Just want to expose a little about how Perlmonks is managed. This is from CB, after people spent a good amount of time criticizing me and my script:

<Wassercrats> How could you still be criticizing Varstructor after I totally debunked the global variable myth in more than one thread? How could you say I'M the troll after people like sporty call me an idiot, and people like diotalevi say my script is insecure?

<Wassercrats> FOR NO REASON!

<Sidhekin> Think "comedian", folks.</tip>

<Wassercrats> And I almost never voted, yet others downvote posts of mine FOR NO REASON!

<Petruchio> If you persist like this, you will be borged. You may consider this fair or unfair, as you please.

<Wassercrats> FU P

<castaway> oooh, can I?

NodeReaper has swallowed Wassercrats. NodeReaper gets indigestion.

    Votes have little or nothing to do with how you yourself vote, but what the content of the posts that you post is. From what I've seen, it looks like you're intentionally trying to stir peoples' feathers. As such, you've been downvoted accordingly. If you don't like it and can't say anything "nice", lurk.

      W is also upvoted accordingly since it seems to be a goal of his to garner downvotes.

    <Wassercrats> Oh, I'm sorry, I thought we were talking about my penis

    Sorry, you lost any credibility you might have had when you wrote that one.

    Maybe it's because you're a freakin' idiot, and everyone recognizes that.
