[00:27:37] <Bytram> ~tell mrpg Thanks so much for all the stories you pushed out!! VERY much appreciated!
[00:28:31] * Bytram didn't see that TMB already handled the spam mod; so went and looked... seems NOT spam to me, too.
[00:30:29] <Bytram> problem is... now that it has been flagged as NOT spam, I cannot see who did the spam mod. Instead of removing the spam mod, we should handle by adding a +1 NOTSPAM mod (available only to those with privs of... 500(?) 100(?) or more. Then we can see who handled it, too.
[01:09:13] <fyngyrz> So... I was looking for a way to make RDT's posts collapse in all cases -- I just don't want to even see them any longer. But I want to see AC posts. I even want to see posts that have hit -1, because often, those mods are inappropriate. Doesn't appear to be a way I can say "collapse all my foe's posts" Seems like a missing feature
[01:09:49] <fyngyrz> In no case, ever, have I found one of RDT's posts worth my time

[02:15:04] <mrpg> bytram: I can see the spam mod, you can't? how come?
[02:15:22] <mrpg> 02-08 05:14 * 1 1 -1 Spam f62cd realDonaldTrump (6614)
[02:18:31] <mrpg> I came to chew bubble gum and push out stories but I only found trump and aristarchus :-( nothing related to our mission statement.
[02:19:16] <mrpg> I'll go see some log videos on YT

[02:32:40] <mrpg> I like to watch videos to try and grok what really some things are. I know what's a log, but I want a deeper understanding.
[02:38:43] <mrpg> Ready, didn't get a deeper understanding but his explae with time was nice.
[02:39:29] <Bytram> mrpg: the spam mod *is* visible, so long as it has not been 'canceled'
[02:39:37] <mrpg> explae is latin it means example, I did no mistake
[02:39:44] <Bytram> after that, there is no sign of it having been done (that I am aware of, that is)
[02:40:23] <mrpg> So it was not cancelled? it was, my karma is back at 50.
[02:40:42] <Bytram> btw, I just noticed you *were* in the cat story...
[02:40:47] <Bytram> yes, it was cancelled.
[02:40:57] <Bytram> when I looked at it, it had already been reveresed.
[02:41:06] <Bytram> *reversed
[02:41:33] <mrpg> I was, take it if you want. I wasn't sure. I liked it.
[02:41:40] <Bytram> which, AFAIR, means the spam mod was *removed* as opposed to being countered by an offsetting mod
[02:42:20] <mrpg> I get it. His effects are not there but it still shows it.
[02:42:21] <Bytram> if you are still in it, it's yours. Otherwise, all I need to do is click save and it's out there. up to you
[02:42:29] <mrpg> Do it please.
[02:42:33] <Bytram> k
[02:42:49] <Bytram> done

[03:17:33] <mrpg> Let's see the queue
[03:18:30] <mrpg> I like "how exercise..." but I'm tired, sleepy, and hungry.
[03:34:30] <mrpg> I'm cooking meat with A LOT OF OIL that I'll pour on the rice.
[04:35:57] <mrpg> Ready.
[04:42:15] <mrpg> A few weeks ago I realised some people here (the website) are really toxic. All comments are filled with hate. I like to think that those are just extreme opinions, things they really don't feel. The articles are an opportunity to blow off some steam.
[04:42:52] <mrpg> I must be getting older, or humaner.
[04:43:31] <mrpg> Evrything is kill, guns, etc.
[04:44:00] <mrpg> kill em all let god sort them out. Just words I assume?
[04:44:45] <mrpg> It's just rants.
[04:47:59] <mrpg> Yes, there are stupid people, but take it down a notch.
[04:48:48] <mrpg> That was tonight's speech.
[04:49:33] <mrpg> No, I'm not drunk :-)

[04:52:58] <mrpg> It's late, bye, take care.
[04:53:14] -!- mrpg has quit [Quit: close - bye]
[11:20:31] <Bytram> ~tell mrpg Yes, I would prefer less emotion-laden and more technical discussion on the site; it is intended that the community moderate comments to lessen the visibility of the former and increase the visibility of the latter.
[11:22:51] <Bytram> fyngyrz: It may be a shortcoming of the moderation visibility thresholds; if the site calculated the apparent score of comments allowing say, -7 being added to all foes, then I *think* that would handle it.
[11:24:17] <Bytram> OTOH, there is an old saying: Keep your friends close and you enemies closer. I'm not saying he's an enemy; that's just what the quote says. But, the point being there is a value in knowing what the 'other guy/gal' is up to.
[11:27:12] <Bytram> maybe if there were a way to flag something like 'show only the comment title bar', i.e. "collapsed", for your foes? Would that do what you want? Just think out loud here, way too early in the am and undercaffeinated at that, so take with an unhealthy dose of salt, just in case! k?
[17:46:15] <fyngyrz> yes, collapsed would be fine
