Asking for clarification is a challenge?
Don't understand me wrong. I like such challenges. I just wanted to give you some background why I am continuing this discussion, perhaps beyond what some would find reasonable. :)

A thread is a room, someone from the left says something, someone from the right says something, they're all wearing Anonymous Monk, when the thread ends, when they leave the room, you don't even know which side of the room they were standing in, much less whom they are, or what computer they posted from, they're still Anonymous Monk, faceless, nameless, anyone, any dog
You just confirmed my argument: branding the AM when inside a thread, takes away their "indistinguishableness" inside the thread. of course you still cannot link them to a physical person, but that is already a property all monks enjoy by virtue of having a "username" here (unless you use your *real* name as a username, which few, if any, do).

I hope I explained now clearly enough why "branding" takes away some of the anonimity (in my definition) of posting as an AM.

A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James

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