  • I don't get what all the fuss is about, but perhaps you were overdoing it a little? Perhaps you should have done what lots of blog posters are doing these days: post a link to the site with a bit of comment of your own. Except, it'd be on usenet, not in a blog.

    Now, it looks a bit, not, it looks a lot like multiposting. Except it's not even your own post.

    It appears it's a fine balance you have to strike.

      That basically sums up my problems with it. It's alright, I think, if you're like "over on perlmonks someone brought up the following problem which I found interesting ... and here is my extra input and/or questions .... and maybe someone could clarify these things for me or tell me how brilliant I am.".

      As for being plonked by Abigail, pfffft.... I think he just has a personal issue with perlmonks and doesn't want to be reminded it exists. You won't have to waste time justifying your posts anymore, at least. :)

      But it is annoying, with the tremendous amount of information to go through, trying to see only the interesting things, so you can try to understand why Abigail is quick to plonk.
