sauoq I find your logic impeccable yet unconvincing. This is a problem which extends beyond logic. Your arguments can be logically overturned, I don't see any value in doing that since it doesn't address the real and valid concern you are attempting to put forward.

Rather I suggest that Perlmonks is popular and well regarded because of its culture. I say this culture has two core characteristics:

  • correctness - care about doing things well in the large and small matters. Ha! note this foofaraw regarding re-titling.
  • generosity - care about others. As a group, monks kindly treat the naive, lost, and abrasive strangers.
I think the top-node demonstrates a fine sense of generosity in encouraging us to consider the preferences of others. Applying this to something so subtle and important as habits of thought is worthwhile.

Correctness leads us to not have P3r1munks painted on our gate. That same desire has us retitling nodes. This thread is inspired by a marginal case: the node could reasonably stand with its title. That said, I much prefer that the title was changed.

I feel the "broken window syndrome" is germaine. I am repeatedly impressed by the timeliness of our editors and considerers. I think the speed with which these functions are executed is important. When a janitor sees a mess and quickly moves to clean it up I find myself reluctant to criticize: It's too clean.

print reverse split //, "BQ gninrom yadnom rehtona tsuj";

Be well,
rir
