Update: OK, OK, so these sound more like commandments than sins. I just figure given the religious undertones of the site we could use a hard point of reference when people do Bad Things.
  1. Thou shalt not post a Frequently Asked Question, nor shalt thou post what can be found through a trivial search.
  2. Thou shalt not post homework and attempt to pass it off as a legitimate "problem". Homework shall be labeled as such and help shall flow.
  3. Thou shalt not re-invent the wheel. Your Gods have blessed upon thee their Modules, and have declared these Modules fair and complete.
  4. Thou shalt not post without rich and accurate descriptions. Vague problems will result in, at best, vague answers.
  5. Thou shalt always use strict and warnings.
  6. Thou shalt always check for errors. All significant functions will report to thyself a success or failure, and error messages will appear in $! (or $@).
  7. Thou shalt not post SOPW questions in inappropriate places. Chatterbox solutions do not benefit the community.
  8. ...?
