I think the IDNA spec forbids this anyway
 
Yeah I was about to say I didn't notice any markings.
 
there's a twist, the original IDNA2003 was more lenient and is still in relatively common use, whereas IDNA2008 definitely forbids stuff like this but didn't get officially adopted in many places
there is no whois registration for the IDNA one, but there is one for empiremarket with a regular e
so I guess they were probably just trying to obfuscate it

Q: StackExchange's OAuth login broken - identifying an HTTPS request as non-HTTPS

RobRecently (as in, the last few hours - however, it may have been broken for a few days), I've been unable to login via Stack Exchange for a third party application with Stack Exchange's OAuth support. When attempting to login, I'm presented with the following error screen: Transcription of the ...

 
@Stormblessed In general, you can ping any admin. If we can't solve it, any of us should be able to ping the right people.
@Stormblessed This looks like the problem. It appears the issue is on SE's side. It's unlikely there's anything we can do about restoring the ability to login via SE. If you have not set an actual email and password, we may be able to set an actual email address for you and send a password recovery message to it. Beyond that first time setting a real email address instead of the default one put in the database when you sign up via SE, you will need to ask Undo to edit the database.

user381237
oh yeah, probably. Thanks
 
user381237
@tripleee what's with the ?-i:^ $
 
the !!/bisect command doesn't exercise many rules which are hardcoded, it just tests the lists
@Daniil (?-i:...) makes case significant within the parentheses
^...$ is a regex anchor to match the whole user name
 
user381237
8:41 PM
So when blacklisting usernames all of that should be used in all cases?
 
user381237
Sorry for all the questions by the way
 
sure, ask ahead (but I'll be going to bed soon)
 
user381237
@tripleee So when blacklisting usernames all of that should be used in all cases?
 
the username blacklist still defaults to general regex, but yeah, to specifically match a single user name you want to make capitalization distinct
@Daniil no, the opposite -- fnord matches FnOrD (because of how the regex is applied in the code) but (?-i:fnord) matches only lowercase
in other words, the case distinctions are significant, instead of ignored
and fnord without anchors matches defnordification but ^fnord$ only matches the literal word, no embeddings in broader contexts
 
user381237
So blacklisting my username Daniil would be (?-i:^Daniil$) ?
 
8:45 PM
on the other hand if you really wanted to you could blacklist all of us with !!/blacklist-username . (though that would get rejected pretty quick :-)
@Daniil yeah exactly, with the decorations it doesn't match daniil or dAnIiL or Mr. Daniil S.

naa- feedback received
fp- feedback received
 
@Daniil yeah, if you wanted to match it all-lowercase instead and no caps, that's how you'd do it
 
8:47 PM
user names are a bit of a corner case, for URLs and domain names and product names we want the regex to match variations in capitalization

[ SmokeDetector | MS ] Potentially bad keyword in body (1): How to bulk convert Base64 to images in an Excel file by Iman Ghavamabadi on superuser.com
fp- feedback received
 
@Daniil In the vast majority of cases we use the whole thing. With a regex, it's often just as important, if not more important, what your regex rejects, as it is what the regex matches.
 
but there are still cases like cuss words which we want to detect in user names regardless of capitalization variations etc
 
8:49 PM
For usernames, we try to be as specific as possible for multiple reasons. Some of those reasons are: A) Getting it wrong means we've targeted one or more innocent users. All of that user's posts will be reported. That's really bad if it's not an account that's actually spamming. B)There isn't a good way to test for usernames across all the SE sites. Because of the reasons, we try to make sure that the username regexes are quite specific, even if that means we're not catching everything.

@Makyen I see, thanks

user381237
8:56 PM
Just incase you flagged it as such
 
@Daniil The duplicate reports are an indication that more than one SD instance is currently active. Under normal conditions, only one SD instance should be active at a time. The rest of the operational SD instances should be in standby. The !!/location command causes all active instances listening to commands in the room to report their instance name. We normally then put all but one in standby. Usually, the one that has been running the longest is the one which is left active.
 
user381237
@Makyen ah, I see. So the mayken one was put on standby is because it was last on the list?
 
user381237
!!/location
 
@Daniil teward/Osiris
 
user381237
 
9:05 PM
@Daniil If by "list" you mean the messages sent by SmokeDetector, then no. Each of those two messages was sent by a different instance (on completely separate computers in different areas of the world, although most instances are in the USA). The order of those messages doesn't matter. You can go to the SD status page and click on each instance to see a graph of activity for that instance.
The one that has been active the most over the last while is the one we will normally prefer stays running. The reason for that is that there is some state information which is specific to each instance (e.g. user-blacklist; notify list; recently reported post list; user-whitelist; etc). We generally want to keep the instance active which has the larger amount of recent information.
@Daniil Thanks, retracted.
 
user381237
@Makyen So teward/Osiris was the first reply printed, so it means that one has been active for longest?

@Daniil no -- as Makyen already said, the order in which they print is completely unpredictable
 
user381237
@tripleee so how do you know which one has been running the longest?
 
you go back in the transcript and see which one most recently came up with something like "received failover signal"
 
user381237
9:13 PM
So you saw this message and stopped it? chat.stackexchange.com/transcript/11540?m=52400325
 
that's one of the reasons Smoke Detector reports here when it starts in a particular mode
pretty much, though now that I review the transcript I guess I should have shut down Osiris
 
user381237
So the one with "received failover signal" was running longest?
 
though they have been coming up during the day so it's not like any one of them has been up for a very long time
there's a new failure mode I think, we used to see a different pattern

@Daniil There are a few ways I could interpret that question. If you mean the "failover signal", that's sent by MS when the most recently active instance hasn't been heard from in X period of time, then: All operational instances ping MS once a minute. The instance that is given the failover signal is the first one to ping after MS decides that it's been too long since it heard from the instance MS thinks should be currently active.
 
user381237
9:29 PM
@Makyen is there an easy way to find out which one was active the longest apart from the graph?
 
@Daniil The graphs are the easy way, unless there happens to be an obvious entry in the chat transcript. If MS is operational, it quickly becomes easier to look at the graphs than search through the transcript.
