in reply to Nostalgic

I was thinking about this last night on my ride home in fact. I was thinking that
  • The site doesn't show an error 70% of the time
  • The quality of many of the answers seem to be improving overall. It seems like people take more time in what they write. Maybe all the attacks on poor code being posted as answers combined with the general raise in clue level of the PerlMonks community (well, the regulars at least) has actually begun to make this a viable resource. Kudos to all of us.

    The first comment shows that vroom really does keep on working on the site - and it shows. :-)

    But I think you phrased the cause of the general rise in clue level poorly. Rather than "attack", "constructive criticism". The difference is not always obvious to the casual bystander, but it is significant. The first indicates that you want to drive out people who want to be helpful but have not (yet) learned enough to give really good advice. The second shows that you want to help people get to the point where good intentions can truly translate into good deeds.

    Based on private conversations with you, I believe that you really do try for the second. (Even if you do get understandably frustrated over some issues.)
