I like CTFT, at least when you are moving the discussion in a new direction. But the problem with it is that it usually means (based on the little experience I've had with perlmonks) that the title doesn't reflect what it was in response to.

Snippets of code should be wrapped in

<pre> tags. In fact, <pre>
tags should generally be avoided. If they must

taken to ensure that their contents do not
have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent
horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor
