It's better then creating a pretty site that you abandon and gets stale and provides poor and outdated documentation that find your site and have no way to update it.

(I'm not a big fan of the whole Wiki concept, but it has it's major advantages, and this is one of them.)

    Looking at the POE website is like taking a bus trip with someone who has needed a bath for a long time. It is not merely bad; it's unpleasant in a hostile way. The visuals are grubby and drab. The structure is unkempt and doesn't adhere to any rules. The color scheme . . .

    But let me catch my breath. The website is awful in so many different ways. Websites usually begin with a stab at an impressive header, but this one has no standard header and just displays 'User Resources' in a type font that came with my Macintosh.

    I purused your site in mounting gloom, realizing that I was witnessing something historic, a Perl website that for decades to come will be the punch line of jokes about bad Perl websites.

      Being a little over-dramatic are we? Your post reminded me of this (look at the title and think back through American history to catch the significance). If you are easily offended by a website, maybe you should read more books.

        Want to be offended by a website post? Check out this at trashdot.com, er, um, slashdot nowadays.

        Update:Okay, the negative votes show that I've been missunderstood. Someone wrote you shouldn't be offended by posts. I was trying to point to an example of when a post should be offensive. I have nothing but respect for female programmers, especially those whose programs are respect-worthy. I abhor the post I linked to.
