High expirience is ONLY a reflection of a users commitment to participating in the free exchange of Perl knowlege and values, as it should be. You can't get allot of expirience without posting, and if you post garbage you don't get any reputation. The system seems to work.
Your main 'block' on this is that you think that expirience/reputation translates to Perl Expertise While there is a wealth of Perl expirience on the site, some of us are truely participating in the site to 'gain' expertise and our expirience relfects how much we keep banging at that process.
