Until now, I had nievely assumed that spamming was nearly nonexistant on Perlmonks. Yesterday I encountered a spam node within minutes after it was posted. When I submitted it for consideration, my approval nodelet returned showing it already considered by someone else, with four votes to reap. Such a rapid response by a vigilant community is apparently what keeps PM so clean ++.

Perhaps if the Internet community at large dealt with spam so swiftly and decisively, spamming would become a thing of the past.

[Corion]: If you have a BOM, that's a really easy way to recognize UTF-8. Otherwise, you can try to decode a file from UTF-8, and if that works OK and doesn't crash, most likely the file was valid UTF-8
[Corion]: But as "ansi" (Latin-1?) is a single-byte encoding, any file is a valid ANSI file
