in thread What is PerlMonks anyway?

To be honest, I don't find the monastery at all pompous. If you have a genuine and well researched question you will get a darned good answer here, something which sadly cannot be said of Usenet.
That I certainly don't agree with. I find questions on comp.lang.perl.misc answered faster and more to the point than on perlmonks. People here tend to be more verbose, and there are a lot of posts that don't really answer the question.
Because I am not surrounded by fourteen year old script-kiddy apostles for the God of PHP.
Maybe you aren't, but there are certainly days I do feel that perlmonks is filled with them.

    Nice troll, but I'm confused - what are you trying to accomplish?

    You speak very highly of Usenet and clpm and bash Perlmonks as shown above. You have also suggested switching Perlmonks to a Usenet-like interface, which begs the question, why not just make it another newsgroup? But why have a separate newsgroup for Perlmonks? What purpose over clpm would that serve? Apparently none, so maybe you just want to get rid of Perlmonks? If that was the case, why would you have posted many helpful replies, adding to the good reputation of the site?

    So I'm confused. Could you please explain your position and what you're trying to accomplish? Thanks.

[Corion]: LanX: Maybe have an infinite-loop cmd file? Much easier than trying to manage that from within Perl IMO
[Corion]: Alternatively, relaunch the application from cron (or a Windows cron) every minute
[LanX]: will try infinite loop ...
[Corion]: :START ... goto START
[LanX]: oh .bat you mean?
[LanX]: obscure cult ...
[Corion]: LanX: cmd.exe is just another way to launch Perl
[LanX]: I know its a cult... and I repent it every time
[LanX]: But cygwin comes with path problems and powershell requires too much learning for me
[LanX]: eshell in emacs is often my resort in development
