in reply to On asking for help

I second the spirit and content of this post! This is exactly the kind of thing we need. I suggested a simlilar idea in a /msg for all first timers, but if a node like this existed, we could simply /msg first timers a links to it first. I could even see putting this node in the menu of choices after a user clicks "Need Help??" as a first line of defense for silly questions. (maybe it could also have the side effect making people realize this isn't a gossip site...)

bravo and ++ (when i get my votes again =)

[Eily]: It can also be used to force a copy, and remove magic from a variable
[Eily]: there was a post some time ago about variable coming from regex taking more space than the same string defined directly IIRC
[Eily]: and if there's XS, make sure the scalar holds a string representation, that sounds like bad practice though (forcing that on the call side)
[choroba]: You should never pass $1 without double quotes to a sub
[choroba]: or "I should never", at least
[choroba]: that's not the sub's business
