in reply to Using www::Mechanize

I'd like to rephrase my last reply without taking anything away from it...

This is a place where many significant Perl coders hang out. I assume many of them review and post on this site while at work (regardless of what their day job is), and also while at home. I'm but a humble intermediary coder (depending on the context), but I sometimes let my emotions wreak havoc.

It bothers me when I see poorly presented questions, as I'm learning how much it frustrates other monks who have better things to do. I used to get upset with terse responses. Now I'm starting to understand.

To the OP: You might not have read How do I post a question effectively?, but it isn't fair to assume that this is just some one-off PHP forum you're in either.

    Kudos to ItsyBitsy for cleaning up the post.

    I'm sorry for my rant.

    Update: unfortunately, most won't see what my rant was about as the original was edited. Either way, it is what it is, and OP stepped up to the plate and did what was right.

      Finally got it. I had to add an agent alias. It was answered on stack overflow- link here.

        Speaking only for myself, I get disgusted when I see cross posts.

        At least you admitted it. Just don't do it again. It is disrespectful to those in each community imho. Post in one location and if nothing comes up, post in another. Don't hit up multiple at the same time. It really isn't cool (and that is putting it nicely by the standards I've been raised in), and in fact is often very disrespectful, as one community is often forgotten about because an answer comes in on the other. The next time we see the poster, it is for another question with no due respect given for the response they received the last time they were here. You seem understanding to the point where you get it, capiche? ;)
