I would chime in that I believe, and have always believed, that PerlMonks is perhaps the best professional-services web site that I have ever experienced. Even the more remarkable because it appears to be mostly self-regulating.
This site, of course, experiences the social dynamics, the trials and the tribulations, that are common to every forum. But, every single day, many someones come here and almost every one of them is immediately and gladly helped. The quality of threads even from many years ago, to the extent that their technical content has remained technically relevant, continues to enable them to serve as an ongoing information resource of the highest order. That is the site’s mission, and that mission is fulfilled.
Present company perhaps not included, I think that the people who participate here have much to be proud of, and I am grateful to them all without exception.
“Better days?” That would be: today.
