I had a far different deletion experience, a badly done post of mine was deleted. It was my first post as a Monk, a trivial spot of code and brief babble on my part, but I didn't provide any formating and it looked terrible. After I saw it, I quickly got with the program and corrected the errors of my ways in a follow up.

When I checked a day or so later, the original bad post was gone. My initial response was, "There it is again, the unseen hand of goodness saving me from my own stupidity." Also the first line of my follow-up that apologized for my dumbness was gone.

As I thought about it later, I became vexed - what else could be altered elsewhere? I don't know what the best balance between trying to maintain a quality site and letting the discussion flow where ever it may go is. However it a question that needs to be aired, perhaps on a periodic basis.

PS A wrap attribute for the textarea form field would be a wonderful thing.

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.
