[02:08:04] <Bytram> TheMightyBuzzard: hiya! Before you go making changes to the moderation drop down list box, please take a look at the comment I made to the journal article: https://soylentnews.org
[02:08:05] <aqu4>  ^ "3SoylentNews Comments | moving "spam" in list to avoid accidental spam mod"
[02:08:32] <TheMightyBuzzard> no rush. not going to happen yet. will do though.
[02:09:14] <Bytram> glad to hear it; thanks!
[02:11:00] <Bytram> tl;dr: Drop Down List Boxes can be manipulated with a mouse and/or keyboard; the described problem is actually the defined behavior for the control when using a keyboard. Code does not need fixing. User expectation was incorrect/
[02:14:16] <TheMightyBuzzard> true but it's annoying and i'm looking to change the behavior with some js
[02:18:59] <Bytram> Annoying, yes, at first until I understood how the control was supposed to work. I've not had any problems since. If you feel you MUST do it, sure as hell make it an option in preferences, and it should be opt in, not opt out.
[02:19:52] <cmn32480> pop up box: You are about to mod this post SPAM, are you really really super sure?
[02:20:10] <TheMightyBuzzard> no, pop up boxes are ANNOYING javascript
[02:22:52] <Bytram> TheMightyBuzzard++ you got THAT right!
[02:22:52] <Bender> karma - themightybuzzard: 1
[02:23:02] <Bytram> dishes; biafm
[02:30:44] <Bytram> back
[02:31:59] <Bytram> okay, on second thought, I'm still against implementing any change to the DDLB (Drop-Down List Box) behavior. Please read the full comment that I posted there before contemplating any changes. There is a LOT more there than meets the eye!
[02:32:37] <Bytram> If it looks like a duck, and waddles like a duck, one would expect it is a duck, until it says 'tweet' -- don't present a known UI element that behaves differently than it should.
