in reply to Hands off your own nodes?

I tend to agree with VSarkiss, but not mainly for the reason of symmetry.

Perlmonks IMO is a community, where the community (or the designated members of the community) should have the power to decide what it would like as its content, not individual authors. Just like the voting system is a social, less invasive measure of directing good content (much like cigarette warnings for smokers), the consideration for deletion is death to a node (much like smoking too much). We don't let the author have the lesser power of social steering/reward, why should we let them hold (or hold off) the community speaking in more important matters.

[ambrus]: Corion: ah, so you want a library that parses HTTP, and you want to do the IO yourself, and don't want a full AnyEvent wrapper.
[ambrus]: Corion: I think I parsed a HTTP header from a string with LWP once. You can definitely use that to create a HTTP message too. The problme is
[ambrus]: that if you do that, you'd have to find where each HTTP response ends, which is nontrivial if you want persistent connections (essential for performance if you have small requests).
[Corion]: ambrus: Yes, ideally an API that I feed the incoming data piece by piece and that I can ask "is that response done" and "what should I do next" and "please construct the appropriate redirect for me"
