in thread RFC: Review of "Seekers of Perl Wisdom" description?

If you don't know what to search for, then asking people is the best option. On the other hand if entering the post subject into Google returns the answer as one of the first three links, then the poster definitely did not do his/her homework and a LMGTFY is a perfectly appropriate response.

You can usually tell apart those that do not know where to start and those that simply cannot be bothered doing anything themselves. And I really do not care if the second kind is driven away from PerlMonks. The "Gimme cookie and give it to me NOW!" crowd doesn't deserve their cookie. The crowd deserves a slap. One they failed to get from their parents.

    On the other hand if entering the post subject into Google returns the answer as one of the first three links,

    Let's see what happens when I enter the OPs title into google:

    1. Javascript and Ajax
    2. The OPs post here
    3. PHP
    4. PHP
    5. Internet Explorer
    6. PHP
    7. PHP
    8. Wordpress
    9. C#
    10. PHP
    11. iPhone Dev
    12. ASP or Javascript
    13. WebOS/Javascript
    14. IE/C#
    15. PHP
    16. PHP
    17. VB
    18. Javascript
    19. Ajax/Javascript

    With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

    The start of some sanity?

      Right. So you have to tell the search engine that you are looking for answers related to Perl. Huge deal. If OP can't think of that, OP should not be attempting to program. LMGTFY

        So, you know what keywords to add and which ones to omit so that the search engine turns up what you already know you are looking for.

        Were you always so wise? Did you come out of the womb knowing that?

        Never once in your past did you ever have trouble finding something, that you now look back on as trivial?

        OP should not be attempting to program.

        If the OP doesn't know what you know, they shouldn't even bother starting trying to program.
