There already are a bunch of “get answers” sites, that are blatantly mercenary…… I hate the ruse they use where they break up a simple answer into multiple pages, so you are forced to look at more ads.

Err. Yes. Hence Stack Overflow. The fact that these sites suck was the motivation behind it. (I linked the post from my original post; did you read it?) I’m not sure who you are trying to convince of what.

Maybe I’ll get me a fake OpenID, and will post some answers there, with links to Perlmonks as answers. ha ha :-)

If your intent is to annoy Stack Overflow users rather than help them, please do the Perl community a favour and stay away.

      I said that feeling the need to turn this into a Perl Monks vs Stack Overflow comparison is misguided, and that bragging about Perl Monks on Stack Overflow would help exactly no one. Neither of these points suggests that you are feeble-minded.

      (However, reading that into what I said does not help your case on said account.)

        I have too much respect for you Aristotle to keep this up. Looking back on it, I should have just upvoted the original node, and kept my mouth shut. Time is the only valid judge of a site's worth..... perlmonks has passed that test, and in a few years we can look back and see how StackOverflow is faring.
