How about "A Perl Mall"?

Well, I like it, but a very similar suggestion that I favour over yours because of a certain exhotic vein is that of a bazaar directly following yours in the thread. Both terms have the con, though, of having a strong commercial bent in their common acceptations, while here we're not selling anything: people come here to find help kindly offered to them with free of charge, and other people give away help for nothing in change, but possibly some personal satisfaction.

[robby_dobby]: Other than the content, that Chrome would not allow submitting code sounds like something funky going on there :P
[erix]: lazyness-driven inventio :)
[erix]: "the dog ate my homework"
[Eily]: looks more like "all my plates are broken and I don't understand why. Also I can't retrieve the broken parts because the elephant in the room is on the way"
[ambrus]: Eily: also webpages aren't displayed on my monitor no matter what I click with the mouse, and there's a blackout right now, could that be a problem?
[robby_dobby]: ambrus: Yes
