Were it not a monastery, my favourite metaphor for PerlMonks would have been:
How about "Perl Brothel"?
With apologies to sgt, one could still learn Perl in a 'Disciplined' way. Of course, mens sana in corpore sano would go right out the window.
Oh, there would be problems. For instance, helping newbies could actually COST you XP. Come to think of it, helping multiple newbies at one time could cost you a LOT of XP. Also, Golf would probably have to be renamed. And I'm not sure I want to consider what some of the ramifications would be for 'Obfuscation'.
Anyway, it was just a thought.
