So, I got trolled by the expert chat AF, figured it out immediately, and I think it is really not cool for SE to do to the userbase, especially because I frequently use this site (both asking for help and attempting to help others) in the course of my job, and it just wasted my time and pissed me off. Is there somewhere (aside from this post) to submit feedback to whomever at SE made the decision that this is an appropriate joke?
Dunno if this link still works but here is my transcript http://adviza.stackexchange.com/transcript/GIytjIhQIkGH
Expert: Hello, can I help you with issues around specifying the build directory of a test run?
User: Hello, I am attempting to specify required files to be deployed with a generic test, where the required files are built by the TFS build process
Expert: I don't know.
User: This a very unwelcome joke. I am actually trying to work.
Expert: Oh really? I'm kind of actually trying to work myself.
User: Well, since you apparently only kind of actually work, keep working on it.
Expert: Hey, would you like to be keeping folder tree instead?
User: Tell your programmer that doesn't make any sense.
User: This is in poor taste and is not appropriate for the SO userbase. I am now less likely to continue using any Stack Exchange sites and I am drastically less likely to follow advertisements from SE.
Expert: Oh really? I'm kind of drastically less likely to follow advertisements from se myself.
