I'm kind of ambivalent on the issue ... on one hand, I don't read p5p. So news of new interpreter bugs is actually interesting to me. And, I imagine, quite a number of monks.

On the other hand, I can see the argument that if we want to know what's going on with p5p, we should just subscribe to it. Doesn't cost anything.

Finally, I suppose the question is largely of relevancy. If these really are simply reposts (definite possibility, but so far two can just be ascribed to freakish coincidence), how relevant are they to the average monk who may not be subscribed to p5p? If you're referring to jesuashok's last and third last (as of this moment) posts (his previous SoPW is 'my' with 'if 0' retains old value, which probably wasn't on p5p as it has been beaten to death already), I would kind of lean towards "of little interest." If they are honestly things he found, which that intervening SoPW is somewhat evidence of, then relevancy to everyone (but him) is irrelevent - they are fine.

It is kinda freakish if two of the last three SoPWs are ripped from p5p, though. Still a strong coincidence. I would highly encourage the OP to say where he's getting this stuff from if he is ripping it from p5p. Perhaps he wants better explanations than p5p is giving (since p5p is probably more geared towards those who have a good understanding of the inner workings of the interpreter). That's fine, too - just say so.
