    Yeah I just figured that out, but this is still a weird bug.

    We have these sorta bugs all the time. What you just need to do is: • Wait for a second to page to load. • Refresh.

    But I kinda agree. A bug that can be fixed by refreshing the page still doesn't have a reason not getting fixed. Therefore, I sign a petition to the administrators to fix these kind of bugs.|dw:1344091567426:dw|

    In answer to your question: No so far as I can tell. It's a one user IP.

    Well it certainly threw me. I thought it was a bot at first. We have these on ComputerHope and they pop off scripted answers when they detect certain words in user questions.

    Actually a cuss-bot wouldn't be a bad idea here. :)

    Hmm, must say I haven't come across that one before - I'll take a look at this. Not sure if it's something related to the stuff we're doing on the backend (http://openstudy.com/study#/updates/5019a564e4b02742c0b14ecf ) or if it's a new one. And as to 'cuss-bots' - we kinda have something similar going with the filter. Unfortunately, when it comes to language, literally impossible to plan for every permutation without adversely affecting legitimate words...

    It actually wouldn't even be hard to implement since we already have a language filter.

    Yeah the swearing thing is hard to moderate though which is why I mentioned it.

    We may have some people adding words/phrases to the cuss-bot to make it smarter. For example, see http://cleverbot.com/

    Cleverbot is pretty cool and has been around for a while. I did a paper on it in college. It uses AIML (artificial intelligence mark-up language) a branch of XML so it's really easy to program but takes a long time to get it as advanced as Cleverbot.

    That's really funky. Definitely should not have to refresh to get something to show up properly. I'll see if I can reproduce it.

    The moderators may have access to a 'chat-bot-enhancer' which adds more and more words to the cuss-bot. This may weaken the power of trolls. Most of the trolls type 'cuss' as 'c uss' or 'c...u...s...s' and so on. When people are given access to add 'c..u..s..s' and some other words to the filter, it'd get the site to something better.

    Well the language filter certainly could be improved. I think it's ridiculous that it flags D ickens as a swear word and outputs wingspanens. This has thrown me in more ways than one.

    Well. The moderators may also add 'Diсkens' as an exception in the chat-bot-enhancer, no?
