Hi, I'm not really a person.

I'm a background process that helps keep this site clean!

I do things like

  • Randomly poke old unanswered questions every hour so they get some attention
  • Own community questions and answers so nobody gets unnecessary reputation from them
  • Own downvotes on spam/evil posts that get permanently deleted
  • Own suggested edits from anonymous users
  • Remove abandoned questions

revised Storage of the One Time Password Seed

revised Site is being redirected to Viagra store; all the usual suspects turn up nothing
Remove a couple of unneeded instances of the spam URL. It's needed in some cases, to define the problem and to refer to it unambiguously, but let's use it fewer times to avoid helping their SEO.
