Perlmonks - democracy or oligarchy?
in thread Newbies, trying to help, and where to draw the line?
Hubris is the democratic urge to raise oneself up to the gods, and at the monastery that is accomplished by posting.
However, let us not do this at the expense of the people we are trying to help. A broken solution is a broken solution: to post such, is to attempt to raise yourself at the expense of others. I ask you to either not post, or post with qualifications, if there's a chance you are posting an ineffective solution.
