in reply to Politeness (to one another) is a virtue

"We are not thirteen-year old kids in the locker room. (There are ladies present, for that matter.) We are professional adults who are here to discuss the Perl programming language."

For all I know there are kids, or people who aren't computer professionals here asking for help and advice. I'm convinced that the latter use this site.

Update: for the record, people not being computer professionals shouldn't be a prerequisite for using this site IMHO. People have to begin somewhere, I think here is a better place than most.

    for the record, people not being computer professionals shouldn't be a prerequisite for using this site IMHO

    Is this a dagger double negative i see before me? Don't they cancel each other out in the english language (similar to perl)? So wait, that would be... hmhmhmhmoneinmindhmhm... "people being computer professionals should be a prerequisite for using this site".

    Sorry, just pulling your leg. I just could not resist.

    Don't use '#ff0000':
    use Acme::AutoColor; my $redcolor = RED();
    All colors subject to change without notice.

      You're absolutely right, I should stop updating posts while talking to people on the train home, clearly it's not working out too well for me. The point I was trying to make was that IMHO this isn't just a site for "professionals".

        Come to think of it, implementing the original would put us PerlMonks in the long run at the same level as the dodo: Extinct.
        Don't use '#ff0000':
