in reply to External Refernces To code posted on Perl Monks

Definitely not nice to publish/use code snippets created by a perlmonk without giving credit.

But this raises another question: Typically, to give credit to someone, you first ask if it's ok and then list name and email (if the individual approves). But how to give credit to a perlmonk?

Thanks to monk_id won't mean anything to anyone not familiar with perlmonks.com.

In case you know the monk's real name, Thanks to Joe Schmoe will actually reveal the monk's identity if someone correlates the code with a posting on perlmonks.com -- something the helping monk probably won't like to happen.

Recommendations on proper credits to perlmonks personnel?

    You credit the identity and correlate it to the site where the identity exists, unless further identification was given in the node itself.

    Just curious, but are most monks afraid of someone correlating their perlmonks alias with their real name?

      Personally, I'm terrified. To think that my real name would be:

      1) Linked to my username. Egads!
      2) My code would be linked to me. Everything I post is unintentionally wrong and could detonate at any moment.

      All jocular of course - I really don't care except that I have a very, hmm... unique name, and people might try to track me down and sell me magazines or something. Blech.

      Being right, does not endow the right to be rude; politeness costs nothing.
      Being unknowing, is not the same as being stupid.
      Expressing a contrary opinion, whether to the individual or the group, is more often a sign of deeper thought than of cantankerous belligerence.
      Do not mistake your goals as the only goals; your opinion as the only opinion; your confidence as correctness. Saying you know better is not the same as explaining you know better.
