I know this is not a question, but as an anonymonk, I cannot post it anywhere else, so here goes.
I was the same guy who asked a question on "Re learning Perl". I even gave a small code snippet I wrote just to show how much I remember. This was pretty late in the night. I woke up half expecting someone to shoo me away at worst, or un answered post at best, because I was not sure how my question would be perceived. To my amazement and satisfaction, not a *single* sullen response!!!. The monks who responded genuinely wanted to guide. They suggested tips and books. Truly, there is no other forum like this. I've been here so many times, asked so many questions, but not even once, I repeat, not even once was I rudely sent back. I've seen much much worse forums, but there is something different here at the Monastery. Whenever someone asks me why I use Perl, I tell them 1) Because this is the only scripting language I know (and like) and 2) that they should visit PerlMonks. It's the most amazing place to come to ask questions and get genuine answers.
It's also here at PerlMonks that I learnt that it's ok if you do not remember syntax, you can look up the documentation, no one expects you to remember everything by heart. As long as you have the basic fundamentals clear, you can barge ahead, and then fill in the gaps. You monks may not believe it, but there are other places not so forgiving/understanding/helpful.
I hope the place stays as wonderful as it is right now. Thank you Monks.
