in reply to On silently moving posts

There are, imho, two distintinct parts of the matter: first the possibility to be msged when one post is moved from a section to another (not when is simply moderated, that normally just means approved): we know this is done when a post is reaped as wisely LanX noted. It seems to me at least a very reasonable thing. That said the interface to our beloved site is little static, ironically as static as static were rules of monastic orders. Common sense from people generally compensate the interface's lacks and at the end we can live also without the change to the site that repetedly had come out during the years, with different level of consensus

The second part of the matter is, in my personal opinion, that the move was wrong in this case. You annonced a use for Perl, probably cool somehow (no irony at all, i posted in that section code that stressed the monk's patience, many times).
If i remember correctly is not so uncommon to see just announcement of code in CUFP. I think i'm the last one used to publish code exclusively on PM. We are in 2016 after all.
You have wrote perl code, you have put it on a public repository, you have arranged a website to focalize the project.. for my standards this sounds cool enough.

That said, there is nothing bad in PM's Meditation and your's it is okay for me keep you away from any polemic note. So for me you are completely right.


There are no rules, there are no thumbs..
Reinvent the wheel, then learn The Wheel; may be one day you reinvent one of THE WHEELS.
