You forget, this is (still) the no-win era...

i am offended by your attempt at not offending me. Particularly, i don't like it when people try to censor words because pretty much everyone will know what was being said anyway and it stands out more. Swearing being a long habit of mine, i have great difficulty in choosing appropriate words sometimes when writing posts to perlmonks.

The reason i choose to not use those words is because i would like everyone to be able to read my post and not have a chip on their shoulder from my language usage, but rather what i say and how i say it. For my posts to be more effective i find it useful to not cuss, because i have found that jaded people have a filter that as soon as someone starts cussing the flames start raging and/or the post just gets ignored...

When it is appropriate to use "foul" language, use it. Don't fucking censor yourself for our benefit, because we (being a reasonable percentage of the reading audience) damn well know what lies behind the asterisks...

Oh, and yes, 1337 speak should FOAD. And this post is not necessarily in direct response to Popcorn Dave but just kind of a general statement about my views on *ster*sks (word censored for offensive value ;-)

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.
