit it.
@RegDwightѬſ道 I didn't even know there was a 2006. I must have skipped a year.
@Robusto The truth is, I have not favourited a single question or starred a single message in chat till now.
11:06 PM
I'm not sure Rob can handle the truth.
And you know I never lie.
I try not to handle the truth. Except with gloves.
It's like his entire Weltbild comes crumbling down. Have pity, man!
You misspelled Weltanschauung.
Of course there are times when I star and then unstar something to see its effect.
11:07 PM
That happens in a matter of seconds only.
So technically you have starred things. You Clinton.
These have stars upon thars.
Five-pointed stars, no less.
Communist stars. Painted green.
Those are communist environmentalists.
Children beware!
11:10 PM
Here one has a star and the other doesn't.
I bet he will soon enough.
It must be contagious.
It's Dr. Seuss, so, yeah.
I wonder if there's Dr. Suaer as well.
You mean coitus?
I also wonder why 30 minutes into the war nobody has fought on either side but me.
@Robusto I don't get that one.
Explain yourself, old man.
11:14 PM
Just testing you, Turing-wise. makes notes
Subject doesn't understand random jokes.
Coitus is not Turing-complete.
It'll do until Turing-complete gets here.
@Robusto Why do you say that subject doesn't understand random jokes?
makes more notes
Why do you say that makes more notes?
11:15 PM
hides notebook from test subject
Uh, nothing.
I agree.
Interestingly, no entry for süßsauer.
11:29 PM
I sense you're getting cross with me.
Check your qualia.
Theodor Seuss Geisel (; March 2, 1904 – September 24, 1991) was an American writer, poet, and cartoonist most widely known for his children's books written under the pen names Dr. Seuss, Theo LeSieg and, in one case, Rosetta Stone. He published 46 children's books, which were often characterized by imaginative characters, rhyme, and frequent use of trisyllabic meter. His most celebrated books include the bestselling Green Eggs and Ham, The Cat in the Hat, One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish, Horton Hatches the Egg, Horton Hears a Who!, and How the Grinch Stole Christmas!. Numerou...
Anyway, later.

If not, I will stop making Dr. Seuss allusions.
Holla. You guys having a tiff?
I am having a bmp.
Rob is posting random links to Wikipedia, it seems.
Perhaps you can explain how he gets from suaer to coitus?
He just wouldn't tell.
11:36 PM
I was pondering that myself.
Except you are excused cuz native speaker ladeeda.
I think maybe it was contagious —> coitus.
But I didn't see how the timing went.
That would be moar sensibel tho.
I was just going to say that the timing was as transcribed.
Each of us directly replied to other's comments.
When I said "contagious", he replied it must be cause it's Dr. Seuss after all.
"Here one has a star and the other doesn't."
"I bet he will soon enough. It must be contagious."
"You mean coitus?"
Hm. I can see your angle.
But that wasn't the timing at all.
We had long moved on to Suaer.
11:40 PM
Maybe he was typing "It's Dr. Seuss after all" while you were typing "It must be contagious"?
Doesn't really make sense.
He wouldn't reply "It's Dr. Seuss after all" to "I bet [the other one] will [have a star] soon enough."
"Suaer" is "sour"?
@RegDwightѬſ道 He might. Maybe.
@KitFox Kinda, yes. Seuss -> suess -> German for "sweet" -> German for "sour" -> sauer -> suaer.
OK. I didn't check your links, but I thought I remembered that sueß was sweet.
Needless to say that Rob will know that in his sleep.
I have a nice picture of Rob in the process of tuning his qualia.
11:45 PM
I like you, @Reg. You have the loveliest pictures.
I strive.
You succeed.
Don't you pressure me.
Now there's nowhere to go from here but down.
11:47 PM
That was a statement, not a directive.
Maybe Rob was thinking of that Monty Python sketch.
The German restaurant?
The famous German composer?
Neither has coitae's in it.
Ah yes.
Well I can only say that I like this video's title better than "funniest Monty Python sketch ever", which is what it's labeled elsewhere on YouTube.
11:50 PM
Ah. "Saucy" I love that word.
I have an odd feeling of deja vu - I may have reported this before but the "welcome" box for non-logged-in users has text overflowing at the bottom.
Every time that gets reported with a different box, they just remove the box from the design.
chuckle so it's not unknown then, okay.
You'd be surprised how many boxen this site has in petto.
Hmm. That one doesn't have "coitus" in it. Which was that then? Damn.
11:54 PM
It does have intercourse.
Erogenous zone.
heh. The reason I'm here is I wanted to ask if "word identification" or asking if a term exists is allowed on the site - just a question that came up the other day and I'm not sure if this is okay here.
You can ask in here.
FaQ says Usage, word choice, and grammar which it could be...
The line can be blurry.
11:56 PM
Okay - is there a phrase to describe a relationship between a gay guy and straight girl, or gay guy and lesbian, to "appear" as they are a straight couple to "save face"?
The straight one is a "beard."
I think it might have come up in a Glee episode a few series back but I'm not a Gleek.
(If you want me to ask on the main site and it's okay for me to do so just say).
I think it can make an interesting question, as this is not something you can just look up in a dictionary.
And if it was on Glee I suppose it must be an established term.
