The way I handle this, is if *think* I know the answer but am not 100% sure, I will
test it out quickly if I can. If it works for me and I can't find an obvious flaw,
then I will still post with a warning like "I think this works"

Nothing is perfect, there will always be wrong answers, and
they will be used. But I don't think this forum is broken into 2 distinct groups
of "Teacher" and "Student", I think we are all learning so if an honest attempt is made at
helping then I think there is value there. Plus, I know if a flawed answer is posted, chances are
someone will yell at me and I will learn too.

I remember a problem I asked about over a year ago - a bunch of the first
answers were wrong but shielded with the "I think this may be right" warning...
No, they were not right but the ideas presented lead me to find a correct solution.
Without those "wrong" answers I would not have solved the problem.

So there's my 2 cents, YMMV :-)

      Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
