My profile says that I've been around for almost 2 years now, so I'd say that I've been here long enough. It's fine to point out errors, but the manner in which you do it leaves a lot to be desired. In your boilerplate, you suggest reading the post a few more times. Unfortunately, first impressions are everything. If I read something and think it's offensive, I'm sure as hell not going to re-read it, just to see if the poster's intentions were neutral. It's human nature to take things at face value unless a deeper meaning is suspected. A simple "I think you meant $hash{$_}++" would have sufficed. However, you decided to get clever. Remember, that tone of voice is lost in written communication. Though you may have meant what you said in jest, I took it the wrong way, and I let it be known. Also of note, this can't be the first time that someone has called you on your tone, otherwise you wouldn't have gone to the trouble of making a boilerplate to pre-defend your words (I realize that you're not serious about the boilerplate, but still, more time than I would have bothered putting in to it).

To summarize, you may be a very good Perl coder, but if people close their ears before listening to what you have to say, your contribution to the community is minimized.
