This post bothers me for several reasons:
- It is poorly formatted. Ya, I know what you are saying. He is a newbie and you can't correct root posts. But when I was a newbie, I used the preview button, and figured out that I needed HTML tags to make it look nice.
- Secondly, questions such as this go into Seekers of Perl Wisdom, not Perl Monks Discussion.
- Finally, I find it somewhat insulting to the PerlMonks community that he comes here with a question and can't even com back for the answer, but needs it e-mailed to him. If I knew the answer, I wouldn't.
I feel that when people vote --, they should post what is wrong with it unless it is already posted, so this post was just to back up that feeling. (Although in this particular case, voting on Anonymous Monk doesn't really matter, but that is beside the point.)
