    Experience shows that many more people read these sites than use them.

    use Perl; is most likely going to be less conversational in nature than Slashdot and much more fact based. (Thats a wild conversational opinion, not a fact).

    So we're having a debate about one thing or another and a use Perl user comes along who really knows something about this topic. He can either sign up, check his mail, come back, login in and post. Or he can consider it too much bother and move along, he doesn't lose very much and we lose his insight.

    It seems to be that you can put up with a lot of junk in a forum if you get a few good posts from lurkers and passers-by. Even more so when a (primative) junk-filter is built in.

    This is also the reason I'd like to see some central database created by a 3rd party and useable on an opt-in basis by slash sites. That'd save everyone re-registering everywhere, protect username misuse, etc etc. This isn't the place to mention that but as I had to (re)register on my xx-th slash site to post this I'm feeling the need...
