As far as the original question goes, I'd think it's the Monastery metaphor that may originally attract the notice of many Christians, and it's the content that keeps them here. But that's just a wild guess. ;)

Let's not forget other varieties of monasticism, such as with the various flavors of Buddhism.

One thing ironic about this site is that, due to the nature of the online forum, perlmonks is a lively social environment rather than an environment of isolation typical of most monastic traditions.

    [marto]: sounds eye watering
    [LanX]: oh your talking about my pic?
    [Eily]: marto #SoSad
    [holli]: duh
    [marto]: I expect you to take a nice photo in Glasgow to replace this one :P
    [Eily]: LanX yup, saw it when I checked your current rank
    [LanX]: obviously the message is not clear enough if you only notice the onion now. ...
    [Eily]: might have noticed before and forgotten
    LanX has ideas for more similar pics
