Er, the definition of 'sanctimonious' is 'excessively or hypocritically pious' which I don't really think describes us that well.

    Whether we're sanctimonious or not somewhat depends on your perspective, I suppose. From the perspective of certain individuals who have endured massive onslaughts of downvotes, we may indeed be sanctimonious. Of course, it's rare the person who admits to their own sanctimoniousness. The word being in the self-description is actually kind of humourous in that light. :-)

    "I don't think that word means what you think it does." Heheheheh :-)

    I believe the 'sanctimonious' reference is to the previous poll and the response it received, not to PerlMonks in general.
