Unfortunally, 99% of the bullshit answers given here on Perlmonks (and believe, tons of answers here are just bullshit), don't have such a disclaimer.

    Then make the effort and call them on it. It won't change unless someone does.

    But distinguish carefully between theoretically incorrect and practically incorrect.

    Consider your contributions on the recent thread concerning picking random numbers.

      Then make the effort and call them on it.
      That's my point. Any time someone spend "calling" bullshit cannot be spend answering questions. So, it's in everyones interest to not answer if you aren't sure about the answer. (Well, except for the ego and XP of the person who thinks "I rather post bullshit than keep quiet").

[Corion]: Meh. SQL window functions would even make pagination easy/trivial (but not performant), as rank() over (partition by user order by timestamp) / 10 as page would give me a page number for each item, with 10 items per page.
[Corion]: Of course, the query performance for "all items on page 10" is likely worse than rank() between 100 and 109 , but if that means I can write 15 lines of SQL instead of needing to think about how to partition things and how to encode the page size...
[Corion]: ... that would be nice. But alas, I'm currently tied to SQLite as minimum implementation, and it doesn't implement window functions :-(
[Corion]: And I'm not aware of any other serverless SQL implementation that even reaches the capability of SQLite, not to mention surpasses it
