I don't think it fosters stewardship to hold someone accountable for wrongdoing when they are merely asking if an action is appropriate. As was mentioned in an earlier reply, jobs.perl.org is an appropriate place to post job listings. If the OP didn't know that, how would they have found out? Do you suggest that every poster ask if a question is apporpriate in the chatterbox before posting? Doing so, in my opinion, reduces the value of this site tremendously.

    It's impolite to ask a question without doing research yourself first.

    It is a general principle that you search for yourself first before asking in a public forum, and well documented all over the Internet.

    Wasting the time of everyone reading your question, when it is already answered elsewhere, is what reduces the value of this site, and every other public place.

      I hope and pray that this site does not devolve into a "that's already been answered before" site. By your arguments, we should not have schools. All of the knowledge transferred therein is documented and therefore should be able to be found by anyone willing to look. Moreover, the "time wasted" would have been about three seconds unles you're a slow reader. I'm sure that the OP apologizes profusely for wasting your precious time.

        You're missing the point: it's not just my time, but that of every other monk taking the time to read the question. It's the cumulative effect that's so destructive. For every question like this, there's someone out there who says he's not going to bother, and won't answer questions anymore. That's an even bigger loss than my 3 seconds.

        Comparing PerlMonks to a school is flawed as well. For one, none of us has been hired to be a teacher here. For another, a school's primary objective is to teach children to learn. We're not dealing with children here, we're dealing with adults. They should know how to find information on their own.

        I suggest you read the Perl Monks guide to the Monastery, PerlMonks FAQ, and especially 174051#rtfm again.

    ...merely asking if an action is appropriate.

    No argument there; but that's not what happened. It was "Here's a job ad... And oh, btw, sorry if this isn't appropriate; but I can't be bothered to find out how this site works first."

    We're building the house of the future together.
      It may have said that at one point, but I can't comment on things that I did not witness myself. Right now, it doesn't look like that.
