in reply to Why Perl Monks Works for Me

I must say that when I first started posting, I was also most embarrassed in how my posts were responded to, to the point of also being reluctant to post. I had initially no real formatting, got blasted for that, and understandably. But then I tried formatting so I could read my own posts easier, but also got blasted for that.

I've learned to format accordingly, even if I do have a bit of time reading it. But then, I also learned to look things up in the proper fashion, for posting an inquiry to the much revered collection of monks, one must hope to pull from them, some interest, and patience. Hence, I tend to note what I have done prior to posting, in my inquiries.

My only downfall to date, being new at this whole process, is understanding where to look, or to be more concise, the wording or reference to my issues or subject matters. IE: A hash is an array, yet before I knew it was a hash, I might look for arrays in super search. (That is not the best demonstration of my short comings, but I thought it the best, simple example, where hash and array can be substituted at will with more advanced terms.)

But I again point out, the patience of others, when I post and format properly, in and of itself is teaching me, and I too am growing fond of this place where monks congregate.

Thank you to all.
