Let's discuss Podmaster's Signatureby princepawn (Parson)

And wanted to field others.
And this is clearly an item for Perl Monks discussion. It involves a monk (or two, if you add the posting party) and obscenity is certainly an item of discussion... in fact what are the rules regarding obscenities?
And why did others not get to vote on whether or not to preserve my node? At least one person concurred with my offense to the signature and /msg'ed me with a ++
Please dont allow your personal opinions to influence what is clearly a monestery matter of great importance (read: dont go around deleting nodes when you have no good reason to do so other than your own opinion, which is clearly flawed).

Do you discuss it? Ask yourself these questions.

If you want to filter out obscene words, I recommend my own Regexp::Common::profanity_us
Carter's compass: I know I'm on the right track when by deleting something, I'm adding functionality
