in reply to Guidance for a beginner with a bad reputation
What I've found is that people who take reputation/points seriously generally take themselves too
seriously. But when you get right down to it, very little in life deserves to be taken seriously. After all, it's just life. It's not like we're gonna get out of this thing alive ...
Loosen up, learn Perl, share and have fun. Everything else is just window dressing.
If things get any worse, I'll have to ask you to stop helping me.
