By trying not to offend, you're also not informing someone of what is wrong. I've had you correct one of my posts and found it useful since it helped explain something which I clearly didn't understand. It would have been much less useful, not to mention more offensive (and I really shouldn't use the word "more" there, since the post wasn't offensive at all), if you had simply said something like "that's wrong" without giving an explanation why. Personally I'd rather have you reply to one of my posts with "Hey dumbass, that's the stupidest thing I've ever seen, you should have done ..." than something like "That's not right, reply if you don't know what's wrong with it" or "running with scissors" or "sticking paperclip in socket" or "watch out, that's poison ivy"

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.
