in reply to Limit on voting down a person


It seems there are many discussions about PM itself. Funny, when I first joined these discussions were limited about changing the XP, nobody (perhaps the occasional newbie)_ complained at being downvoted. Is this because this PM is growing rapidly? I don't know. I could follow all nodes and all discussions. But now it gets harder to keep up and also knowing all the users, in past nodes it was mentioned there were "cliques", politics on PM? I don't chat much and just keep a low-profile so I didn't noticed this. The only thing I can say on the matter is that on all the post I made I can count the downvotes on one hand. I have also no realy high XP posts to, so I'm just a average PM like I'm a average Perl-hacker.

The only thing I can say is that when living with other people and you have some explicit opinions the trick is to tell/post them so diplomatic as possible trying not to offend people. Being behind a computer and not seeing the other person is no excuse to offen other people.

In light of this quote: Freedom of speech doesnt mean you should say everything before thinking. Thinking before speaking is not always easy, but here you have to type. So you can think over what you type!
mail etiquette found this on mailing, but some of the points could be used here!

My opinions may have changed,
but not the fact that I am right

    This is because you are reading in the area called "Perl Monks Discussion" which is not for discussion BETWEEN Perl Monks, but for discussion on PerlMonks.

[Veltro]: People thought it was not possible.
[marto]: and until recently it wasn't and arguable (for some samples) probably isn't
[Veltro]: How did we get here? Oh yeah, advertisement. So let's get back there. What I ment to say is that I think it is possible to create an algorithm that filters out advertisement
[Veltro]: And yes, maybe your decoder needs the cloud to do so.
