( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
It just seems that the monks on there have known each other for years

Huh?! I post in the chatterbox all of the time. I don't know anyone.*

What you are perceiving is just an illusion.

Pay attention. A new user will sign up, chat a couple of times, disappear. The next day, when they reappear, several people will be all "Howdy" and "Welcome back" like they had the least idea in the world who this person, who they've read a couple of dozen words of text from, is.

Just don't whine or be insulting (that is, pretend to be mature, whether you are or not) and soon it'll almost be like having real friends (well, on some severely superficial level, but "beggars", ya know?).

It's fun! And if you are very careful to not let on where you live, then you don't even have to worry about them dropping by (no, Clive, really, I enjoyed it; I'm not talking about you, honest) and drinking your beer.

* Sure, there are a couple of names that I'm likely to recognize because they recently annoyed me, but my memory isn't very good so most days there aren't even very many of those.

Note for the humor-impaled, there is much truth and many lies in what I've said. If you can't figure out which is which, then you deserve a full refund of the purchase price.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
