How could this be off-topic???

Good question - and I'm curious to learn how that assessment was reached (and by whom).
(Also, despite what haj wrote, it was actually "news" to me.)

Cheers,
Rob

    hello the node seems to have been modified by some god, moved from News to no where (see here).

    > This posting has been designated as off-topic for the PerlMonks web site. Please do not respond to it.

    The above label has a link to offtopic root where Tough beans are.

    This is the first time I see such ban-ner and it perplexes me: Off-Topic were always accepted and also somehow welcome here. A post or is legitimate or must be reaped: Please do not respond to it ...seriously?

    I ask to be pointed to the perlmonks documetation in regard of this off-topic ban, or otherwise the the banner shall be removed.

    PS April 27 16:53 GMT-1 I have moved the post back to Perl News

    Hi Rob, Does it mean you didn't stay in the p5p maillist any more?

      Hi Rob, Does it mean you didn't stay in the p5p maillist any more?

      Hi xiaoyafeng, I'm still subscribed there, and I noticed immediately the announcement that Sawyer had quit.
      But I didn't pick up on the existence (or the activities) of the CAT until I followed the link that 1nickt's original post to this thread provided.
      That's the bit that was "news to me".

      Interestingly, 1nickt's original post seems to have magically reappeared with its "Off Topic" banner removed, and we are no longer discouraged from replying to it.
      Also there's no acknowledgement (that I can see) of the OT banner having ever been there.
      I'm tempted to think that we are all therefore free to edit our posts without acknowledging that we've done so ... but that's probably a right that's given only to the privileged.

      Cheers,
      Rob
        Hello syphilis

        Tsk.. tsk.. did you read my post? :)

        I quoted the banner and then, having the right being a janitor, I moved back to news, so I have update my answer with:
