I never thought any feedback is good feedback. Lots of insulting posts should be deleted (not reaped), and anyone who continues to be too obnoxious should have his account closed. Monks who use their powers badly should be punished.
For example, Aristotle voted to reap Perl::Improved Volume 0, Number 1, then insulted me and gave a bogus reason for deleting it--bogus because it goes against the guidelines for reaping, and because it's obviously incorrect, and I clearly pointed it out in more than one reply. And he continued to criticize me for that same bogus reason! He's insane, and I bet he got upvoted for it. He shouldn't have the power to vote on anything.
Then there's sporty, who has the nerve to criticize merlyn for being rude!
Anyway, why would anyone consider getting rid of me? Because of my response to someone who insults me for no reason or for an obviously stupid reason? Because of my response to someone who wants to censor me for defending myself? I announced I was leaving before that.
It's fun to go for -300 and now -400 experience points (which I achieved), but I'd still prefer that the monks be fair and upvote me when I deserve it, and downvote the idiots. I don't want to help or associate with idiots. That's why I'm leaving this community and looking into leaving Perl.

Snippets of code should be wrapped in

<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
