in reply to On silently moving posts

I am surprised to find my recent posting (originally in CUfP) approved in Meditations.

yeah, everybody makes mistake, even monks for over 10 years

if you explained in the first sentence that you wrote new perl software

or if that backstory was in readmore tags,

it might have been easier to see your software announcment belongs in CUFP more than Meditations

Both issues can be fixed , one with an /edit and the other with a /msg janitors

    Yes, I could reduce my node to the essential info and links and, indeed, I now regret not having considered that more carefully prior to posting. But again, it is okay for me to see my text in Meditation. Of course the janitors may want to offer me reversion of the move after some cutback on my part, because for them it might not be that ideal either. Anyway, the backstory fits well in my blog too, so I've copied it there notwithstanding.

      I would recommend that you read again the descriptions at the top of Cool Uses For Perl and Meditations. If those seem unclear (and I would certainly concur that they do), look at the most recent few dozen posts in both sections for patterns for precedent.

      CUFP is now the section for posting code (not including the just-for-fun sections Obfu and Perl Poetry). I moved your post to Meditations because it contains 99% prose, and 1% links to off-site code. IMHO, it is clearly outside the spec for CUFP. It might be appropriate for Perl News.

        I think you should have left it alone, according to the docs, CUFP is the correct section
