Why can't I find the input box to submit a post on the Monastery Gates page?
Or, is it your policy to make it hard to post?
my immediate response is to think "The problem may not be with this site". An analogous situation is reading a post that says "There's a bug in Perl; it won't do what I want it to".
Could I have posted in a more civil fashion? You bet. Was my sentiment wrong? I'm not so certain.
Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
