( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
How should we resolve this? I feel you should have provided some mechanisms for this, rather than just throwing the question out - that makes it seem rhetorical. We could do a quick poll, or a vote or something. But it seems that the way you handled it worked quite well. (I guess)You contacted the person responsible, said something, they changed their mind and all was OK again.
Well, I didn't provide a mechanism because I didn't have that part of it figured out yet. Could be an edict from vroom, for all I care, or some sort of democratic process that doesn't require a recount. {grin}

And I'll disagree with you on the way I handled it turning out well. I invoked percieved authority, and cited non-existing standards. Now that my bluff was called (grin), I'd never be able to get that kind of response again. So the next time around that something appears, we are now more ambiguous, rather than less. Unfortunately, I've now set exactly the opposite precedent I wanted.

So we still have the problem on the table. Let's discuss it until it's resolved, because until it's resolved, I must be a lot more guarded in the chatterbox, and I don't like that (although I'll adapt to that if it turns out to be the case).

Title:
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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
