in thread unreaping , reversing reaped, resurrecting a node

A bare link to unexplained offsite code is hardly more participatory than actual spam.

At least its not anti-participatory, like deleting/disappearing content , in this case actual code answer to question asked

I'm sorry, but now you're just being ridiculous. It would be at least as easy for the OP to c&p the code, and the onus is entirely on the OP to do so. Maybe, if there were already significant discussion around the code, i might, as a moderator, be inclined to suggest to the OP that he c&p the code rather than link to it offsite. But even that tenuous standard is very far from met in a case like this.

:)

How would an anonymous poster know about this unpublished not-a-rule (What is consideration?)? That his answer would be deleted/disappeared unless he C&P the code?

All that happens is the guy who asked the question doesn't get to see the answer

Destroying content because it doesn't meet your high standards of .... not answering the question, that's whats ridiculous, placing higher level of onus on actual content contributors rather than content destroyers -- thats anti-learning/anti-discussion/anti-perlmonks

:) I avoid moderation when I'm having have a bad hair day

    Now you're confusing participation with moderation & administration. What the moderators do is kind of "meta" relative to the main purpose of the site.

    How would an anonymous poster know about ...

    The same way we all learned these things. And the fact that this anonymous poster chose to "participate" in a way that is not generally acceptable to the community is prima facie evidence that they haven't bothered to learn how this community works. Which is why I feel less bad about supporting the reap call than I might.

    Destroying content ...

    We didn't destroy content. The content was off site, and it's still there. Presumably.

    placing higher level of onus on actual content contributors rather than content destroyers

    Exactly. The participants bear the entire onus for content contribution (with a few fringe exceptions, notably the Categorized Questions and Answers section).

    The moderators, whom you call "content destroyers", have a different responsibility: to keep this place clean of crap, such as unexplained links to unexplained offsite content.

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

      We didn't destroy content.

      The guy who asked the question cannot see the response , doesn't know a response is missing, what do you call that?

    > Destroying content

    Reaping doesn't destroy it's just limiting readability for readers without login ... like bots.

      or the guy who originally asked the question, an anonymous monk
        And beech was capable to repost the "destroyed" content because he bothered to get a login.

        Like Your Mother I think that reaping was too strong, but I agree with Corion that off site snippets should be discouraged. So it's a dilemma.

        Personally I don't have the resources to spend much energy on educating anonymous monks, I think none of us really has. If they are regularly here they should get an account.

        The system isn't perfect and we all need to compromise. So reposting the content in a proper way should solve the issue.

        This was done, thanks to beech.

        Cheers Rolf
