Well I'd have to disagree. In my experience in this community, almost any Perl question, no matter how simple or plain out wrong is almost certainly approved so I'm not sure what this step buys.

Most monks know by the time the reach the higher levels a bit about what's appropriate. It doesn't keep out trolls because they can still respond to any approved node. The only thing I can see that it does is keep Anonymous Monk from posting flamebait root nodes. And if someone really wants to, the can make an alternate nic that's level(5) or higher pretty quickly so it doesn't stop the XP whores.

I really don't think it's that big of a deal. I guess I find it a little vexing in principle. I answer questions at least 10 times more than I ask them so I guess it just bugs me that I have to raise my hand before I speak.
