in reply to Are "PM Discussions" only to be technical?
I agree that anything related to PerlMonks itself or to the monks probably should be placed inside Perl Monks Discussion. However, I wouldn't want that section to degenerate into a chatterbox :). I think the social dynamics content we had over the past few weeks was appropriate and nice, but it shouldn't be more (doesn't have to be less either). So the update you propose is good, but I wouldn't do any further steps to encourage discussion about social dynamics.
