it's the least bad of all the options, by a rather significant margin

Hmm. Can you (or anyone) point me at a discussion of what makes it the least bad option? Not necessarially for Perl related stuff, just why mailing lists in general, (which from my perspective have so many inherent problems and literally zero benefits), are the preferred choice. I'm not trying to start a debate *here*. I'd just like to understand the rational.

    [holli]: nice. i never thought of hosting a script on the site
    [LanX]: It's not a perfect solution, since it means invoking the monastery several times, but IMHO still better than hosting on another server
    [holli]: i'm surprised it even executes. the server sends text/plain AND a content-dispositio n header
    [holli]: this really really should not be executed as Javascript
    erix's head is getting content indisposed
    [holli]: maybe try a GET instead?
    [moritz]: I must say, when I was very active on perlmonks, I got really used to the markup and all the workflows
