I was tempted to downvote as I totally disagree with your point of view :) Then I thought "he is a sympathetic good fellow" and I upvoted you as always: small acts can have big consequences in long time terms
Thanks for letting me know. :) Curiously, I feel the same way. I always enjoy and upvote your posts even when I disagree with them.

Reminds me of Tit for tat, which evolutionary psychologists sometimes use to explain reciprocal altruism in animal communities. Also a good way to play Prisoner's dilemma.

I'll cover this interesting topic in future episodes, along with the neurotransmitter Dopamine, outed at the Role of Dopamine in Gamification. BTW, I've experienced a severe addiction to code golf and now suspect Dopamine was implicated. Ditto for those who've felt "addicted" to Perl Monks (which also uses gamification).

The only other relevant brain chemical I'm aware of is the neuropeptide Oxytocin, well known for creating feelings of trust (crucial to good teamwork). If anyone knows of other relevant brain chemicals, please let us know, so I can include them in later episodes.

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.
