in reply to What is a troll?

PerlMonks is one of the oldest online international programming communities on the Internet.   It attracts all kinds of people – most of whom are opinionated.   But, if you want to know anything about the Perl language, this is the “go to” place ... and that, in the end, is the true point of it all.   Not trolling, or judging other people, and certainly not politics.   The site will never be marginalized, and neither will Perl, because both serve a valuable ongoing purpose.

You decide if things like experience-points matter to you.   If you play a game to get the high-score, go for that high score and stand proudly when they crown you Pope.   Otherwise, forget about it, and just stay focused on that soul who has a question ... who is dead in the water with Hell breathing down his neck ... and who needs the proper answer fast.   That person is why PerlMonks exists, and that person, more than anyone else, is who it serves.

You will find that you actually have very little time to spend on questions like, “What is a troll?”

    "You decide if things like experience-points matter to you."

    You've expended a great deal of time complaining here in many threads that you've been downvoted and lost XP.

    "just stay focused on that soul who has a question ... who is dead in the water with Hell breathing down his neck ... and who needs the proper answer fast"

    The answers you give here are by far absolutely terrible advice, you're repeatedly called out for giving the same tired incorrect advice, but you make no apology for regurgitating it time and time again. The only reason Worst Nodes isn't full of your name is because you stopped posting between 28/10/2015 and 12/05/2017.
