The quality of PerlMonks is going downhill! Look at some of the newbies we've been getting. gbarr and TheDamian come to mind. What's with those know-it-alls? One of them even claims to have some scoop on Perl 6. The nerve! {ed note: this is sarcasm. ichimunki is quite glad these guys are taking part.}

What is with the bagging on Slashdot? Slashdot may need a spelling lesson, may be home to a lot of geeky teens and college kids, and may not know how to properly post a PGP-signed message, but Slashdot provides something that other places can only dream of-- namely the active participation of a lot of hardcore geeks in a wide range of topics. Admittedly, some of them are talking out of their, um, posteriors. But dang, it's a concentration of good info, even on a bad day. And if that gets boring, switch to -1 and have a laugh.

Complaining about signal-to-noise on the internet is a lost cause. The voting system on PM is subject to the same signal-to-noise issues as anywhere else on the net. If I thought it was broken, I'd recommend a fix. And if everyone insists it IS broken, here's the fixes I recommend: implement a posted nodes requirement before you can vote, something like 5 nodes with positive rep before getting a single vote-- and similarly up the level chain (if you have three posts to your name, why should you get 35 votes a day?); no more experience from voting; and, no voting on Meditations or Discussions.

BTW, WTF is WDF?
