++ Thanks for the exceptionally quick response and fix to the problem.

I don't believe I've ever used Random Node before now; however, I just followed that link and refreshed a dozen times or more: nothing of any particular interest but no denied access either.

    Just used this feature for the first time and (I'm not making this up) hit Re: Detecting last line and blank line by sundialsvc4 ... in which it was suggested that SunnyD's post was made by an "artificial intelligence troll bot" ... which LanX insightfully noted was no longer a fantasy ... and further speculated that "probably someone is training a neural network with our conversations".

      Most unfortunate. Please excuse me smirking and chuckling in the background. :-)

      I reread the Guardian article and got a further chuckle from that.

        It raises a valid point, IMHO the function should take into account the change made to hide nodes below the threshold put in place to hide such content from those who aren't logged in. That way when someone rolls the dice they don't end up looking at something that's hit the Worst Nodes page, and are more likely to random something harmless or possibly insightful, rather than depressingly stupid or dangerous.

        Who would have thought that a minor report about some unexpected behaviour from a feature that most Monks apparently don't use, could cause such amusement...

      You and I both know that there was no intelligence used in the creation of that post.
