    ...'meditated' about PerlNuns...

    Just a something something...

      Worth more than one ++! Real nice answer

      I wandered off in the direction of Ireland, where in many places internet is hard to find. I must say the country made me to hardly miss it. Is that a sin?

        Don't think about invisible pink elephants.

        Exactly. Their lack of existence makes them so unattainable that Monks (of the gentlemanly persuasion) are driven wild, with no choice but to seek solace in solitary contemplation.

    Ahem. A little hacking with those Perl tools...all for a noble cause, of course!

      Yes! But you won't like it.

    Perhaps it would help if there was an authoritative definition of "proper monk behaviour"?

    "There aren't evil guys and innocent guys. It's just... It's just... It's just a bunch of guys." - Steve Arlo, Zero Effect

    Perhaps there is a test that can be applied to any action that will determine how "proper" it is? Ask the questions - "Am I doing something that is helpful to another person trying to use perl? Did I at least intend to help?"

    But then there is the matter of jokes. I think jokes and pop-culture references are inherently monk-like behavior & I would call them proper.

    Lulz on the other hand can take on that Andy Kaufman quality** - where they might only be funny to the perpetrator. That borders on behavior more befitting of a Troll.

    We would like to think that Monks and Trolls are mutually exclusive camps. I repeat, we would like to think that... But then again comments like that are like chumming for flames, so my last transgression was apparently this sentence.


    ** - mind you I truly love Andy's work. Sadly however it could be argued that since the mainstream audience wasn't "in on the joke" much of the time, he had a hard time of it, especially at the end.

    Began to think that maybe Ruby on Rails was "all that". I mean, bless as a keyword? C'mon... Then, my refresh of perlmonks.org finally finished and I came to my senses.

    I think my response to this poll is fairly straightforward to guess...

    "did some other mischief", of course!
