in reply to Let the doors open wide!

These points have been discussed many times here. In fact it was only yesterday that we had a discussion on front-paging nodes. Perhaps you should take a look at Super Search before bringing the subject up again.

And my -- vote wasn't for your ideas, it was for being too lazy to check your spelling.

Let the doors open wide! (Lack of research, lack of spellchecker)

    I know we just had a discussion on this yesterday, I was thinking of making this a reply to it, but decided it was worthy of its own topic. (I was on the CB for much of the discussion, actually, though somewhat quiet, as I wanted to do a little thinking before making a fool of myself -- which early results indicated I still did quite effectively.)

    I wanted to point out a rather radical solution to problems with homenoding, and give some background on aspects of the problem that aren't as obvious to the more inexperienced monks (such as myself) (I'm, BTW, muchly indebted to virtualsue, who answered my "research" on the chatterbox).

    I think both homenoding and moderating were built in as defense against a Troll menace that never came. I could well be wrong here. May the replies roll in.

    Also, for the record, so long as I think my grammar and spelling are good enough to not get in the way of my point, on forums that I think are above caring about such mundanary, I often let them lie. Perhaps I will be more careful about them here, as it seems people care more then I thought.

    Thank you for your consideration,
    Just Another Perl Scribe,
    James Mastros, TheOrbTwo
