I would not want read questions which could be solved by searching their titles in google before that they are published in perlmonks.

Noone is forcing you to do so.

Every Perl question it is possible to ask could probably be answered by searching the internet; and there are plenty of other places on the internet where the OP of that question could have gone to ask, only to be told that it was too simple for the incumbents there to bother helping him.

This place has historically been more tolerant of beginners and their questions, recognising that it is hard to know where to look, or even frame the question, if you don't really know what you are looking for.

If this place is to move to a stance where you are the arbiter of what is an interesting or legitimate question -- where RTFM or LetMeGoogleThatForYou is the norm -- then this place becomes just like all those other places, and ceases to serve any purpose.


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?
