    Ah, that way around. Momentary brain lapse, sorry. What's will all the hot temper anyway?

    Makeshifts last the longest.

      I'm not angry about this.

      It seems 'correct' PerlMonks behavior to:
      * Explain why you're downvoting a node, rather than just downvoting it

      * Be polite, helpful, and encouraging to others

      This could certainly be a troll. But the original poster hasn't tried to bash perl, or perlmonks, or start a holy war, or anything else, and his followup posts are certainly not troll-inspired. In his last post he even tries to feel sorry for all the trouble.

      So, I don't understand all the negative reaction to my explaining why I'm downvoting nodes that seem to be impolite or rude to the original poster.

      Should I just beat on young kids who don't know better? Is that correct behavior? Yes, I'm asking this in a hyperbolic way, but I'm also a bit serious.

      If anyone thinks this is original post is a troll, leave it alone. Isn't that what trolls want -- attention? Why are you feeding them then?

      Isn't the best thing to do, give a polite and serious response? Or have I been greatly misled?

      Is it bad form to reply and say why I downvoted a node? This seems to have gotten a number of people angry.

        Ah, imagine a world were you didn't have to worry about such things. Where precious bytes wouldn't be wasted on lines like "I downvoted your post." Where such sentences wouldn't result in 8 more posts of petty insults. A world in which we could just focus on the discussion, uninhibited by "experience points" and the trolls who seek them. A world in which maybe, just maybe, we could actually work together to accomplish a project...

        Oh wait, we have that. I guess I'll be leaving now. I suggest you do the same.
