( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Would an IP help that much? I'm not sure it would. If it could log the host, maybe, so it would be easy to identify even anonymous monks, but IPs are hard to recognize. I'm afraid I don't have a solution beyond eliminating anonymous posting altogether, and whether that should be done or not I won't say. I've thought about this at length before, and written about it even for some other sites; I don't particularly want to go into that now.

I don't care what the Anonymous Monk said about my code. I was bored and wrote that and thought it had some value, but in that person's opinion it didn't. Too bad they couldn't have been a little nicer about it :)

I think we can all handle an occasional troll here and there, but if such things become common, I really hope we can come up with something to keep this from becoming another slashdot.

Just my thoughts on the subject.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
