|Do you know where your variables are?|
... Gee, I guess when I asked my question I sounded like I knew alot more about Perl than I was letting on?
Actually no, I think he meant you've had an account on perlmonks before and you've created a new account
But that is a bizzare comment, since,
A socket-puppet is a rare thing on PerlMonks, some idiot creating a throwaway account, to create the illusion of popular support -- responding to his own comments saying "yes, i agree, great idea" -- and you merely asked for help
I guess your writing style could be mistaken for one or two frequent posters, but the charge of sock-puppetry really doesn't hold
If you're open to commentary on your style, I might classify it as a bit flowery or maybe even hoity-toity -- a fakakta characterization I know :)
My suggestion is skip the yada yada and try to get to the point sooner :) How do I post a question effectively?
