From an initiate...

It's easy to disagree with an article or posting,
and simplistic to say so. "That sucks.", for example.

It takes some thought to support a good article.
Unless you're a politician, you would have to read
a "node" and weigh it's merits in your mind BEFORE
throwing your support behind it.

Biker is correct. Awarding XP for disagreeing is just like
rewarding people for disagreeing.
Disagreement will only increase and new monks will be
less likely to join the Monistary, because of the hostility.

If you want newbee's to continue learning PERL you have
to make them feel that their efforts will be rewarded.
If you want them to continue
visiting the Monistary then they need to feel that they will
not be attacked just for being ignorant. We are hear
to be enlightened, after all.

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