in reply to Chip Monks and Trout Monks
in thread Chip (on the shoulder) Monks

I started programming perl and looked for good sites with documention on it.
I discoverd 4 Sites:

Perlmonks is in the first place somewhere I post when I don't really understand the documention of modules.

But The more I spend on PM the more I feel involved with the community. But with the growth of a community there are more people coming to PM with different opinions. And sometimes people with bad intentions.

IMHO the solution to weed out people with bad intention is(not sure how you say that in english) social control. It means that when somebody is offended you speak up and stand up for the person - immediatly -!!! And making sure it doesn't escalate to immens proportions of flamming eachother.
My opinions may have changed,
but not the fact that I am right

    You have an excellent point; the world would be a much better place if we defended each other from insults, slights, and discrimination.

    There are times, however, when coming to another's defense will not do any good, and may very well do more damage than simply leaving it alone. One person making insulting comments is an annoyance. A dozen people loudly shouting back and forth about someone else is far, far worse.

    I'm not saying you should ignore other users making insulting or degrading comments. But make sure your defense is welcomed before you make it. Give the offended party a chance to handle it their own way. It's better to quietly offer support, and make a vocal defense only when you are sure it will be appreciated, than it is to speak out of turn and possibly make a situation you know nothing about even worse.
