    What's the point of this post?

    It says that in the post. You seem to be unable to read, so I won't waste my time repeating it.

    My respect to everyone who doesn't post yet another inane string of uselessness in this thread.

    In both 2002 and 2003, this discussion was good for more than 35 posts. The reputations of the top level nodes are, respectively, 121 and 139. Many people have messaged me that they liked the idea, some have said so in replies.

    I'm sorry to have wasted your time. Feel free to ignore our fun. A lot of people think these lists are a good way to learn about new modules and people's tastes.

    About the respect thing: I have no respect for anyone who posts complaints anonymously.

      Reason: woolfy Delete. Trollish behaviour.

        saying something doesn't make it true

        That kind of makes me wonder if that is true :) Anyway, it was supposed to be obvious that it is an opinion. Opinions are often stated as facts to make texts easier to read. "Good" is always subjective; "very good" is always very subjective.

        nor does knowing the name of a module teach you anything about it.

        Guess what: I thought of that and used this site's wonderful linking mechanism to link the names to search.cpan.org, where you can find the documentation. Is that not wonderful?

        I personally like finding out what modules other people like and many have said that they also like that. It's an imperfect world and sometimes people post something that you may find useless. Sometimes most people agree that it is indeed useless. In this case, I am certain that there are people who like my post. That is enough reason to post it. It is the "point", to answer your original question.

        Juerd # { site => 'juerd.nl', plp_site => 'plp.juerd.nl', do_not_use => 'spamtrap' }

        "Trollish behaviour?"

        Well I never!

        Even if you don't agree with me, or think there's a valid point in there, it was least a little funny =P

        Enjoy censoring the locals, I'm outta here.
