Like I said, and as you can now plainly see, “the internal politics of PerlMonks are ... interesting, to say the least.”

And, I would say, they are beside the point.   (And, actually, it is not the most anti-social site of its class that I have ever yet encountered.)

Perlmonks-dot-com is one of the oldest technical forum sites on the Internet, and it continues to succeed at its core mission.   Specifically:   it remains one of the very best sites on the Internet at which you can (quickly!) find (excellent!) information about the Perl language, and about esoteric computer-science topics in general.   Its archive of easily-searchable past postings is second to none.

People Customers do not come to this site to listen to long-time participants’s personal opinions of one another, nor for their “votes” about one another’s postings.   They come here for timely answers and for excellent, well-seasoned advice.   And, on both counts, they get what they came for.

Also, one of the long-time technical “quirks” of this site is that, if for any reason your session is lost while you are writing a post, PM will not hold your post and ask you to log back in, as most forum sites do.   Instead, it will silently accept your post ... as coming from Anonymous!   (If this happens to you, your post is now gone.)   Likewise if you simply forget to log in, the site will accept your post.   Thus, Anonymous Monk is not entirely “the favorite refuge of cowards.”   And, in any case, I predict that it will never, ever change.
