I think that often what is written and what is actually meant are two different things.

One can say something and it could be harmless ... but it all depends on the inflection of what is said. When posting a written response there is no inflection ... and things can be taken as something totally different for it is just text on the screen.

Also, people spend long hours thinking and coding ... so it is natural to get on the defensive when their thoughts and ideas are questioned. This is just a normal human reaction. Is it right to do so ... that is a question for each individual.

I think that it took a lot of guts for Guildenstern to post such a meditation ... and I personally ++'ed him/her for it. It shows real understanding to admit that one is wrong ... something we all hate to do.

In conclsion ... this awesome site is here for all Perl keeners ... and to keep it cool we have to all keep our cool and think of ourselves in the situation.

This is my meditation ... one is free to agree or disagree.

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