Preach it, brother. See also MJD's views on the subject, from back during Perl's golden age. If you don't want this website to die like Usenet, don't act like a Usenet jerk.

    Usenet

    Ah Usenet. I remember it well.

    I went to the group for a particular api not that long ago and asked: "Does anyone here use xyz on Windows?".

    The group owner moderator replied: "Don't ask to ask, just ask!".

    I replied: "But I didn't ask to ask; I asked the question I wanted to know the answer to. If no one here uses xyz on Windows, then there is little point in my considering doing so because a) it is unlikely to work; b) I'm not going to be able to get any help getting started".

    He banned me. For arguing.


    With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

    The start of some sanity?
