in reply to Stubborn as a Saint

I do not consider myself a high-ranked monk, nor do I think of myself as a great perl programmer - most of what I know I learned in painful ways and there are large areas of perl that are still dark magic to me.

I have on several occassions not voiced my opinion in a thread because I figured somebody who was more capable of answering the question ( eg, I may know it doesn't work but cannot explain why ) would answer later.

At others times I have not corrected a monk I respect because I just assumed the monk knew what they were doing and I had missed ( as usual ) something obvious.

Just as I have taught myself to vote for an article based solely on its merits and not on the author, it seems now I will have to teach myself to suggest corrections based solely on the code, not on who wrote it. That is, I think, going to be much harder.
