"if a question is left entirely unanswered the OP will surely get the message."
  1. "...will surely...?" Really? I suspect, more likely, the OP will advertize the node in the Chatterbox.
  2. "...left entirely unanswered...? And the last time that happened was when?
  3. "...tolerance of the unwary beginner is what sets this place apart" Seems to me that's neither desirable nor factually true. c.f. StackOverflow and (far worse) those dime-a-dozen, run-of-the-mill sites that purport to provide reliable answers to questions (on almost any subject you care to name). The questions are bad and what good answers appear are -- at best -- difficult to distinguish from the dreck.

One other observation about the "unwary beginner:" If you want to master an avocation, you study the masters... at their sufferance; if you want to succeed at a game, you learn the rules; and if you want to post a question here that's not a reflection of your laziness, read the PerlMonks FAQ. Yes, I know some won't bother... but giving them a precis or a reference has to be better than a deafening silence.
