You're right. He doesn't use the word "require". He does however say "I'd like to suggest that we provide answers using standard modules, when those solutions are adequate," which appears to suggest that he wants us to offer solutions based on something other than what we might have posted originally. That is what I meant with 'require".
You made me think of another thing, as well. I interpreted the OP as saying something like "instead of posting stuff with modules that are not well-known, post stuff written using the core language, or with modules that are part of the distribution." This second issue depends greatly on what we think "standard modules" means. For me those are the ones that come with the Perl distribution, and pbeckingham states here that this is what he meant.
But we first have to arrive at a consensus about which modules are standard (core, core plus DBI, etc.), which is a discussion onto itself. I wonder how many monks are posting stuff using modules they consider to be standard, but which others do not.
