So we've been hit with the usual weekly bot bull shit.
Every thread is taken over by anon bots now. One signed up last night and has 65 comments already bringing up these old threads with crap posts.
Says the guy with a four day posting history of bullshit.
I'd be happy with an original posting date warning after the title. It's nice just to have a heads up if it is an old thread brought back to life, so you don't scan the headlines and wonder if it is a new or old story.
is you have to provide a link to update the thread with a new comment. It can't just be a comment, has to have a link included.
Patrick, I noticed there isn't a "next page" link when viewing the Users list, so you can't advance to the next page of people. You can only view the first page and can't search.
When you look at the volume of "New" anons each day, it's pretty large:
You could also add their IP to the end of their normal screen name so people can connect the Anons to their regular screen name, since the Anons have their IP as part of their name.
Sorry to do this, but I'm actually going to have to rescind my offer to kick off our interview process. There's no doubt you're a strong engineer, but I just took a few moments to peruse through your patrick.net site and I'm afraid some of the views and opinions you've expressed are in contradiction to our company's core values.Sorry about the mixup,JesseOn Thu, Aug 17, 2017 at 12:59 AM, Jesse Pedersen email@example.com wrote:Hey Patrick, great to meet you. I hear you're looking for some solid Node work. That's awesome, we're big js fans over here. Do you have time for a call, or to swing by the office sometime early next week? Whatever is easiest for you. Looking forward to it!J
That's true, but I have to use at least one alias to remain employed.
I can see the need for alt accounts ever since this: https://www.patrick.net/post/1309245?offset=0#comment-1436332
