Well, you may then just as well banish all bars from the theaters.

I mostly agree on what you're saying here, but I do think that a section might be welcome, where only remotely perl-related subjects, like zombie processes, security, webservers, and SQL, could be discussed. A place where this post wouldn't be reaped.

    Even in an OT section I'd've considered that one for deletion. It wasn't a security related question, the poster was essentially asking how to evade a ban. His being banned means either or both of two things. First, the ops in that channel could be extraordinary jerks. In that case the effort to spite them is really not worth it. Or he is the jerk. In my experience, this is by far the more likely reason. Maybe both are true. Now do the math, then guess what I think of honouring or even tolerating a request such as his.

    Yes bart and you leave the way open because I think I considered that one originally.

    It is a perfectly valid question, useful even. And I pondered it for a few minutes before I hit submit on it because I thought that maybe someone here would be able to offer this monk some advice. BUT - taking the whole picture into account I think it could have been kept, but in another place. Hence my reason for suggesting an OT section.
