This scares me enough to always put parens around function calls
You know what's really scary? Depending on how you place your parens, that might not save you. Say you want to call a method (does the new rule count for subroutine calls as well?) which takes an argument, and add 1 to the result. Just like in Perl5, you use parens:
obj.method ($arg) + 1;
In that case, you might as well have not put the parens there - it's equivalent to:
obj.method ($arg + 1);
If you want to be save, and not depend on unnatural (unnatural in the sense that all major programming languages I know don't have their expressions change meaning depending whether there's a space before an opening paren or not) whitespace rules you have to use an extra set of parens:
(obj.method ($arg)) + 1;

    [ambrus]: Or unless you left the title field empty or entered a very short title for the node, but then you'd get a message saying that.
    [ambrus]: I hope Corion or some other admin is here and can check the logs to see what the problem is.
    [mz2255]: I wish I had an online shop but sadly no. The title field definitly wasn't short, had a perl module in the title with 5-6 additional words.
    [ambrus]: you can also try to just post again in case it was some intermittent error
    [mz2255]: Tried again, denied. Maybe my code is just so bad the site refuses to post it.
    [marto]: no, there's a bug, sometimes...
