@ProgramFOX My fault, kinf of... earlier SD would throw exception and restart when encountering backoff. Now it just sends this message and goes on about its business... running into backoff again.
 
Better than no message anyway.
 
I optimistically thought that bodyfetcher had backoff-respecting logic in it already...
 
Perhaps we need some implementation that keeps the backoff in mind. Or do we have that already?
 
No, that's the problem.
We don't even access that field of response although it's there.
I propose the following: GlobarVars.WaitUntil variable, the earliest time we can access API again.
Updated after every API fetch. If backoff is returned, it is set to now + backoff. Otherwise to now.
 
4:45 PM
Good idea!
 
And I guess the way it'd be used is by adding extra sleep before api call if needed.

A: A centrallised (multi-site) community-controlled globbing blacklist

Tim PostI'm kicking off an initiative to bulk-up the spam prevention layer of our shields. I designed the first one, and I'm not happy until spam is only something that people going fishing for it actually see. Call it .. my own pet peeve, after being a moderator on Stack Overflow for a number of years...

 
I was typing quickly...
 
What do you think of handling backoff via "don't call API again until this time" variable? After mentioning this (above) I thought I would just go and do it, but then saw the threading business... would it matter than different threads update this global variable on their own?
 
The threading part could be hairy, but unless two threads update the variable at the exact same time...
Because I included a check for if the new backoff would be smaller than the old one.
 
9:57 PM
Thanks! While I was at a meeting, you were actually getting something done...

[ SmokeDetector ] Blacklisted website in answer: Command and Conquer: Generals Zero-Hour on Windows 8? by NID on gaming.stackexchange.com
[ SmokeDetector ] Blacklisted website in answer: Technical Difficulties Running C&C Generals/Zero Hours on Windows 8.1 by NID on gaming.stackexchange.com
 
Literally copy-pasted the same answer
seems legit
 
Yeah, but I don't know anything about games or Gaming site; is advice on "zero hour cracks" legit there?
The thing looks a bit complicated for a simple spam flag; I'm writing a custom one.
 
Just out of curiosity, is there anyplace where I can see Smoky's list of blacklisted websites?
 
You'd have to ask Undo
 
Oh, blacklisted websites, not users
 
@Norma cool thanks
 
@SmokeDetector del edit suggested
 
10:45 PM
I am back and am, by all accounts, still alive
!!/location
 
@Undo temporary nano server
 
YES!
This might kill me, though
 
Metasmoke...
 
@msh210 Strong meh from me at this point.
@Norma oh yay
Something is wrong there. Maybe I need to just update everything and hope that fixes it

Yay! Metasmoke is back up. :)

@BrockAdams User removed from blacklist (5828428 on stackoverflow.com).
 
I'm going to pull Smokey back to the closet; we'll probably lose stuff in the blacklists/logs/etc over the last few days
 
11:21 PM
I'm planning to ping someone about this on Monday ("is this even something that could possibly happen").
@AwesomePoodles We don't really have that many false positives on the reasons that we're confident about. Thing is, we're not targeting 0% false positives, we're mostly targeting 0% true negatives. There are a few reason/site combinations that I'd be confident trusting it with spam flags on its own. — Undo 12 mins ago
 
@Undo I saw your comment and deleted mine.
 
@BrockAdams Ah, I never even saw yours.
Camping has, evidently, made me blind
Oh, you're Awesome Poodles? Man, site-dependent name changes get me every time
 
@Undo I'm Sparticus Awesome Poodles. :)
Grrr. Chat formatting is such a pain...
 
Okay, switching Smokey back to the closet...
 
@BrockAdams Use three dashes.

Restart: API quota is 9999.
 
yay new API quota
 
@Undo If you had just waited 25 minutes, it would rollover at midnight UTC. :)
 
11:35 PM
@BrockAdams I think we decided that the API rollover is at a different time, though
 
@Undo We since learned that it now rolls over based on the first call of a given key + IP combination.
 
Huh, interesting
That makes sense, I guess
Seems like a weird thing to use database space for
 
Yeah. It's like the tax/business year, but for API's !?!?! 8-)
 
Why does Smokey have the "black magic in question/answer" reasons anyways?
 
Lots of spam uses that on certain sites.
 
11:43 PM
Huh.
 
Perecentage-wise, "Black magic in title" is one of the most successful rules. "Black magic in username", not so much.
 
Haven't really caught enough posts to see if it is effective though :P
metasmoke.erwaysoftware.com/post/9452 appears to be the only one it's caught so far
 
@Undo Have you decided which reasons will get a post auto-flagged?
 
We'll be in big trouble if anyone ever makes a library called Black Magic though
 
@quartata Yeah, we split out the rule separately and the inconsiderate bastages stopped using that kind of spam as much. :)

!!/test helpfulskincare.blog.com
 
> Bad keyword in body, bad keyword in title, bad keyword in username
----------
Title - Position 8-16: skincare
Username - Position 8-16: skincare
Body - Position 8-16: skincare
 
@quartata The rule is already turned off on a few likely sites, for that kind of reason.
 
Okay... but it doesn't match website pattern because of the subdomain. Quite unusual for them to use this thing.
What's blog.com anyway?
> Start your blog at the best possible Internet real estate. You’ll get an address that looks like you.blog.com. It’s the virtual equivalent of your own island in Dubai, mansion in Monte Carlo or a Manhattan flat overlooking Central Park.
 
@Norma A newer version of Myspace?
 
Meh to the overlooking Central Park thing.
Looks like a version of blogspot.com (which is also occasionally used for spam).
 
11:52 PM
Huh. NONE of those options particularly excites me. In my dotage, I guess.
@SmokeDetector f and gone
