in reply to A PerlMonks 'Community' section?

Personally, I wouldn't like having such a section. I think one of the things that makes PM a nice site is the tight focus on Perl (OK, maybe CGI and SQL too ;-). The disaster sent ripples far and wide, and I don't begrudge anyone stating their opinion or their thoughts and feelings, but I'm glad that the focus has returned to "the business".

I also agree with idnopheq: the potential for abuse is too high for my taste.
