Imagine a self proclaimed driving instructor from England - obsessive and deaf - constantly preaching to continental students to drive on the left side. *

These corrections bind more energy than feeding all the other trolls together, because you can't leave them uncommented.

Just have a look at Worst Nodes of The Year

And the proportion of his negative posts is astronomic.

> however I do not think it is correct to just let bad blood flow in this forum.

A lot has been said and proposed already, even automatically marking or reaping exceptionally negative posts.

But if you think "some of the points ... are in fact valid" you are welcome to put your energy into discussing them.

*) well imagine a Brexiter "politician" giving all his jingoistic speeches in public in Europe ...

) now try to imagine worst nodes of the last years.

) almost one quarter of his posts are negative, far more have been down-voted at least once.

It's obvious that almost everybody is relieved when he doesn't show up and practically nobody would miss him.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
