    The surprising comment was that ruby-monks and python-monks probably wouldn't work anyway.

    A RubyMonks would fail because it would be redundant. There's nothing it does that comp.lang.ruby doesn't already accomplish. Nothing I care about, anyway.

    A Perl progammer I met who also does Ruby told me once that PerlMonks was a friendlier version of comp.lang.perl.misc, which I thought was a pretty telling comment.

    • A RubyMonks would fail because it would be redundant. There's nothing it does that comp.lang.ruby doesn't already accomplish.

      It works in a web browser, for one--or does the web interface to c.l.r really not make you want to stab yourself in the face with cutlery?

      • Well, if Google would stop screwing with the interface...

        Anyway, there's also ruby-forum [ruby-forum.com]. There are other Ruby forums out there, too, I think. That's another reason a RubyMonks wouldn't really work - the "market" is already saturated.

    • I've never liked newsgroups and did not use comp.lang.perl.misc that much. I like the "friendlier" version though :)
