I think removing the ability to approve it is silly

I really need to disagree with this. I have rarely approved my own nodes (my feeling on that is closely aligned with tye's statment on blind spots), I have never this felt this behaviour was silly or even inconvienent. In the few cases of that I did approve my own nodes I always had another monk (unfortunately it's usually Ovid) I trust (cough) read it before I approved.

My thinking is: I should be more concerned about the quality of my post (going into posterity) than my convienence of the moment

Just me, the boy and these two monks, no questions asked.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
