( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I just want to say that I'm offended immensely that my comments from a casual conversation where I don't think too much about what I say have now been recorded in perpetuity as a node for people to comment on and challenge.

We have all agreed not to maintain public logs of the chatterbox. I thought I was speaking in a safe environment, and would have spoken with more care and thought had I known I was going to be publicly logged.

I demand this node be removed, as it violates the "no public logs of the chatterbox" rule.

-- Randal L. Schwartz, Perl hacker

Update: I'm not objecting to my specific comments in this log, but rather the principle of violation of "no public CB logs". Had jptxs asked for my permission to post my comments, I probably would have been happy to give it after a quick review. As it is now, jptxs has violated a public agreement, and I demand accountability for that.
Update 2: Thank you for removing my comments. And I hope this little scuffle brings us to an explicit understanding about the rules of operation. vroom will have to arbitrate the rule as to the permission for public logging, and I will live with his decision to permit public logs or not.

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
