( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Edit: What was here was a cruel and specific piece of satire that's served its purpose.

In short: if you were reminded almost every day that you're not quite like everyone else here and if that difference were the focus of countless jokes, you might get tired of feeling singled out all the time. It's not about just one joke. It's about a culture that can't seem to stop focusing on the irrelevant things that make you different instead of the common things that the community is, ostensibly, about.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:

    [moritz]: when you try to quote part of a question, you have to know/guess/reverse -engineer what kind of markup they used
    [holli]: see? https://imgur.com/ a/XpF4b
    [moritz]: and stuff it into a <blockquote>...</ blockquote>, which is, like, not at all bulky
    [moritz]: specially if you're used to markdown
    [holli]: there probably is some nodelet hack that lets you use markdown :)
    [LanX]: a) well ... you can use the xml-version to get the original code w/o need of reverse engineering
    [moritz]: yes, and that's the next problem: there are piles of workarounds, but not solution, no visible progress
    [LanX]: b) you cahnge my wikisyntax to support markdown and stay PM compatible
    [holli]: see moritz, the , how do i put it, robust charme of this site is what separates the wheat from the chaff ^^
    [LanX]: I'm willing to improve the code, but we have a götterdämmerung at the moment, Corion is the only active god for some time now
