in thread Newbies, trying to help, and where to draw the line?

In a realm of thought where TMTOWTDI, and in a language where different versions might contain subtle differences in behavior, and in a forum where the nature of the Q & A doesn't lend itself to allways having a complete picture of the problem, ... who is to decide the definition of "correct" ?

Above all else, this is a discussion forum. People shouldn't have to fear posting just because they aren't 100% certain that their way of solving a problem is "the most correct".

    who is to decide the definition of "correct" ?

    Anyone who tries to run bad code and finds that it doesn't work. Is that democratic enough for you?
