Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Users with a negative user ID number (= feeds) should not be considered at all in the Visit Chat in-house ads (that's the StackExchange™ MultiChannel ChatPreviewer™ for the rest of us).

Gaming is shown as the last person talking in the 'General' room, despite it not being an actual human.

The rationale is that having bots count as chatting basically is false advertisement: they're not an actual human being you can chat with.

Yeah right, "actual human". Come on now. – balpha Oct 9 '10 at 21:58

That makes sense, so.... done; strictly speaking it isn't limited on the user-id, but on a separate marker we use to track what each item is - but the effect is the same.
