in reply to plz replace this super ugly & damned bad board by a supergood one: take open source [of course]

It's too bad you didn't first ask in the chatterbox whether writing such a node would be a good idea. I would have given you the following advice:
Please spend some time here being quiet, reading nodes, getting familiar with how this board works and who we are, before even thinking about uttering any diatribe disregarding this site's software. And if you feel a stronge urge, go write it, but don't publish it.

Read the Netiquette, specially rule 3: first know where you are, who we are and who you are for us: a nameless newcomer without any merits here.

No way you could shoehorn us into giving up everything for --- a PHP board!

Now it's happened, and there's no way to change that (you can countervail though, with a better attitude and posts). The text you wrote will eventually remain in the perlmonks database for years to come and for all to see.

That's one thing people often forget, whilst they use boards with nifty features, avatars and dancing smileys and shiny user interfaces - their utterances are logged and, after being uttered, beyond their control. It's written, and now it's in the book. Nodes are documents.

OTOH, the chatterbox is volatile. Please use that for any dubious suggestion, for your own sake.


_($_=" "x(1<<5)."?\n".q/)Oo.  G\        /
                              /\_/(q    /
----------------------------  \__(m.====.(_("always off the crowd"))."
");sub _{s./.($e="'Itrs `mnsgdq Gdbj O`qkdq")=~y/"-y/#-z/;$e.e && print}
