[09:48:54] <FatPhil> How's APK passing the 'your comment is too similar...' filters that I thought we had in place?
[09:50:52] <Bytram> FatPhil: That
[09:51:46] <Bytram> FatPhil: That's a good question! I have no idea. Bug?
[09:56:00] <FatPhil> I know there's also that database of lame phrases - I'm sure things like "you niggers" and "I own this ..." could be added to that.
[10:00:39] <Bytram> You mean the message filters?
[10:03:49] <Bytram> the trick with that is the filter expressions are... (1) limited to a single regexp (2) need to be selective enough to match variations on wording (3) avoid false positives
[11:05:42] <chromas> you niggers need to own this and add multi-regex support
[12:22:57] <TheMightyBuzzard> FatPhil, swap an &nbsp; for a space or something along those lines. it's easy.
[12:42:08] <FatPhil> two solutions to that - normalising before comparing, or detecting and rejecting denormal stuff
