It would be an interesting (if very highly unscientific) to see what differences there are in the poll responses on PerlMonks vs. on a LUG homepage...

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! —

    [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
    [moritz]: and then I didn't post for a while, and then tried to answer a question. It nearly drove me nuts
    [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? a/XpF4b
    [moritz]: and stuff it into a <blockquote>...</ blockquote>, which is, like, not at all bulky
