in reply to History now influences voting

I rarely downvote nodes, but I think it doesn't make sense to punish downvotes in Meditations or Perl Monks Discussion (How should I spend my votes? -- General Voting Guidelines). Update: ... but it make sense to punish heavy downvoters and then the section doesn't matter. Reminder to me: First coffee, then post.

    I agree that someone should be able to downvote a meditation without being "punished". But I think someone should be able to downvote an objectionable node no matter where it is posted without being punished. That is why everybody can still do that.

    I don't see how Meditations is special to the point that someone choosing a pattern of only downvoting should get a "pass" on taking what they dish out when it comes to a meditation.

[Discipulus]: yes marto I understood
[Corion]: Discipulus: I'm slowly migrating my code to require 5.8.x ;) Most of my code works on 5.6, but Filter::signatures requires 5.10 I think
[Corion]: 5.14 is also a good target, widely available and fairly stable. Also, over five years old, which doesn't push people into a needless upgrade cycle
[Discipulus]: yes I saw your efforts Corion but the pain is worth?
[Corion]: Discipulus: IMO it's not that much pain, but most of the systems I use have a Perl 5.14 or newer on them nowadays
[marto]: the question is more, is Padre still the way new users should be directed?
[Discipulus]: ah ah I have all 5.26 atm but I play alone..
[Corion]: Except this RHEL box, which comes with Perl 5.10.1 , but there I installed my own 5.20.3 for the real Perl programs we run ;)
[Corion]: marto: I used Padre for some time but then switched to Notepad++, since all the funky features I wanted to put into Padre couldn't be made to work, and/or I lost interest :)
[Discipulus]: indeed marto I dunno. I tested once and many years ago. But I'm not the programmer yardstick. I try to install Padre via cpan now just to add a line about it in the issue. Strawberryperl all life long!

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
