If "learning stuff" increases your marketability, then yes, it's true.

    Suppose this is the sentiment I'd agree with. I've basically never* been asked about my participation on PerlMonks. I have, however, used some of the trickery I've learned here to place me ahead of the pack in my chosen niche.

    *I can only recall being asked one single time in the past decade, by a coworker, if I was "on" this site...

      From my point of view, it's not so much as "having an account on PM" that counts. It's more like, if someone tries to get a job as Perl programmer but doesn't know that (s)he can search PM for answers, that person is bound to run into troubles either during the job interview or the probation period...

      "I know what i'm doing! Look, what could possibly go wrong? All i have to pull this lever like so, and then press this button here like ArghhhhhaaAaAAAaaagraaaAAaa!!!"
