Hiding anything, esp questions/poetry/meditations, from anyone , because its unpopular, is a lethal idea for a website like perlmonks

    Not all moderation mechanisms have to work the same way.

    Hiding anything ... because its unpopular, is a lethal idea ...

    I think we'll see otherwise. That's the essence of moderation.

    Also, (just for fun), don't forget NodeReaper's Compass. :-)

    I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.

    “Lethal idea…” I would ask you to describe how it might be so, just for entertainment, but instead let’s open the yawning hypocrisy.

    This thread has 57 replies in it, so 58 total nodes. If one is not logged in, as per the proposal in question, only 31 of those nodes display due to what I already made a joke about—some notes below… So, this ridiculous, misplaced, ignorant concern of yours… Where is it for the 27 already hidden nodes here? Almost as many nodes are hidden as are shown in this thread. Now. Today. Not in some proposal. This has not been ”a lethal idea for a website like PerlMonks.” It’s risible that anyone would think it could be.

      Hypocrisy? No.

      Whats a few more zombies in the dungeon if it encourages your mother interorectogestion

        FTR, 15 years was a fairly drastic overestimate.
