in reply to We should elminate: Anonymous, and DOWN-voting

Anonymous posting (here or anywhere else on Da Internet) is the default; it's extremely difficult to suppress without killing off almost all participation. On Da Internet, you are who you say you are; and if tomorrow you say you are someone else, nobody can prove or disprove it.

If a site does not allow "officially" anonymous posting, those who wish to post anonymously just create throwaway accounts. If the site requires email verification to create an account, the evil little villains just create throwaway email addresses.

So the chief point of Anonymous Monk is not to permit or condone anonymous posting. It's merely a small convenience: it makes it easier to decide who to ignore, downvote, or reap. If I see a post by this "author", I feel less inclined to approve it. And anything that makes the stack of paperwork go by more quickly is a Good Thing.

[oiskuu]: yergh, <code> tags... [$top_height .. $node_height]
[Eily]: Discipulus by demonstrate I suppose you mean simulate with perl?
[Eily]: the demonstration itself is fairly easy. The number of paths on a node is the sum of the numbers of paths to the two nodes above (or one node above on the edges of the triangle)
[Eily]: since the value of a node is also the sum from the two nodes above, you just have to demonstrate that the equality is true at the top of the triangle
[Discipulus]: yes Eily, thanks oiskuu but i dont get it.. ;=( maybe I'll ask a SOPW
[LanX]: all combinations with same amount of left and right?
[Eily]: if you want to store in a structure with the coordinates as key, arrays might do, since the keys are going to be 0..n
[LanX]: (Pascale path)
[Eily]: paths like that
[Discipulus]: yes Eily++ (very keen) I want to integrate my project with a 17th experiments. I want to colorize in sequence all paths
