in reply to To Answer, Or Not To Answer....

I can attest to the learning-from-answering-not-quite-correctly. Not with Perl really, but when I was learning front-end, it was more anonymous and lots more bad advice... but the crusties were always quick to ignore the OP's question for a moment to point out why some other answer was wrong... and what the right way would be. I've learned as much from crusties explaining what's wrong with other answers as I've learned from correct answers themselves. Especially if the wrong answer was mine!

I like the idea of waiting a day if it's really comfortable, and then giving it a try if none of those who know everything got to it. :)
