in thread Special paid section for 'write me a program' posts

I think this idea may be a bit of overkill for the problem, but since it would be supporting PM I think it may be viable. To avoid any kind of legal problems / blame etc perhaps all of the responses could be from Anonymous Monk. That way payment to individual monks is avoided (although it would take away credit as well) and also responsibility will not be assigned if the code causes problems. I think it would be important to put a "You may have donated money for this, but use at your own risk" clause in there somewhere.

    Oh, it will be assigned. Trust me. Either Perl Monks itself will get hit, or someone will demand the identity of the person who posted the code.

    Also, if you haven't noticed, people like receiving credit for their work. A system where you aren't acknowledged for your charity work will not survive, guaranteed.

    Doesn't matter. Somebody's still going to have to pay legal bills. Many supposedly free societys still have this problem. It doesn't matter if you're right or wrong if you can't pay your lawyers.
