in reply to Deletions and the good of the community


I believe this is exactly the kind of node we should keep!! It will help the community rather than hinder it. Many new monks need the gentle guidance of those who have spent more hours searching the endless halls of nodes here in the Monastery. If a monk, experienced or not, happens to find the answer to his own question, that solution will likely help many other monks in their quest for knowledge.

The newer monk reading a self resolving thread might think: "Aha! I can use Super Search to find an answer rather than posting a node that might raise the ire of my brethren."

As a monk who spends far more time reading nodes than posting them, I can say that I would certainly learn something from a self-resolved thread... especially when the resolution is found within the catacombs of previously posted nodes...

[Lady_Aleena]: james28909, what neat trick?
[james28909]: now if i have packed a script into a PDK exe, and misplaced the source, i can print it.
[james28909]: but you have to prepare for it first by adding this to the source
[james28909]: seek DATA, 0, 0; while (<DATA>) { print; }
[Lady_Aleena]: Sounds interesting. Have you written a meditation or cool use for it?
[Lady_Aleena]: It might be something PerlMonks at large would be interested in.
