In my post, I didn't attack you, I didn't say you were stupid, I didn't say you shouldn't participate in the monastery. I didn't say you should be censored (as you imply). Heck, I didn't even downvote your node. I did give my opinion why I thought you shouldn't post such code here. If you are learning perl and have a question about your code, then it would have been (in my opinion) perfectly acceptable for you to post your snippet in the SOPW
. But you didn't, you posted in in Cool Uses for Perl
when in fact your code wasn't a cool use for perl (again, my perfectly valid opinion). Posting here thus implies that this is cool code that others might find interesting or useful. Having seen others make mistakes in the past by making such assumptions about such poor "encryption" I gave a warning. I was trying to help out you and others who might come later. I'm sorry if you got your feelings hurt.
Also, your comment of "not to mention that would fall under the category of NMFP" shows a genuine lack of maturity. Perhaps you could learn a thing or two about interacting with others in a nice way by watching the posts of, as you put it, the "smart cats like merlyn." As a member of this fine monastery, I do care about the other users. All the code I post *IS* MFP. If I post code that I think is dangerous or bad, I'll tell people. It's called responsibility.
