Perlmonks is a great quoting machine.

When you join, you are invited to reasearch, and even encouraged to prepare for a good question. There is even an advanced essay on how to research.

As a consequence, when you become an experienced monk, you quote and link whenever you can, also because you want to conform to the other great monastery chant: "don't reinvent the wheel".

As merlyn's links and quotes became legendary (have you ever seen any of his I-have-a-column-about-that answers?) many monks contributed to the Tutorials, so that, when the time comes, we are able to link to something that we consider appropriate. (I did it!)

Thus, I am on the "first-tutorial-and-then-link" side.

Now, let me finish by offering you some feedback on the great force of PerlMonks.
