in reply to What!? Where are the flames?
It's nice to browse the Monastery at 7 AM and find such a pleasant post...
A few points to build on Ovid's thoughts on the Monastery...
I'm glad a newer member of our family has noticed the effort (by most monks) taken to make new additions feel a valid part of the community from the beginning. As I implored in New Posts / Laziness, we must all make this effort and ensure everybody goes the extra mile to accommodate.
I think we all realise how a few helpful links to valuable information, provided with encouraging words and a welcome message serve our Perl public better than "RTFM, you swine! Don't bother me! I'm too busy surfing the net!" Well, if you're too busy surfing PerlMonks to reply properly and informatively to a question, what exactly are you doing while you're here?
Perhaps this is the start of proving Casey West wrong?
I never thought he was right in the first place :)
