[14:49:22] * Bytram is deleting submission: https://soylentnews.org
[14:49:23] <webscale> ^ 03SN Submission by bitstream: VBLawGroup = SPAM
[14:49:34] <Bytram> with accompanying reason:
[14:49:46] <Bytram> Thank you for pointing out the 'spam' posting to a user's journal. Others have noted it, too and we have had discussions on how to handle it. We are tracking this concern and have an idea for a solution on github: https://github.com Staff has had a couple long discussions on how to handle this kind of situation in a general case. If we were to remove this posting, that would put us in a situation where
[14:49:46] <Bytram> we were censoring people's discussions and that runs counter to our mission of promoting discussion. (What you find worthy of discussion might be someone else's spam... and vice versa.) So, not a simple problem to solve but we have some ideas that we are investigating. Cannot promise a timeline, but do know we are aware and working on it. Thanks again!

[14:50:27] <webscale> ^ 03SN Submission by -- OriginalOwner_: Obvious Spam on the Site's Front Page
[14:51:02] <Bytram> it's from OriginalOwner_ aka Gewg_
[14:51:09] <Bytram> cannot reply; no message provided.
[14:59:49] <nick> dont know how easy to be implemented but... journals dont appear on front page unless 1) user has commented on articles and 2) has positive karma
[15:00:16] <nick> with the idea that if you spam comments, you'll be downmodded and journals wont show up to everyone
[15:00:36] <nick> positive or 0 karma i should say
[15:10:46] <Bytram> .
[15:11:10] <Bytram> nick: meet me in the 'other' channel
[15:11:25] <Bytram> oh, nvm
[15:11:52] <Bytram> nick: did you read the github issue? https://github.com
[15:11:52] <webscale> ^✓ 03Qualification for display in "Most Recent Journal Entries" rehashbox · Issue #279 · SoylentNews/rehash · GitHub
[15:12:23] <nick> not yet, i will now though
[15:12:29] <Bytram> k
[15:12:52] <nick> not very good at reading dev type things, just come along to make life difficult
[15:13:23] <Bytram> You're not that good at being that bad!
[15:14:32] <nick> well what juggs suggests is pretty similar to what i suggested, although it goes a little too far
[15:15:02] <nick> in my opinion anyway, if you need a karma score of 5, it might take several comments for someone to get there just by being unlucky
[15:15:22] <Bytram> we had QUITE the discussion on it back in the other channel -- would suggest reading it
[15:19:12] <nick> will check it out later, need to make something to eat
[15:20:05] <Bytram> nod nod

[15:30:32] <nick> that MAME story has become a pain in the ass
[15:52:03] * Bytram was cught up in merging a 'Go' story.
[15:52:07] <Bytram> *caught
[15:53:15] <nick> i was going to ask last night, wtf is 'Go'
[15:53:24] <nick> i read TFA and came up none the wiser
[15:53:38] <nick> and googling "Go" didn't seem like it would be very helpful
[15:53:50] <Bytram> that's why I've been caught up with the story; addded a bunch of background from wikipedia
[15:54:00] <Bytram> give me a couple more minutes
[16:01:59] <Bytram> okay, starting to see word soup. someone else's turn on the 'Go' story
[16:02:33] <Bytram> there is an abrupt transition following the link to the NYT article :/
[16:19:48] * Bytram adds a brief expansion of MAME acronym to story
