in thread Confessions of a virtual monk

Wow, maybe I put too few smileys in my post to make it clear it was a joke. I wanted to learn something about WWW::Mechanize, and I did it with fun working on perlmonks itself. I've learned more in a few days here than in many months, and I really thought that PerlMonks was a funny place where you could learn Perl enjoing it.

As a matter of fact, I'm nearly proud of negative votes. On one hand, it's sad for me that my post wasn't taken as it is (and, as a matter of fact, I DO NOT use a bot for my PM experience); on the other, I thought it really was a Cool Use For Perl and I'm happy to have posted it. I still think that the fact that I've talked about this CUFP should be a clue of the fact that I like *doing* Perl and *sharing* my experience on WWW::Mechanize more than just setting up a bot, but I also understand that humour is not perceived in the same way as me by other people, in particular when many different (and surely respectable) cultures are involved. The only thing I can say is "sorry", if I've offended anyone, which I hope is not the case.

Please be free to track my account (you can see the IPs from which I connect) to see my previous days of activity and the ones to come. You'll find that I enjoy posting as much as voting, which is something that a bot would make with some difficulty.

As to reporting to gods of the multiple account, I was sure that the joke itself would be sufficient - do you know a more direct way? Anyway, thank you for not just droppin' a "--" without explanation: at least, I've learnt something about how to behave in the future within this community.

    You can contact the gods by /msg gods ... in the chatterbox. I mostly posted to warn others who might be tempted to try your code. Don't worry about the downvotes, I've had much worse (including the simulation node I posted a link to, which initially was treated as an attack on how the monastery works).
