I just wanted to chime in from the perspective of somebody who hasn't been here all that long (less than a year). I've always found this site to be an invaluable resource and am constantly amazed with the community here; frankly, I find it downright astonishing how quickly and effectively a community of this size can answer any and all questions posited in the SoPW section.
I learn a great deal by just browsing the Newest Nodes section everyday. Most monks blow me away with how knowledgeable and experienced they are. I sort of feel like I'm swimming among the big fish.
I admit that sometimes I am surprised at the shortness of some of the answers I see. Still, I am more than willing to overlook a bit of that for the value in the answer itself--more often than not, it seems to be The Right Way To Do $It. I still think it was one of the coolest things ever when I had a question about WWW::Mechanize::FireFox and Corion was available to point me in the right direction. The guy that wrote the module I was using helped me directly! That was amazing.
Anyways, I just wanted to offer some positivity!
