I'd like to see results sorted by Rep. (Regardless of whether I know the rep, lets not go there again).
I'd rather see them by (reverse) date, or better yet by
threading (so I'd see the first post to mention the
topic before I'd see the replies to it) if possible.
So it seems to me the same choices that are available when
viewing the one person's postings would be good.
Of course, not all posts have a reputation (like
perlman)--where would these fit into the rep sort?
I'd also like to be able to search posts by author. (If, for example, I remember that chromatic made a good post about typeglobs that had something I
specifically wanted, but I don't remember that it was Re: Validating a Code Reference, and I don't want to go through the listing of his 600 nodes, and
everyone talks about typeglobs, so a general search isn't as helpful. This happens more often then you think, although that node is a bad example,
because it's easy to find)
And I'd rather see that as an option when searching for
nodes by an author...
I'd like to not have all the perlman pages show up so often
As a configurable option. Sometimes that's just what
you're looking for.

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>

<h5> <h6> <hr /> <i>
<li> <nbsp> <ol> <p>
<small> <strike> <strong>

<td> <th> <tr> <tt>
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
