Relax, John, I have a theory for you.

Since I have been on PerlMonks I've seen many different personality types, and enjoyed meeting every one of them (although in some cases the enjoyment has dissipated :P). I find there are a few people within the community who adopt a certain terseness to their posts, and IMHO this is not necessarily a bad thing. It's nice to get a reply from someone that is succinct, to the point, and also lets you know where you're going wrong.

Some posts are slightly more, uhm, incisive than others, but that is the beauty of our diverse culture. A few of the more respected (knowledge-wise) monks like to come across with the "I don't really have the time to answer your question, so I'll be a bit naughty in my answer" approach. This is not a bad thing. Everyone needs a yin and a yang. I personally would be pretty bored if every reply to a node was obsequious.

[marto]: hmm, there are several universities and colleges handy that I'd have thought would offer such services, given this is out of term time, I've no experience of paying for venues :)
[LanX]: OK ...
[LanX]: I have no idea how Mark scouted, giving that he lives in London ... but I think he mentioned his wife being Scottish
[marto]: ah, so this is payback :P
[LanX]: problem with booking venues is that you only know the number of participants a week in advance. ..
[marto]: I guess most cities have areas similar to this, I tend not to mind personally, but would not go out of my way to head down that way
[marto]: it'll probably be fine.
[marto]: LanX: I appreciate that, it's honestly a difficult thing, a fine balance
