A negative vote is not the end of the world. And I agree
with the others that posts explaining what is wrong with the
post that was voted down would simply be more clutter.
If you have a post with a negavite point or two, or
even a few of those, that does not mean anything personal
against you. Take it in context of what other posts you have
done. Typically, if you have posted something materially
incorrect, not factual, or not in best use, you will be
gently corrected by one of the many folks here that know
perl better than I know english *smile*
But I would lose no sleep over a post with a couple
negative votes. The time to worry would be when most of your
posts are dipping down there.

Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
