I wrote these words. I am their author. I own the copyright to them.

I have posted them to a public forum so I have clearly granted the forum the license to distribute these words via the forum... forever.

Technically, the forum hasn't done anything to prevent me from changing my mind and revoking this license that I implicitly but quite clearly granted them. But if I expect to have that right of revocation, then I am probably a fool at least because things change and forum sites have little motivation to ensure that they will always provide the resources to allow me to take back what I have given.

PerlMonks should probably add a 'legal notice' page that states what should be obvious (you retain copyright but grant a right to distribute forever) and notifying all that the act of posting is declared to mean that you revoke your right to ever revoke this license to distribute.

PerlMonks should also add some technical means for preventing people from deleting their contributions. Something like a change log for nodes.
