in thread Use placeholders. For SECURITY!

On your node, here is a fuller response. The attitude that, "Whatever you know and are getting by with is OK" is one that I highly dislike.

I think that's a poor interpretation of what I wrote. It certainly wasn't my intended message. I hope it didn't sound that way to many others and I suspect it didn't because it seems to have been a relatively well liked node. I think (and hope) an attitude as you describe would attract more downvotes.

The message I meant to convey was: what you know now is okay and you have to learn at your own pace and in your own way so don't get hung up on what you don't know, especially not details; concentrate on fundamentals and you will improve.

I think that is appropriate advice to give to a novice-to-intermediate level programmer.
