I have to agree with tilly
on this one. I just started programming in perl about 4 or 5 months ago. I have taken alot from my fellow monks here at PM. I haven't yet had the chance to return the favor and really contribute back because I don't feel my skills are up to the level of where they should be to give advise.
This is my 6th write-up. My previous five were mainly opinions just like this (well, one code posting). I truly want to contribute back to PM as much as I can, but for now, all I feel comfortable offering is 'opinions' and responses to simpler questions.
My first couple postings to PM were as an Anonymous Monk. I have to say that responses I got to those particular postings are what caused me to join PM and continue to enjoy learning perl. I thought to myself..self...this is a great place! People here are even willing to help me answer my idiot questions...WOW!
I think some postings by AM get a bad rap just because they are that..'postings by an AM' which are viewed as people just trying to take from the system with no plans of giving back. If we shoot down all AM postings, why would those people care to join PM? Had I been shot down in this way, I probably would never have given back either, but since I received helpful responses, I realized what a great place PM was
Ahh..the odd dog is a strange beast indeed, nobody wants him, but he always seems to be there.
