in thread Musings on the Basics....

I would like to note that I was not attempting to judge anyone. If someone is in need of a quickfix and google is their path, it is not within my realm of experience to tell them to do otherwise. I, myself, have been in need of a hack or quick fix myself many times.

The original post was simply meant to be something I noticed. Perhaps each post that inspired my view that people don't learn the basics was actually posted by someone who knows all of the basics and simply forgot them, or misplaced his reference sheet, or something. I will be the first to say that my own interpretation of things is/was/will be skewed and filtered in a manner that is pertinent to my own experiences.

I suppose I was not looking to single anyone out or judge them or say that developing workarounds is a 'bad' practice. I was just interested in hearing if others interpreted things the way I did, and if others also notice the common practice of 'time before beauty.'

As was so astutely pointed out earlier, </shrug>

    Ah - OK. I have to admit that I rarely read SOPW here - the questions are rarely interesting.
