[01:30:15] <n1> hi Bytram
[01:30:25] <Bytram> n1: hat tip to ya!
[01:30:59] <Bytram> humidity and temp have dropped here... much less uncomfortable! =)
[01:31:02] <Bytram> how ya doin?
[01:39:32] <n1> doing alright
[01:39:40] <n1> glad to hear you're a little more comfortable
[01:39:48] <Bytram> nice to be able to say it!
[01:40:01] <Bytram> don't get me wrong... it sure beats scraping ice off my windshield!
[01:41:03] * TheMightyBuzzard pelts Bytram in the ear hole with a snowball he saved in the freezer
[01:41:29] * Bytram refreshes in the coolness of the lobbed item
[01:41:58] <TheMightyBuzzard> yall ever get Xyem all trained up in edity stuffs?
[01:42:20] -!- n1 has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
[01:42:29] <Bytram> not sure... I thnk he got interested, then you kinda nabbed him, and haven't seem much of him since.
[01:42:45] * TheMightyBuzzard points at him

[01:42:59] <TheMightyBuzzard> n1, yall ever get Xyem all trained up in edity stuffs?
[01:44:04] <n1> can't recall where we got to with that
[01:44:10] <Bytram> IFAICR, he got trained up with UI, did a couple practice runs, but hadn't really had much practice beyond that... in a pinch I'm sure he could chip in, but would like to see some more practice... there's stuff we do that only makes sense from a hands on perspective.
[01:44:23] <TheMightyBuzzard> knod knod
[01:44:37] <Bytram> Not so much the technical aspects, but more of the site's 'feel' and the community's history and that kind of stuff
[01:44:44] <TheMightyBuzzard> roger
[01:44:54] <Bytram> Shirley you jest!
[01:45:30] * TheMightyBuzzard swears by his pretty floral bonnet to end Bytram
[01:45:45] <Bytram> ROFLMAO!
[01:46:22] <TheMightyBuzzard> oh ya, yall two got any time tomorrow or the weekend to go over a new draft of spam rules?
[01:46:47] <Bytram> I had today off, but I'm working the next two days.
[01:47:22] <TheMightyBuzzard> okey doke. i'll pencil ya in for 15m sunday then.
[01:47:59] <Bytram> best thing I can suggest is to give a few examples...
[01:48:23] <Bytram> e.g. SPAM as in unsolicited business advert -- give a couple examples of those.
[01:48:36] <TheMightyBuzzard> did, that didn't work
[01:48:52] <Bytram> e.g. SPAM as in drivelly text -- give a couple examples (e.g. time cube)
[01:49:33] <Bytram> not sure where the Deuteronomy / young bride posts fit in.
[01:49:59] <TheMightyBuzzard> repetitive, offtopic
[01:50:26] <n1> which are already covered under troll and offtopic mods
[01:50:41] <n1> thats where the problem comes in i think, there's room for crossover in the interpretation
[01:51:06] <Bytram> just be aware that what is meant to you by a term may not have the same meaning to others -- examples are KEY
[01:51:20] <TheMightyBuzzard> s'not a troll though. it's not designed to illicit a response.
[01:52:59] <TheMightyBuzzard> anywho, it's bedtime for me. have to do this later.
[01:53:38] <n1> i'll still stand by what i said yesterday, if 50% of the content of your comment is 'we dont want no tards here' ... by many peoples measure, that falls into offtopic incoherent rambling/drivel
[01:53:54] <Bytram> I'd concure with that
[01:53:59] <Bytram> *concur
[01:54:00] <TheMightyBuzzard> nothing incoherent about it. just objectionable.
[01:54:30] <Bytram> objectionable? that is a value judgement -- heck half what you post could be considered aobjectionable
[01:54:31] <TheMightyBuzzard> it makes sense, it's just stupid and designed to aggravate.
[01:54:52] <TheMightyBuzzard> Bytram, half what i post gets modded troll
[01:54:56] <Bytram> I'm exagerating, yes, but tyring to make a point
[01:55:08] <Bytram> so, troll, not spam... right?
[01:55:14] <TheMightyBuzzard> which is fine. we don't police any mod except spam.
[01:56:28] <TheMightyBuzzard> but seriously, see above re: bed
[01:56:36] * n1 hat tip
[01:56:37] <Bytram> to me, SPAM is (1) same post submitted MORE THAN two times without changes (2) commercial solicitation.
[01:56:47] <Bytram> TheMightyBuzzard: laters -- sleep well!

[10:48:37] <takyon> hi
[10:48:56] <takyon> I'm about to submit a "Planet Ten" article and I would like it merged with the Planet Nine article that's in the sub list
[10:49:59] <takyon> I also added an article to the Planet Nine article notes since the source on that one is the scriptwalled Forbes
[10:57:43] <takyon> I guess they could be run separately too but I'm not sure how much sense that would make
