in reply to Abigail-II and some thoughts

See In defense of criticism and In defense of civility. This issue has been wrangled around here for a long, long time.

Experts, if you cannot resist posting in large, colored fonts, do not act surprised when the community reacts negatively. It has happened before, by a well-known, loved and respected member. The community responded with loud disapproval then, and we did it again this time. Experts, please don't do that.

Monastery dwellers (in other words, everyone), put on a thicker skin and re-read before you respond to a flame. It stirs up our little village and may deprive you of contributions (both given or received) to Perl wisdom and experience when someone leaves in a huff over some perceived slight.

Let's try to keep the Monastery a safe and pleasant place...
