Why do you use 'INDIAN' guys there?, you could have just told guys; can't you?

I agree, most unfortunate. No wonder that the user chose to post anonymously.

I too noticed this group of nodes, and it raised flags for me too. I have in the past taken time to point out what I thought were abuses, but when I looked close at this, my impression was that there were a few fellows from Chennai enjoying PerlMonks, and who likely access the site at the same time of day (off hours for most over here). I did opt not to vote for the first reply to many of those nodes since they were front-paged by the first replier. No rule against doing it, but many dislike the practice because it gives the impression of XP gathering.

I hope that you "Indians guys" continue to enjoy this site as much as those who found it before you and those who will come after. People here are very protective of this site, but as you can see it's worth protecting. Don't let this taint your monk experience.

Heh, and if you are just one person, choose one user and continue down your monk path.

Update: Reposting nodes from other sites is, of course, unacceptable. Those who did this should repent :-) but not be cast away. There have been several 'questionable' users who went on to contribute meaningful dialogue once they righted their ships.
