my view is write however you like provided it doesn't affect someone else ->
meaning cgi apps should use strict, taint, etc // code which will be maintained by others,
should be written clearly // all effort must be taken to eliminate bugs posted in code,
which will be distributed (like on CPAN), etc.
XP, trolls, etc - seem to be a recurrent debate lately. It's hard to decipher, if
someone is just being curt or actually being malicious. And i know, it must be hard for
programmers to continually repeat themselves to newbies or have their proven advice go
unheeded, but i do suggest, that people double-think how they state something, before
they do. (I'm sure, most of us are guilty of the occasional, unwarrented tongue-lashing
however with those, who are simply and purposely detracting from this site...
well, i agree banning is useless, but if someone is on a quest for lowest reputation, one
can always deny them what they want. Upvote them occasionally - until they're about a
measely negative 5 points. Enough to show you disapprove, but not enough to 'reward' them.
