comment Blacklist [restart]
@Tshepang - Last I heard hardware could be considered a system. In any case as slugster pointed out, there are no questions on SO about hardware restarts -- at least that I could find.

comment Why the minimum of 5 seconds between comment votes?
@GeorgeCummins - it would be nice if the system always worked perfectly, however (especially with new users) many users don't understand how to write a question that is 100% clear and exploratory. The requires back and forth despite the design to not encourage it. It helps recruit new users and will sometimes lead to useful long term pages. I think turning one's back on this effect is to ignore a significant portion of something that is specific to SO while not true of other sites in the network.

comment What's the purpose of locking a vote down until the next edit?
Of course when you get enough rep you can just edit the question yourself and then you can change your vote. So it seems like there is a small window when this stops gaming the system.

comment Why the minimum of 5 seconds between comment votes?
There is another situation which is not considered that happens to me -- a long back and forth to get to the details, once the details are explained by an inexperienced poster, all the questions are silly -- I want to delete my questions en-masse. I can't.

comment What triggers the CAPTCHA when posting an answer?
This is what happened to me on reflection, I wrote code in LinqPad and pasted in about 20 lines of code.

It answers the question in the comments and it seems the question is not very well worded.

comment How to copy only single column from table to another(Same database) in sql without using Inner join
@arun3x3 - yes after you insert some records you have to update those records... like I show in the 2nd two queries. However, I wonder why you didn't just insert the country code on the initial insert.

comment Fliter elements from list<> in c#
@DGibbs - I'm guessing it is the 4 people who thought it was a simple Except and they upvoted in the hopes of getting votes.... then they got downvotes.

Does list2 and list3 have to be a full subset? or if any members exist?
