I also voted to keep the original node. Personally, I find W to be insulting and immature; I tend to ignore most of his posts. However, Perlmonks is not meant to be limited to the mature poster. A wide variety of views and opinions are, imho, meant to be aired here. If W feels that s/he's getting the shaft, then it is not only his right to speak up, but his responsability. Do we really want a repeat of Abigail?

I do think that many of the responses to W have devolved from reacting-to-content into reacting-to-speaker. I forget which monk has it in his sig, but "Look not at who speaks, but instead look at what is said." It's an ideal, but one I think we should all strive to achieve.

I shouldn't have to say this, but any code, unless otherwise stated, is untested
