Well, I am not as harsh as KM but I am willing to
vote a post down occasionally. I may have even
voted down the "chomp" one, simply because at the
top of every page in perlmonks there is a search
box. Enter "chomp" into this and you get a nicely
formatted man page all about chomp. Heck, I bet I
could even make some links to it:
chomp and chop. I save most of my votes for positive
votes. If I use those up and still have some left over,
then I vote down empty posts. Then
deragotory/off-topic/etc. posts. I also think that
someone could very easily vote a post like that down
and give a nice polite reply.
Voting down is not always meant as a dig at the post
or the poster, per se, but as a way of helping the
"better" questions filter to the top.
Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
Please read these before you post! —
Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
