in reply to I think Casey West is right

I saw the question, thought it was vague and uninteresting to me. But I agree that it would be useful to others and in no way polluted Perl Monks. Should not have been reaped.

It has always astounded me that for every reply to a (purportedly) stupid question excoriating the poster to RTFM, there are several replies offering contructive help. If you don't think think the post is worth your time, hit the "back" button and let people who are willing to help, do so. It's not that hard.

Is this a place where you race to answer the hard questions and show your elitism by slamming the newbies? Or is this one more resource for the Perl community, helping whoever get a resolution to a problem?

I have thick skin and will put up with a lot for the valuable help available here. But are we advancing the cause by jumping down the throat of so many people so often?
