I wish I could ++ that more then once. It encapsulated by entire views on this matter. People have compared the Chatterbox to a pub or streetcorner. But always a verbal media, where unless you are being recorded, it's transient. And that feeling - sponeniety, the ability to be serious or lighthearted, the community atmosphere, is what I would like to preserve.

If people have a problem that they do not feel that they can talk because their words might be recorded, doesn't that hurt us all as we loose the benefits of their comments, wisdom, jokes, thoughts, and participation.

I've heard people argue both sides about the legality of recording the chatterbox. But when people talk about what they WANT, I've only heard one side. I haven't heard anyone championing "I want to be able to record the chatterbox and repost it". From that I can only assume that while people may want to protect their rights (either to be able repost or not to have their words reposted), from a PerlMonks community perspective, the vocal people want to keep it light and unrecorded.

That's good by me.

      Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
