Nicely put. I wish I could give it all my votes for the day.
If you do feel that someone's post is based on laziness or stupidity
or some lacking trait then
simply post a link to the appropriate perldoc. Heck, most
posts could use a link to perldocs, that way some of
us can learn more about what's in the perldocs or simply
have our memory refreshed. If someone gets enough posts
that point them to perldocs then they might get the idea
that they should do a little more research before posting, myself
included. I don't mean to imply that all posts deserve a simple RTFM
reply with a link. Obviously some posts deserve more attention than that.

Does this include vnpandey too? :)
