I did say that I was sure merlyn was not like that in real life. What I was saying is that consideration needs to be taken when writing to help ensure that what is written in the "textual world" doesn't come across wrong. Quite often it seems like merlyn would benefit from putting himself in the questioner's shoes. An answer to an experienced Perl programmer can be more terse, but a newbie would benefit far more from a detailed explanation.
