in reply to On Responsible Considerations

I couldn't agree more with basically all of the post and have on occasion /msg'd monks when I thought their consideration was inappropriate, with a few pointers such as to aforementioned FAQ. My only question is with regards to:

Please do not request that the replies be re-parented just so a bad node can be reaped. That changes history....we don't like that.

What I would like to know is inhowfar that extends to replies to true duplicate root nodes. In such cases I frequently go back and consider the (usually very few) replies for reparenting to the good root node, reasoning that putting the replies back in context preserves their searchability value. As an irrelevant bonus, the reaped node is then free to silently slip into the bit bucket.

Is that bad?

Makeshifts last the longest.

    Yes, reparenting a node from one true duplicate to the other is fine. I believe footpad is talking about reparenting from:

    Some random node `--- A regretted reply `--- An informative reply
    Some random node `--- An informative reply
    which is something I don't want to see.

[ambrus]: I added a timer implementation to ambrus's scratchpad as well, again the whole thing is completely untested and probably has more bugs than lines
[choroba]: Anyone using anything to validate json contents of a REST service?
[moritz]: choroba in python I use jsonschema
[moritz]: I'm sure there's a Perl implementation of it too
[choroba]: it seems Kelp and similar help you a lot with dispatching, but how to do something similar with contents?
[moritz]: like JSON::Schema
[Corion]: ambrus++ # more bugs than lines
[Corion]: That's like "works on my machine" ;-)
[choroba]: I mean, I'd like to say "this path should run this sub, but first it should check the user is authenticated, has the following permissions, and the contents is valid against a given schema
