Maybe it's the idealistic side of me, but I personally believe we are 'Perl Monks', and not 'Perl Demons'. Maybe a discussion or two would be effected by a resolution to save original versions of a post, but for the most part I consider it futile. We should have the trust in our fellow monks. I percieve this as an attempt to form a contingency plan, and take up valuable hard drive space, for every squabble that arises. I think it would be best to leave perl monks the way it is, and not worry about these few cases. (unless the problem has become eminent in one too many cases, and contrary to my beliefs its not being blown out of proportion.)
Although if we are going to have this, I would definately concur with merlyn's sugestion.
