Nicely done Russ! I must concur that it irks me to see responses which are clearly condescending (especially when they don't even answer the question or point to a faq or help in any way). Yes, we can't all be babies and take everything personally or feel immediately confrontational when we find ourselves the recipient of criticism... but there is a difference between constructive and destructive. Belittlement of those with less experience (or even intelligence if such could be discerned from a bunch of text on a screen) will not make PerlMonks a nurturing community where PerlHackers at all experience levels feel comfortable to contribute and benefit.

St. Wall knows that articulation and expressiveness depend on vocabulary and experience. Just because someone doesn't know something doesn't mean they don't want to know. There's nothing wrong with a primitive vocabulary while you're lerning a language. Let's enter this Monastery with shalom to help each other (and all who enter here) to become better Perl coders... and nicer people. That's what I would wish for this place. TTFN & Shalom.
