Besides the requirement to log in to leave comment to reduce spam, what other methods do you suggest? Mind you, I am in a similar boat as you: I don't leave a comment if I already don't have an account; can't be bothered to create one.

I notice that anonymous comments can be left ...

  - on, after solving a CAPTCHA;

  - on, by cut & paste of CAPTCHA answer;

  - on wordpress based blogs, after providing an email address.

What do you (as in everbody else, not just scrottie) think any of the above schemes?

Please do continue your postings, political, or otherwise. I read mainly for the non-Perl content.

The proposed sentence added the most important thing about R. In light of that the original sentence is overly verbose.

Not knowing anything about programming, OTOH, original sentence is just as good.

Yes, I have that going too in procmail. I choose to invoke Perl to handle the cleaning bits.

I am sure somebody else would have bad reaction reading "procmail".

Well, I indeed like the concept.

Given that I was shocked already, the points put forward by davegaramond remind me that things could be worse, and your own point, my hate probably will most dissipate. I will need to try harder to disassociate square brackets abuse on some mailing lists.

(Had a visceral reaction just after reading the example code.)

Reduction operators with '[' ']' look horrendously ugly as they remind me of Subject: header of mailing lists which either include the list name or the major topic in square brackets.

But, I will take it even if I don't have to like it.
