Juat recently I found myself answering a Re:Re:Re:Re:Re:Re:Re question from a new Monk. The thread started here Faster Search Engine. As the Re's wore on the desire to say RTFM/Get a book increased. I love Perl and as a relative newbie myself (to Perl anyway) who has benefited from the benevolance of others feel there is something of a debt of honour to be repaid. My question is "How much is too much?" Where do you draw the line between being a homework troll and trying to offer help? Is it as simple as whatever I feel like at the time and more importantly have time for? Just interested to hear some other views.
