I broke up with my girlfriend in 2016, and I was trying to find a way to get over it. So, I decided to learn something. Perl seemed like the best choice for me, so I began reading online. I searched for words like "how to learn perl in hours" and free perl scripts, and somehow I ran across PerlMonks.
I created an account here, because I saw that the website is active and you can get really good advice here in minutes! You don't have to wait days and weeks for a response.
I also like that threads are always open, and you can add a comment to a threat even years later. On StackOverflow.com threads get closed after awhile. That site feels more like a dictatorship. PerlMonks is just the opposite. This place feels more friendly. Here you feel like your comments are being appreciated, and conversation is being encouraged rather than shut down. So, I must say this site feels a lot more positive.
