The thing is that in the case at hand, the harm is already done. This answer merely suggests ways to mitigate it in case it is really deemed harmful. For minor edits or shabby questions, definitely not worth the hassle.

When reviewing the edit queue, you don't easily (or at all) see the other votes. People with the right to review suggested edits are also people with the right to edit, so the re-edit will definitely be not really the same. For closing/re-opening, previous votes do have an influence (even though they shouldn't ! in theory you should know what you will vote before you click the appropriate button, and not change your mind according to what is shown then), so the problem is yet different.

I have similar issues (raw html, slow website) since a couple days. I'm not sure how to find the detailed information about the error that you're looking for, but I have this: Failed to load resource: net::ERR_TIMED_OUT http://cdn.sstatic.net/academiameta/all.css?v=b2ab0f99e801 in the console (this was on a page on meta.academia).

comment How to copy minibuffer contents?
Apparently, what the OP wants to copy is the prompt in the minibuffer, which is not the input area per se, but not output pushed to *Messages* either. As far as I can remember, the prompt is not edittable by default (or is it? that would make a terrible default imo), so this answer could be expanded to include this usage.

It would help if you included a specific example of something you would like to do, what you have tried for this and what you would like to improve. Make it as detailed as possible, for example mention the exact command of which you want to copy the output.

comment Should I let my professor know that I cited a text written by him....that I pirated from online
"so you have one of my books...?" would be a very weird question: at worst, he could ask "so, you have read one of my books?". Most researchers and students don't purchase each and every single book they ever cite (not even mentioning articles), that's what libraries are for.

Yes, I do get that, but why does the script fail if the pipes are opened/closed more than once?

comment How to get several processes to "chat" together?
Indeed it seems to work! I was under the impression that putting the echo before or after the players would not change anything, since it would not echo until some would be there to listen, isn't it correct? Or is this change only needed with the new while loop? I guess that the change from cat to read;echo is needed because cat does not wait for the pipe to be non-empty before continuing? But I still don't understand why the loop works only with file descriptors aliasing the pipes...

@User112638726 Lock files seem to be intended to solve a different problem, what would you suggest that I lock?
