in reply to Plea for upvotes.

Buk: Created 7:30am today, last here 9:38am. Recent posts at 8:27, 8:55, 9:24.

BrowserUk: Last here 8:40. That falls between Buk's 8:27 and 8:55 posts.

Why the overlap?

    The obvious conclusion is that the BrowserUK account has been hacked.

    In which case, he (as we all) should appeal to the admins to rectify.

    I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.
      tye hasn't been here in 3 days, and his "gods" account hasn't had a login in quite some time. Your assessment that BrowserUk's account has been hacked is possible, and the most likely explanation. The alternate explanation is far worse -- that he is just stirring things up. I will go with the "been hacked" explanation and offer him a benefit of the doubt despite the rudeness of the recent diatribe.

      This whole thing belongs in PerlMonks Discussion under the original thread though, not in Seekers of Perl Wisdom. I don't see any Perl wisdom sought here.

        Is Buk an imposter/troll while BrowserUk is on vacation

        No. They were both me.

        For the rest of your questions; I have no answers beyond: I guess I said too much.

        With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
        Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
        "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
        In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
          I guess I said too much.
          You said a lot, but it was small in content.

          At least I don't understand the problem. You have posted the above message from your BrowserUK account, so what is exactly the problem?


          A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James
