Yahoo / PerlMonks

What an interesting thread -- I am going to reply, anyway.

I don't log into perlmonks daily and check things out. When I have questions, I normally hit Yahoo! up for answers, and scan through the list of links it returned.

If I see an link to perlmonks, I normally go there (here) first. Why? For virtually all of the reasons listed by sundialsvc4. From time to time I start here, but most of the time not.

I could pick on the user interface and the quirks in the search (I mean, really, WHY does Yahoo and Google do a better job of searching perlmonks than perlmonks does????), but by and large, it is what it is, and I find it's usefulness enough to keep me coming back.

I am by no means a N0081E, but sometimes asking a question really IS the fastest and best way to get a real answer. Mindless replies like RTFM waste everyone's time and resources -- and thankfully, it has been a LONG time since that has happened to me here.

Good post; good comments. I second the thoughts and feelings!
