Let's put it this way. I joined Perlmonks a while back, and just lurked. Although I've programmed for a while, I'm only a bioinformatician, so a lot of the really technical stuff goes over my head. And when I did finally post a question it was just programming related, not PERL related.
Nevertheless, in half an hour two saints (one writes for O'Reilly!) and a monk responded with really useful feedback! No flames or rubbish, just honest to goodness consideration.
That's what makes PerlMonks, a consideration and willingness to help others. It would be different (and bad) if this place were called PERL 5cr1ptk1dd135!
Thanks for all your help monks!
