    If you weren't anonymous you could help reaping spam! =)

    So better keep the account and use it for productive things ...

    PS: Shall we call you "Blinky" from now on? ;-)

    My browser hasn't rendered BLINK tags as blinking for a very long time. Maybe you should get a better browser? Or maybe you should customize your browser's CSS to prevent BLINK tags from blinking? If PerlMonks were to protect you in the chatter box, who will protect you everywhere else?

      If PerlMonks were to protect you in the chatter box, who will protect you everywhere else?

      If you can blink in the chatterbox , why can't you blink in regular posts?

    ++ to BlinkingLanX

    Hey, tried to msg you, but claims account is disabled. You must have done something very bad. :)

    --Chris

    P.S. Add it!
    #!/usr/bin/perl -Tw
    use Perl::Always or die;
    my $perl_version = (5.12.5);
    print $perl_version;
        Ask Bond, James Bond.

        --Chris

        #!/usr/bin/perl -Tw
        use Perl::Always or die;
        my $perl_version = (5.12.5);
        print $perl_version;
      Odd you ++'d this, considering you and LanX spammed the CB with blinking messages. Thanks for jumping to conclusions again though.
        LOL. Busted. Guilty as charged :)

        #!/usr/bin/perl -Tw
        use Perl::Always or die;
        my $perl_version = (5.12.5);
        print $perl_version;

    I use both IE (v9) and Firefox (nightly) - they don't render <BLINK> tags and I haven't even seen them do that in a LONG time. Try getting a better browser? :-)
      Older FFs do but about:config helps. According to WP there is only Opera left blinking.

    Just my personal taste; If you want to blink, user your eyelids, you can make anything and everything blink that way.

    Blinking stuff is distastefully like marketing to me, or tells me something is going to blow up soon. If it is the former

    it is distracting and gaudy. If it is the latter, there is little I can do about it, so would rather not know... :-)

    No offense to the marketing majors or those of other tastes intended: just voicing my thoughts... tasteless as they may be.

    ...the majority is always wrong, and always the last to know about it...
    Insanity: Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
