Is there not a reason for "repeating strings"?
 
@Mego There are several:
 
@DavidPostill None of those caught this one
 
@Mego I don't know enough about how the rules are implemented to comment ...
 
If the regex for those is something similar to (\w+)\b(\1\b)+, then that would explain it
 
@ThomasWard yep, seems to be working fine

Maybe it needs more than 2 repeating words?

Hmm.

@Mego but it got caught by "few unique characters in answer", so why bother about it?

@ByteCommander Because it's not a bad thing to have better filters
 
@ArtOfCode I assume nothing came of it yet
Maybe we should just grab a dev or shog or bluefeet or tim post
 
12:31 PM
Indeed
 
You have to decide that though
 
Dev probably isn't who we need
 
So tim post would be best?
He leads the community team AFAIK
 
I asked this before but didn't get an answer - why are we pinging a CM?
 
To get permission to cast multiple flags on one post
and to use smokey's account to do so
 
12:34 PM
Ah
 
I don't want to ping anybody if anything it has to be one of the SD managers
Like art or undo
 
@Magisch I was using the "royal we" there :P Obviously it'd have to be a mod, to either ping them in TL or superping them here

Rude and abusive?

@M.A.R. you need Tampermonkey
 
@DavidPostill Not risking a declined flag
@ArtOfCode I do have it
It just the direct link to JS file doesn't work
 
Or Greasemonkey, I forget which
 
You should link me something from Github

@ArtOfCode But in any case, we should let you / undo deal with the CM pings, right?
So no catching shog off guard in the tavern late at night
 
12:50 PM
 
@Magisch yes. It's best to stick to just one communication channel for this topic.
 
@Magisch shrug if you happen to see one around, you're welcome to ask em about it
 
sometimes I see shog or bluefeet
 
CM's aren't particularly hard to find in the Tavern

That question badly needs protection
 
@Mego Yeah. I'm waiting for his next rant. Note the question says "Are there any studies or materials that show that TNVR is actually successful at reducing cat populations" so all of his current answers rants don't answer the question
 
@Mego the entirety of Skeptics SE needs protection.
 
12:57 PM
For a few months only
 
@Glorfindel Now that would be an interesting experiment - a SE site that you can't post, comment, or vote on unless you have the association bonus
 
OMGdidTrumpsaythis.SE
 
@Mego protected questions ignore the association bonus.
 
@Glorfindel This was kind of a tangential idea
 
That is, you need 10 rep on that site to post an answer
But not 10 rep brought from other sites

@SmokeDetector k
 
My idea was a site where you need 100 rep to do anything, thus requiring that you have the association bonus (since you can't get rep without being able to post)
 
@Mego If you actually ignore the random one-rep misled user who posts a programming question, meta.SE is kinda just that site
 
@Glorfindel I'm a lurker there (I wrote an answer recently but thats about it) and the entire site is a battlefield
Ideologies clash and people cite things like foxnews or the daily caller as serious sources.
 
Are you implying FOX NEWS ISN'T A SERIOUS SOURCE?
Outrageous.

@Mego sorry
 
@Magisch I think Mego thought we were arguing, while I wasn't being serious
 
I have no intentions of "being nice" to those who are using cats to engage in bio-warfare and bio-terrorism -- on a two-fold level no less. Not only are these cats destroying all wildlife, but the 3dozen+ diseases that cats carry and spread are also doing the same. Many of them already listed as bio-terrorism agents for having no vaccines against them. The punishment for engaging in those crimes and sins against all of nature and all of humanity used to be hanged-until-dead. And you want me to be "nice" to people like that? Grow up. — TNR Researcher 2 mins ago
This guy really just does not like cats
astounding
 
CATS

@M.A.R. I didn't think for a second that you two were actually arguing. I'm just not interested in having or seeing political discussions in this room.
 
1:08 PM
@Mego Uh, just one unrelated sentence is hardly politics . . .
I mean, I would usually know when a conversation gets too political to be fruitful
 
@Mego I think some joking / tomfoolery from time to time doesn't hurt anybody
 
But this wasn't it
 
We're not staging a debate in CHQ, just sometimes I / we make off the cuff remarks or jokes about something
 
There was little chance of me and Magisch going on to ramble about what side FOX news is taking
 
@Magisch Sure, and you're welcome to that opinion. And it's clear that that is allowed in this room. But I don't really want to see or take part in political joking, so I leave when it happens and come back when there's actually spam to fight.
 
1:11 PM
OK OK
 
I mean thats your prerogative but ... seems like an overreaction
 
I wouldn't even notice there was a political debate if @Mego didn't point it out.
 
Shrugging off, moving on, whistling
 
It wasn't a debate
I made some off the cuff comment about fox news and apparently that was too political to handle
 
looked fine to me

And Brits

Is "British people love cats" really a stereotype? I'm American and I have a fuzzy kitty on my lap right now

if someone hunts my cat I'll end them
 
@Mego Dunno, don't think so
 
@Magisch Don't feed the trolls ;p
 
I wont
 
I don't mind being stereotyped in joke
 
@DavidPostill Trolls eat cats?
 
1:18 PM
@Magisch Same. Although my cat might do the job for me
 
It's a tiger
 
@M.A.R. I was referring to his comments on the cat hater's troll's answers :)
 
@M.A.R. I thought they mainly ate goats and sheep
 
Maybe trolls eat ends
So when Magisch ends trolls, they feed
@DavidPostill I'm trying to confuse people here
 
@M.A.R. Mission accomplished
 
1:20 PM
for some reason
if someone punched my cat
 
@DavidPostill Well one of his answers has gone ...
 
I'd get way more angry at them then if they punched me
 
I get upset when people don't adore my kitty
If someone tried to hurt her... Things would get ugly

Hi, I'm a mod on Skeptics. Hadn't heard of you guys before. Keep up the good work, and thanks.
 
@Oddthinking Hi, welcome to Charcoal!
 
@Oddthinking Heya! Welcome aboard!

@Oddthinking Hi
 
@tripleee The new top bar thing? I've learned to ignore it, and I didn't ignore the previous top bar . . .
 
This room houses a chatbot that's essentially a real time spam review queue
 
1:46 PM
It's not particularly good at detecting these kind of trolls, though.
 
@tripleee Oh good lord, I don't go on SO very frequently so I didn't see it until now. That thing is horrendous.
 
So yeah, it could use a little contrast.
 
@Glorfindel The cat-hating troll? Yeah, that seems out of scope.
 
At least they hate cats, not some Skeptics mod
 
@Magisch Yeah, I had just read charcoal-se.org when I came to say thanks for patrolling the borders :-)
 
1:49 PM
So you can be sure they're venting off, and prolly not gonna be persistent
 
:D someone actually making use of that website
 
@M.A.R. I've known some cats that hated this Skeptics mod.
@M.A.R. I gave them some time off to allow everyone to cool down.
 
@Oddthinking Maybe I should run for modship on Skeptics. My campaign motto can be "every cat loves me" :P
 
@Oddthinking We're enjoying the free halpful flagz
@Mego '' . . . and would therefore do a better job than the existing set of mods''
 
@M.A.R. I wouldn't be replacing them - just joining their ranks
 
1:52 PM
Yeah, 3 helpful post flags and 2 helpful comment flags :)
 
Doing a better job than the current Skeptics mod for real would definitely mean you'd make one of the best mods evar
I guess the only site harder to moderate right now than Skeptics is SO.
 
I'm getting nervous - this sounds like a pretty strong campaign slogan.
 
@M.A.R. Politics is probably also pretty rough right now

@Oddthinking Meh, you don't see much HNQ, so there mustn't be much hard work
 
@M.A.R. HNQ is almost a dirty word over at Skeptics.
 
@Oddthinking can't you just opt out?
 
1:55 PM
@Oddthinking HNQ U
 
@Glorfindel It's not possible to opt-out of appearing on HNQ
 
@Glorfindel We've asked before with no luck.
 
The most that can happen is that HNQ doesn't appear on your site, which afaik has only ever been done for MathOverflow
And they're a very special case
 
Well, at least the ability to protect questions should help a little.
 
@Mego I imagine it is very effective cross-site advertising for SE.
Someone had a suggestion of altering the privileges required for HNQ questions, which I liked.
 
1:58 PM
@Mego even better "Make Skeptics SE great again".
 
@Oddthinking It is. On the workplace, most members come from HNQ
 
@Oddthinking Yep. Though the additional traffic can have negative consequences for certain sites, overall it has very positive consequences for the network
@Glorfindel No. Just no.
 
@Mego IKR, just kidding :)
 
My modship campaign promises will include daily pictures of my fuzzball
