Your XP is in five figures and you're a saint. Let it go. As was pointed out, you're only providing the desired reaction, assuming the effort is even organized.
I will come forward now and say there are times I wanted to -- you because I thought your tone was awfully harsh. One of the great things about this place is that complete newbies can get help. That is great for Perl. And an unpleasant first encounter might chase people away.
But I was afraid to downgrade you because I didn't know the voting system would keep me anonymous, and because I was in awe of the fact that you were here contributing.
I suspect that if people gave reasons for the --, it would be for the tone.
When I get help, I'm grateful for the help and don't care too much about the manner in which it's delivered. Not everyone is that way.
