Forgive the strong language, but I think it's an accurate depiction of what took place.

This is hard for us to evaluate this seeing as it's a root node in meditations and not a reply to the post in question.

... in both of these cases, you've simply slammed someone for their code and not offered corrections.

I agree with you that it's better to, at the very least, give the monk an idea what they did wrong and point them in the right direction. See Should I write your code ? for opinions on how far to help new monks along.

That said, I don't see a huge problem with a flame or two, all forums have them and there are measures in place here to deal with them. Downvote the node, possibly consider it for reaping, and move along. If someone gets a flame along with the typical five or more excellent replies to their question I don't think it will turn them off Perl or this site.
