Could be any number of reasons for this

  • The monk posting is well respected and/or really popular and is getting the vote because they are usually right and/or just plain popular.
  • The monk voting looked at the code, thought it looked right and voted on it..hey, the poster made a mistake, it is possible that the voter did to...we are only human
  • the person voting was just trying to use up all their votes so they could get some XP....don't tisk, everyone has done it at some point ;-)

If you notice that a post is wrong, then go ahead and (gently) correct the poster with your own post....we are all here to learn something and you don't learn if nobody points out your mistakes.

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.
