you have a valid point re: reputation, but you're leaving one thing out

who would you rather get advice from -- someone who can blather on about high-level ( or low-level ), obscure mathematical and quantum topics, or someone who has demonstrated a solid working knowledge of the language in question? reputation ( as i see it ) isn't intended as a show-off factor.

granted, i'd rather have both, but if i need to know why if ( int(rand) ) is always false, i don't want to hear about how i can create an alternate solution that's O(log(n)) rather than the O(n) solution i was working on. . . .

( esp. since O notation is completely lost on me. . . :-)
