( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Since i first enlisted as an initiate in the Monastry, the rate of suddenly appearing flames have been steadily rising...

It's not that i do not sometimes enjoy a good religous war over something like object oriented versus functional programming, but the flame wars at the monastry seems to be of a much nastier personal charachter!

When i entered the monastry this morning and read Reaped: Fame, Fortune, Pride, and Vanity it really saddened me.. is this what the monastry is becomming?

Probably not, but it is definetly becomming a part of the monastry wether we wan't it or not... fortunatly, it also seems that a lot of us are really here to learn, meditate and enjoy the company of kindred spirits from all over the world... this can especially be seen in the desperate replies found in such flame wars where people beg their fellow monks to quit the flaming and perhaps raise their tolerance levels for their fellow munks a bit!

The "calm down" and "let's talk perl instead" responses, does not, however, seem to have any effect at all on those who flame...

I propose that a new section is added to the Monastry... "the dojo", a place where people who must flame, can fight it out without bothering the rest of the monastry!

This will not stop people from posting flames in other categories, but it will at least give us a place to move their posts too, without being acused of cencur...

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
