in thread Automatic reminder to use strict in new SoPW posts...

Not all SOPW posts are the kinds of posts that require the use of "use strict;". Some posts don't include <CODE> at all. So I think this would be a bad idea.

"Seekers of Perl Wisdom" != "What's wrong with this code"

If I post a regex, for example, that's failing match a given text, my use of strict or not is irrelevant.

Personally, I would support a c.l.p.m.-style FAQ that is emailed to a New User when they sign up. Something that gives all the necessary info like "How to post a question", "Where to post a question", etc. Of course, this doesn't guarantee that it will be read. But we can't force annoying popup windows on people.

    I realise I ask many more questions than I do give responses, but on this one I feel the need to give my humble opinion. I support the idea of a FAQ sent at registration time. I feel it would have saved me much time, and quite a bit of embarassment here had things like "use strict" before submitting a question. Thanks for hearing me out. :)
