I would agree with every single thing you've said, if it weren't for one small detail. Pay attention, many of you seem to have forgotten this one.

merlyn is not the only perl programmer out there.

Did you get that? Do I need to repeat it again? If merlyn doesn't point out the danger in some piece of code, we have plenty of other people who are qualified and willing to point out the problems in a courteous manner.

    very true.

    but it's his right to post. as much or as little as he chooses.

    and just because there are many who are as accomplished (or moreso), it's not a certainty that an obscure mistake will be caught.

    i'd much rather get two (or more) replies about a security error, even if one is a non-solution-added-pseudo-flame, that have it be ignored.

    and I would hate for ANY monk to feel they should not point something out, even if it's a rehash, and even if they don't have time to do anything more than just say "lookit here...this could come back on you".

    being warned is the courtesy, getting a solution handed on a platter is extra. the first is welcome, the second even moreso, but the first is still usefull in and of itself.

    how is "running with scissors" discourteous?

    anyway, you made your point, although I admit I only read it once, despite the kind suggestion in courteous bold.
