in thread Why the down votes?

I noticed the OP had been "on hold" (with no music playing) for about a day (with lots of activity on other questions) and thought it would help to reassure him or her that help would come. My response was done in what I thought was part of the spirit of the Perl community.

    In my opinion, a private message would have been just as well. I don't find such messages to be helpful, especially if you actually have no information whether help will be forthcoming or not.

      I can't argue against such unassailable logic: I stand corrected and will henceforth follow your excellent suggestion in such circumstances. (smiley).

        Also - personally, I think one could easily hear a slight hint of sarcasm in the "eventually" part.

        PS - Your question is very similar to a pm faq (in case you hadn't seen that yet).

        I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.
