Re^5: Any interest / use in a Perl-Work section? (mud)by Eliana (Scribe)

Oh! I see. I did misread you both. I thought ysth was reassuring the OP that a specific post had been appropriately placed. Your disagreement makes much more sense now. (Not that you were worried :)
Would you have been more sanguine had he said that 'depending on the question, meditations could be an appropriate area'?
As to your first point, I find "SoPRW" even more appealing and also find "Seekers of Perl-Related Wisdom" an even better title.
Oooh, yes! (btw, thanks for responding, I felt guilty pestering you over something so small, knowing how busy y'all are.)
As to what other places those clarifications are doesn't really matter beyond that they are, in fact, other places, and so, clearly, are often not read.
It's challenging, PM has so much information, and is therefore an incredible resource, but it can also be a little confusing or even overwhelming for a newcomer to navigate at first. (I have certainly gotten muddled more than once, and I have an in-house god to help me find what I am looking for!) I must be frustrating though for those who do know what they are doing and who work to put up the guidelines and other info we newbies need to keep hearing the same complaints and questions...
So, yes, it was silly of me to suggest more clarifications. Your solution is simpler and more effective.
Thanks for your patience with (another) bumbling, but well intentioned neophyte. :)
