    I agree.

    I've been wondering if anyone was going to remove mdillon as a keyword for Perl Monks Discussion for some time now. I also doubt that 'The' is a good key word for Newest Nodes. I don't think we need another group of people with editor rights for that though, just make it available to monks at a certain level. (6 seems pretty popular)

    Ok, I added the 'I_see_my_new_writeup' keyword. I wanted to do something like 'I_see_my_new_writeup!_Yay!' but it wouldn't accept words that long. I did it to be funny (and still is to me :P), and didn't realize it would cause problems. I apologize for any problems and/or ugliness it caused when displaying the page.

    I've also noticed that someone added the keyword 'length' to Perl Monks User Search. When I first saw it, it made sense. I was looking at someone's list of posts (chromatic's I think) and I noticed the keyword. But then I noticed that it was on my list of posts too, and I started thinking that someone had gone and added that keyword to a bunch of users. So I went to a new user's list of posts (none) and saw the same keyword. I realized that the keyword was part of the page, and not associated with a particular user. Is this a bug, a feature, or something so minor as to be ignored?

      It is actually set to node 6364, aka Perl Monk User Writeups, and which monk you are looking at is simply a paramater passed in - they are all the same page. "length" is a terrible keyword in this circumstance. I would consider it not a bug or a feature, but simply another manifestation of the current problem brought up by this thread.
