@baris That would be nice. Also, probably not a bad idea to add some kind of UI cue to indicate that the button has been pressed, and maybe something in the way of error-checking to let people know when the socket is broken (That would be more of a general thing - there are a lot of actions that don't work at all without any kind of feedback - upvoting, scrolling to load posts, IIRC some of the buttons too).

RE: Debugging nodejs app.js at 100%
Post nodejs version disable all custom plugins and see if it still happens. Try updating to nodejs 4.5 and see if it happens.
We are not seeing this issue on this forum or the forums we host. So it's either a nodejs version issue or a custom plugin doing something that's locking the node process. Also check this out https://community.nodebb.org/topic/8998/nodebb-periodically-hangs and https://community.nodebb.org/topic/8789/infinite-loop
This happens at wtdwtf too - we have a script that kills an instance if it pegs a core and stops responding IIRC. I believe it's a nodejs bug.
ETA: The reason we suspect it's a nodejs bug, IIRC (it's been a while since we discussed it), is because it's happening in native code at low levels. I think it was suggested that specific virtualized environments are also related to the issue - DigitalOcean is the one we're using.
