in thread How should Perlmonks deal with Plagiarism?

"mindful of cultural differences"

yes, that's important, of course. but it *can* lead to a wrong way of tolerance.
i like perlmonks, because it is a community of perl programmers - it's not german, it's not english (well except for the language), it's not japanese, etc.

and the community lives with its members and also with the discussion of its members. a community has some rules, and even if they are not written down anywhere, they exist.

anyone who participates in discussion can bring in their own suggestions. if you have valid points, you can just say them here.
but if everybody in this thread says, plagiarism is not acceptable for them, why should it suddenly be accepted only because there are monks who are practicing it but not joining this discussion?

    If my Indonesian experience taught me anything, it's that the unwritten rules that (you and) I see are not necessarily seen by people from other cultures. (That's probably the only point I'm trying to make.)
