Perl articles sectionby cjf (Parson)

I've often come across interesting Perl articles that I thought others might find useful (such as mod_perl in 30 minutes) and considered posting a link to it here. The question that immediately comes to my mind is where should I post it? Perl News doesn't allow for user submissions, and the only other section that seems even close to appropriate is Meditations.
There are occasionally articles posted to meditations, but it is often seen as xp whoring and inappropriate for the section (maybe because it's not a meditation). I think this does deter people from bringing our attention to interesting articles. If there was a separate section for links to articles, possibly with voting disabled on them (or no xp going to the submitter) we'd end up with a lot more people submitting articles.
So what say you? Should we assume everyone will find articles on their own? Should links to articles continue to be posted in meditations?
