in thread My 2000th post - thank you, fellow Monks!

I ++'d you for this. I don't agree with you, but I'm glad you posted this

merlyn's contribution to perlmonks and the perl community in general IS considerable. Maybe he's happy with his accomplishment, maybe he likes to share, maybe he felt chatty, maybe he's simply carrying on his own tradition of mentioning a benchmark moment on his time here. I certainly don't care why, nor does it bother me.

You asked that if you were to post here about your 161th post, did merlyn think it would be voted up? In my opinion it probably would be! But its not like posting this he hoped about getting more XP. He's going to get ++'d anyhow for being who he is, he's going to get ++'d for the appreciation of others, he's going to get ++'d for respect from others, and he's going to get ++'d simply by chance because its on the frontpage....but all of this could hardly matter to someone with 490328402398420398 XP - not that it should really matter even if you had 200 XP.

But, I do respect your opinion, and I respect that you posted that opinion here in this thread. Good for you even if you do get negative feedback.

Thanks,
djw
