Forgive me for what I am about to write, brothers and sisters.

This does strike me as a bit of a snotty response, IMHO.

Lots of people use merlyn's real name on this site, and I
bet he doesn't know all of em. (Most, probably, but never all :P).

It seemed just the other day people were waxing lyrical on how to never turn away
a valid contribution to the site, even if it is from a known Troll. Well,
(compared to DiscoStu's track-record), this seems like a pretty valid contribution
to the original thread. So what happens now, after he/she sees this reponse?

Flame On, methinks.

I am not advocating Trolling, but I felt I should comment on this node as it may turn out to cause more harm than good (I am NOT saying it was intended to cause harm, but ZydecoSue did seem quite terse and loaded with meaning.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls, I give you, my two cents.

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.
