The slew of "older" posts to the Nodes to Consider is
my doing. I am in the process of going through the musty
halls of the Perl Monks Discussion section and giving
it a thorough cleaning. The majority of the ones I moved
to consider are ones that should not be in the discussion
area but somewhere else, usually
SOPW. Some even have replies
by vroom stating that they should be moved to SOPW. My
main goal is to move everything that does not belong in
Discussion to the proper place, so that anyone combing
through the archives will only find relevant posts.
I realize that it seems like a lot of considered
posts, but realize that I have already gone through over
800 posts (and their threads) and over a year of
material. So, not too bad relatively. For the record, I am
done now, and it will be a while before I move on
to any other section, as I have more (non-considering)
work to do in the Discussion wing of the
Some of the older ones I also considered because they
were trollish, ill-written, or had a bad reputation. If

site, but merely places it one click further away from its
