If the approval process and XP whoring are problems, then why not call for changes to address those instead of attacking weak posts in SoPW?? You seem to betray your intentions.


Three years ago, we had that embarrassing hacker incident. And it's worth keeping in mind that Saints were affected more because our info was published in a hacker ezine (including our respective email addresses and passwords). There were also signs of hostility to newcomers/beginners becoming a problem three years ago: Belittling Beginners.

And last year prominent monks, including some of the gods, fed a troll for several months, which led to enjoyable things like: Current posting ability limitations and Politeness (to one another) is a virtue.

And then throw in RFC: Review of "Seekers of Perl Wisdom" description?, which shows the shift to more militant, less tolerant, elitist attitudes in general here.

So, where's the problem again?

  • 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! —
