in reply to Special paid section for 'write me a program' posts

I like the idea, generaly.

However, I don't really see the point of a sepperate section. Instead, I wish people would simply post SoPWs that say "I know I havn't put the effort I should into this, but please help me anyway. To show I respect the perl community, and to help PM in leu of my time in learning, I've donated $1.4380 to YAS' PerlMonks fund." (BTW, I think that'd be a better place to donate to for this -- the money there is earmarked to help with PM's operating expenses.)

    I agree with the sentiment, but the kinds of people who post effort-free requests aren't usually familiar with Perlmonks culture, and wouldn't know that that was the accepted practice. By and large, monks who have been here a while pick up on what is the right and wrong way to ask for help.

    I'm suggesting pretty much the converse of what you say - have the separate section regardless of whether or not there is some kind of donation system attached.
