in thread "freak" and recent threads

My sincere hope is that freak is new to programming in general, and also new to ethical thinking about computer/internet usage in general. I further hope that the distinct disapproval of people who present themselves as a potential online peer group (i.e. perlmonks) will cause some growth in this area.

I admit that this hope may be a long shot, but people do grow and change. Anyone who was ethically the same person at 25 as they were at 15 was either a 15-yr-old saint or a 25-yr-old jerk.

With this in mind, it might be time to stop downvoting his posts. No one needs -145 XP; further slapping may just cause him to defensively disregard any opinion from anyone on perlmonks as the result of a bunch of elitist snobs.
