    You phrased your comment wrongly and people are thinking you are spamming. I went through the article you shared and it's worth a read. :) He was such a legend. :(

      It's not fucking recommendation, ok? Can't you see "Recent actions" written up there

    No sir, you are on the wrong website. This isn't YouTube. Here, we don't get recommendations. If anyone comments on any blog (even if it is 10 years old), it will pop up in the recent actions for everyone. In this case, this comment was made 10 hours ago on this blog, and hence it popped up in the recent actions of the "website" and not your "recommendations". And Mr/Mrs. Favorite_number7, kindly refrain from commenting about the things which you have no idea about how it works. I think you were concluding something in this comment instead of asking how codeforces work. Hence it raged TheDramaQueen. And I guess those who don't know how recent actions work on codeforces, they are very much new on this website. So stop concluding anything you don't know about.
