A lot of new SOPWs are being rebuked with "This is a FAQ -- why are you asking before you search?" or simply being considered and eaten
But for people who don't have the big perl brain on, some questions seem legitimate. It took me some time to get used to the network of resources, and time perusing the various docs that come with perl to understand how to use them. In the interest of treating new people with the velvet glove, rather than the iron fist, I suggest the following :
- When a node is previewed, show a list of nodes with the exact same title.
- Don't let people post nodes titled m/^(.*?)\bquestion/.
- Especially if $1 m /^quick|^fast|^easy/.
