How do you know it's a good answer? I agree to an extent about "the blind leading the blind" but that even happens now. There are quite a few monks that
I can be pretty sure that their code works and works fairly well no matter how quick it was cobbled together, ( tye
) to name just a few. If I thought about it, I could probably come up with a 50 or 60 more. I think when you hang around enough you get a good feeling for who knows what they're doing. If you're not
sure you test the answer.
But on the other hand, people giving answers (even inefficient or broken ones) is an even better way to learn as almost always someone will point out flaws
in their answer to the asker and the answerer. Now they both know and will probably code better for it.
