Names aren't as important in monasteries as you seem to think they are.

If there was not a hierarchy in the monastery, then this statement would be correct.

But it exists, and it's a way for a poster to understand the authenticity and legitimacy of the comments.

When I see certain names on posts, I immediately check out the thread, since I will most likely learn something or get more information about perl. When I see 'Anonymous Monk', I usually skip over the comments. Why waste time on someone who isn't proud enough of his post/work/comments to stand behind it. Many times, I have wasted time on code from 'Anonymous Monk' which doesn't compile or just doesn't work correctly.

Personally, I don't consider this a game, I consider this a very interesting and creative way to improve my perl skills. I'm too math oriented, so I know that I would never have been creative enough to develop www.perlmonks.org, but I do enjoy using the site to grow my perl skills.

Hat's off to the monks!

Thank you
