(OT) Obfuscated Perl/Geek Humor
A few snippets I came up with on my own from Friar
Poor reasons to consider a node include:
Personal preference. If you don't like a node, downvote it, respond to it, contact the author, or do all three.
- The question has been resolved and, in your opinion, did not involve enough Perl. The monastery tolerates general off-topic questions occasionally, and some monks even know a little bit about operating systems, web servers, databases, and the like. Perl is a glue language, and occasionally it has to interact with other things. Sometimes the problem is with the poster's code, sometimes not. If the question has come up before, it will probably come up again. Let the archives take it.
- Other reasons here. You're a Friar, you should have a good feel for how the Monastery operates. You have this power because we trust you to be reasonable and objective. Make wise decisions. Don't jump to conclusions. Don't get wrapped up in "not wasting precious database space" and enforcing "node purity". Relax. It's a good system, and there's room to be flexible with people.
