A lot of newer (and not so newer) monks seem to be losing their sense of perspective when taking criticism from this site.

Lately, a lot of posts have been taken far more negatively than I, and many others (I believe), believe warranted.

Everyone, please, take what you can from the responses you receive from your posts. Don't disregard a message because you feel the tone is harsh, or the font may be overly large, or someone questions why you chose a particular method. These responses are not usually meant to inflame. These responses are generally valid points that may be helpful.

In short, don't lose sight of the message for the words, and don't lose sight of the programming for the code, or the "helpful" criticism you may receive.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • 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:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
