in reply to Do not feed the trolls...

with code...
my view is write however you like provided it doesn't affect someone else -> meaning cgi apps should use strict, taint, etc // code which will be maintained by others, should be written clearly // all effort must be taken to eliminate bugs posted in code, which will be distributed (like on CPAN), etc.

with trolls...
XP, trolls, etc - seem to be a recurrent debate lately. It's hard to decipher, if someone is just being curt or actually being malicious. And i know, it must be hard for programmers to continually repeat themselves to newbies or have their proven advice go unheeded, but i do suggest, that people double-think how they state something, before they do. (I'm sure, most of us are guilty of the occasional, unwarrented tongue-lashing upon someone.)

however with those, who are simply and purposely detracting from this site... well, i agree banning is useless, but if someone is on a quest for lowest reputation, one can always deny them what they want. Upvote them occasionally - until they're about a measely negative 5 points. Enough to show you disapprove, but not enough to 'reward' them.

;-)
