I recently noticed an odd warning by the SmokeDetector bot about this question:

"Luncheon meat detected" report by SmokeDetector

What does this mean? Should I be worried about it?

See here in the Charcoal HQ transcript:


What does " Luncheon meat detected" generally mean? Spam? R/A? or just suspicious? or something else? This was my misunderstandings from.

The intent is to catch "hashes" left at the end of the post. It's FP prone...It's there to catch a specific troll that writes posts with "hashes" at the end. "Hashes" being a group of random letters without spaces.

More info is here but you need a special account with Charcoal.

    For what it's worth "FP-prone" means prone to false positives, i.e. Smoke Detector reporting posts as possible spam which are actually fine.
