in thread Site facelift?

I have been reading perlmonks for more than 7 years, and IMO the OP is right. It's slow and I can think of some (optional!) javascript functions that help following the threads (I can think of it because I implemented it in my own software. You know the software, is it more complicated to use than perlmonks?)
The problem is that the software here seems unmaintainable and that the server has some problems that have to do with a combination of OS and database. And of course with a lack of time that people have. But why do people here react almost offended when somebody tells the truth? At least the slowness is a fact, although it seems impossible at the moment to do something about it.

    A newcomer stops by, and tells the old guard they're old, ugly, and they are doing it wrong, and they're in need of plastic surgery, and they're almost offended? Maybe its because

    • they're not robots
    • its not the truth
    • its at best a quasi truth
    • its already known
    • it was expressed in a rude manner
    • it makes assumptions and implications, and jumps to conclusions
    • all of the above in the name of buzzwords
    • didn't even search for previous suggestions
      Let me tell you a more relevant reason - The old guards don't want to change.
        The old guard aren't even present

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
