in thread Abigail-II and some thoughts

"their attitudes could easily deter people from persuing perlmonks, perl, programming, or some combination of the three.

Hm... perlmonks, might be; perl and programming, absolutely not. This is just one of many web sites you can ask questions, and most of the people don't take this site as home, but rather a bar where they can go for a talk, asking questions, providing answers if they can.

Just because being treated rudely by someone on some web site, one will stop programming? That is too dramatic. The power of rudeness is being over-estimated, and yet the nerve of a normal human being has been under-estimated.

I actually even doute the perl monk part. If someone being rude at you, you will never visit their home again, but this is really not anyone's home, vitually nobody owns it, yet it is owned by everyone. Put it in this way, will you move out from your own home, just because someone came and said something rude to you? very unlikely! The same thing here, as this is your home, not someone else's.

    Who are these 'most' you speak of? Quite honestly, if most of the people I see here day after day also frequent other sites as much as here, then Im very impressed with their multi-tasking abilities. Or maybe they never sleep?

    For the record, PM is plenty for me, help, home, friends, casual chat. Who needs more?

      Gee, castaway, I was actually wondering if you ever slept ;-)

    Let's not start making analogies. It's easy to associate two things, but we'll get muddled in the details of where they relate or not. For someone like me, I'm relaxed. If someone tries to write something, and it turns out to be dangerous, I would simply warn people and be factual about it. And if it was a good try in ernest, try to get them to learn a bit more than usual. If you look at some people's responses, you get some harsh responses. Example: "your code sucks." And it's not by some n00b. Having someone with some sorta sway in the community telling you your code isn't worht a damn, or "sucks", is very disheartening. I rememebr when learning to do something once in /my/ life, and though it doesn't particularly haunt me, I do remember, and have become self conscious about that something.
