I tend to give more positive than negative votes, but I
usually let my negative vote speak for itself. Giving a reason
every time would just add to the clutter, and not help the
overall value of the site at all. Most times, if a question is
not clear or needs more information, I will msg the person or
reply with a "please clarify" post. Very basic posts that
show no effort on the part of the poster to solve it themselves
(i.e. perldoc perlfunc) fall into this category. I am more than
willing to help people out with problems that may seem simple
to me, but I feel that perlmonks should not be a replacement
for the perl faq or the Learning Perl book.
This is not meant as a dig on your post - by the very fact that
you posted this here, and took some time and thought in doing
so, indicates that you are not the type of person who I would
vote down without an explanation. I save that for the Anonymous
Monks that say: "What does the $_ mean that I keep seeing everywhere?"
