in thread Use placeholders. For SECURITY!

Why do you feel the need to get personal?

I'm not a regular to this site (thusly, I don't plan on registering), but there seems to be some huge assumption that all of perlmonks.org readership comes from people that spend vast amounts of time on this site. I find my way here from time to time based on an interesting RSS headline that I would like to know more about.

If the mentality on this site is that I need to have read all articles prior to this one to understand what the article is talking about (and thus, be a perlmonks.org expert, as I'm sure you are), and the other readers of this site are as hostile as you are, then it's time for me to move on.

Good day to you.

    Well, I guess we've veered into the humorous portion of the day, because it's hard to understand how my post could be construed as personal when you're posting as an Anonymous Monk. :)

    Not really, we just assume that if you are commenting on something that you have something useful to say .. and that presumes that you understand the technical background. The original post had links to other nodes with relevant information, which you should have read if you were going to respond and not waste everyone's time.

    Yes, surprisingly, we do expect posters to make intelligent, informed comments. It keeps the noise level down. And if you have misinterpreted my polite remonstrations and reasoning as hostility, your skin is way too thin.

      That's easy to answer. While I may be anonymous, I know what I wrote, and I know that you're responding to me. That makes negative things you say, in reply to a comment that I've made, personal. If you need an example, I'll refer you to the troll label -- which I don't consider myself to be.

      I do believe that I had something useful to say. I was providing constructive criticism. I stated that I had a problem with the article, and I stated how it could be fixed.

        Dear Anonymous Monk,

        This is the last letter I will write to you. By the time you read this I will be gone. :)

          While I may be anonymous, I know what I wrote, and I know that you're responding to me.

        Right, but the only way that my comments can possibly be construed as a 'personal' attack is if anyone else knows who you are. You know who you are, that's reflexive logic. No one else does. Ergo, it's not a personal attack.

          I was providing constructive criticism. I stated that I had a problem with the article, and I stated how it could be fixed.

        OK, well now you know that instead of posting a snarky comment, do a little legwork first, on this site or on Google (though most likely you should be able to find what you want here).

        This community exists (as I understand it) to help fellow Perl developers out. I'm big on helping out. If you are a Perl developer, sign on for a real account and experience Perl Monks.

        Best of luck!
