I understand what you mean. I've been victim of insults for no other reason than I was there. This seems to happen more on the non-professional areas (I found with online bridge people walking away from the table..and I was at the beginners table!) Areas such as this area and the forums over in Sun (2 places I've been, just starting to learn Perl) people seem to be well behaved. I'm guessing it stems to question "how would I like to be treated?". People in code forums or in tutorials have something invested in their on-line time. Whether it's a particular question or a general question (like "what do I do now?"), there's a point to us coming here. Well, that's my first comment posted here, and I hope it makes some sense.

in thread An interesting and poignant quote by r.joseph

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.
