in thread time for new highs?

Personally, I don't need a higher level to want to continue to contribute here. Wouldn't do a thing for me.

I won't speak for any of the other saintstm though.

    You've put too much in for far too long for anyone to believe less. In fact, it is people like you and TomC who kept me interested in Perl long enough to make it a major aspect of my career. In all the time I've been on the web and in all the languages and other hobbies I've taken up, I've never found a culture quite like the Perl one.

    Maybe we should recommend just the opposite, anyone who makes some N times saint votes should be frozen publically, or maybe at 10K votes? Make the point that you've all done so much that what your current karma is doesn't matter...

    OTOH, I'm pretty sure we can't trademark "Saint". =)

    So, why do you hang around? What motivates you?

    (Note to whoever creates the polls: has there been a poll on this, "Why do you visit the Perlmonks website?" If not, maybe there should be. I'll be the first to answer.

    I check out the site because:
    - it makes me laugh
    - it makes me cry
    - it makes me smart
    - it makes me realize what some of the dumb things I do (programatically speaking)
