Yea +Google I'm finding valid mailing list emails in my spam folder daily.  What ever you started doing last week is wrecking your real spam detection percentages.   
 
Dear Google Mail Team,

  I've said very nice things about your spam filter in the past, but I'm afraid I am going to have to take it all back. I'm currently going through the spam for the last week, and have gone through about a third of it.

Something you did recently has been an unmitigated disaster. Of the roughly 1000 spam threads I've gone through so far, right now 228 threads were incorrectly marked as spam.

That's not the 0.1% false positive rate you tried to make such a big deal about last week. No. That's over 20% of my spambox being real emails with patches and pull requests.  Almost a quarter!

I don't know how to even describe the level of brokenness in those kinds of spam numbers. There were a few pages of email (I've got it set up so it shows me 50 threads per page) where more than half of the "spam" wasn't.

Quite frankly, that sucks. It's not acceptable. Whatever you started doing a few days ago is completely and utterly broken.

It's actually at the point where I'm noticing missing messages in the email conversations I see, because gmail has been marking emails in the middle of the conversation as spam. Things that people replied to and that contained patches and problem descriptions.

They didn't try to sell me a bigger penis or tell me about how somebody is cheating on me. Really.

You dun goofed. Badly. Get your shit together, because a 20% error rate for spam detection is making your spam filter useless.

[ Edit: looks like it started four days ago. As of July 13, it looks like a big swath of lkml has been marked as spam for me. ]

[ Edit 2: final numbers: out of around 3000 spam threads, I had to mark 1190 threads as "not spam". So the numbers actually got worse: about 30% of my spam-box wasn't actually spam. It started around 1pm on Monday, July 13th. The problem really is that clear, that I can tell pretty much when it started ]

[ Edit 3: it wasn't just patches, and it's not just lkml. There were things like Junio's recent git v2.5.0-rc2 announcement etc. The new gmail spam filter hates any mailing list emails, apparently. In the time I wrote the last note, I got seven more emails marked as spam, two of which weren't. ]

Yeah, some spam I get sent is slowly making their way from trash and spam folders into my priority and main inboxes and it's getting annoying.

Drone? You mean idiots with quadcopters? Second time in less than 4 weeks.

You "drone" owners are going to get grounded permanently  because you are not self policing your community and runnig out the idiots. 
A brush fire broke out in the Cajon Pass on Friday, closing at least three lanes of the 15 Freeway in both directions.

Posting public for this I usually only post private. 

Might need a bit of hand holding in the future. I'd need Get Debian running with a full  KDE DE. Google's choices of results to return to me are crap. The reason for this is changes in the way +openSUSE ( #openSUSE  )

 It looks like Disto  I'm on; +openSUSE (#opejnSUSE) is not really going to continue to suitable for me due to decisions "those that do" have made. Tumbleweed isn't really working for me as I have yet to get what I consider stable packages out of Tumbleweed for multimedia (a working mplayer from Packman with subtitle support to be the engine behind SMplayer, my choice music player, etc.)   #openSUSE  Leap 42 may not even support my hardware though it's stability is very attractive. I can't really see myself using #openSUSE  past the extended support being offered by Evergreen for #openSUSE  13.1 because of choices the Devs and Suse have made.

Basically I run #openSUSE  Packman. Flaky Packman in Tumbleweed isn't Packman's problem. It's a problem that Factory/Tumbleweed has created. From what I understand they are only allowed to build packages once a week on OBS. I can't see how they can ever sync up they'll either be a week or two behind or ahead. Never in sync. I've yet to get mplayer working as it's missing a lib that isn't even in #openSUSE  anymore and it's not installed with the mplayer package.  I use my system for multimedia crap multimedia support and crappy support for Packman don't work for me.

Edit. 

Well I just tried to install Mplayer and SMplayer on a fresh instal of  Tumbleweed They aren't in the Packman multimedia repos anymore.
Looks like they are not even supported anymore. MVP isn't even a substitute. There is no way to configure subtitles or anything else that I've found. Audacious can't be installed due to a missing lib. That won't even cut it. Looks like Tumbleweed is turning to pure shit where you'd be constantly fucking with it to keep it even useable unless you are a dev.

Saudi is a nexus of terrorists and terrorist funding yet my country's  (U.S.A.) government continually looks the other way.  Completely fucked up. 

#terrorists  
Officials say that the Saudi national flew into the neighboring Gulf nation hours before launching the attack that killed 27 worshipers.

I see gambling as a tax on the poor and stupid so personally I would like to see the casinos shut down.

Whever it's supposed to be doing it's blocking access to Funimation.com completely and was blocking access to Crunchyroll until just a few minutes ago. Since I'm paying those sites for access I'd appreciate this #CloudFlare  to get the hell out of interfering with my connections

As I thought it might be, it's really easy to homebrew a Bluetooth CAT interface. It's nothing more than a 7805 with a couple of caps to regulate the power and a Sparkfun Bluetooth Mate Gold (Roving Networks RN-41) module.

Extremely straightforward... and it works! Now I'll put it together on some perf board, slap it in a tiny enclosure, cannibalize an (extremely) cheap 8-pin mini DIN cable from Monoprice, and call it done.

Introduction
If you don't share your profile with me I will not circle you.

I watch Anime as my main 'media' diet. I don't watch TV or follow popular music. I get most of my news and information from the Internet. My main computer operating system is Linux and I use the openSUSE distribution of Linux.

Doing WSPR is my main Amateur radio interest right now. I am a digital operator for the most part when not doing weak signal propagation reporting. I am a UHF-VHF-Low Band-VHF FM user.

I dislike aggressive people and value cooperation and sharing as personal traits.

I have subscriptions to Crunchyroll, FUNimation and The Anime Network for streaming Anime. I but I buy a lot of Anime DVDs and Blue-rays. You are never to old for Anime. I don't get people who say they grew out of it. It's not something you can grow out of if you love it.
