in thread text encodings and perl

Can't argue with that. ;-)

I will offer, however, that if you're content to post in plain text (as I assume you are, given your ongoing participation in perl5.porters and I don't know what else), you could do that here simply by throwing <code> ... </code> tags around your post. If even that seems like too much hassle, you can make an empty set of <code> tags your default template via your Signature Settings.

And if you don't like the two-phase preview/post cycle, you can enable one-click posting by unchecking "No Forced Preview" in your User Settings.

With both of the above done, replying is reduced to the three-step Click Reply; Type Plain-text Message; Click Submit.

If being able to submit formatted posts without writing HTML is important to you, there are some ways to hack around the current limitation. For example, if you use Firefox, you could use the It's All Text! add-on and configure it to post-process your text through a filter such as pod2html. (Chrome's security model prevents such a slick solution, but something equivalent is still possible to achieve; see e.g. TextareaConnect or TextAid. I can't speak to other browsers.)

I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.
