I just want to say thank you to everyone here for all your help. I remember 15 years ago when I was doing my first install of Slackware Linux, I'd ask questions in IRC channels and be met with replies like, "Stupid question.", "RTFM", and so on. I guess my early Linux experience has always made me a bit apprehensive about asking questions. However, this community truly makes a person feel like there is no such thing as a stupid question. You've always been willing to help, and I've never been met with any snide or rude replies. This community is the #1 reason I love Perl, honestly. It's the reason I stick with it. I'm still learning, and still making a lot of mistakes, even after all these years; but I know that if I am ever stuck, or having a difficult time figuring something out on my own, someone here will kindly help me understand. For that, I truly appreciate all of you, and all of your help.

Thank you Monks for making the Perl community so awesome. And thank you all for helping me along my way as I have learned.

    I'll second those sentiments. I've only been on for a couple of weeks, but have had the same positive experiences in that short time.

    If this keeps up, I may even write another Poem :)

    I am sure that, if you hang here long enough, you will in due time hear both.   But, no seriously, this is by-and-large a very helpful and civilized community that is quick to help and generally slow to RTFM if presented with a question that can be answered.   Good to know that we’re collectively doing the right thing for you ... and we look forward to your participation in answering questions, soon.   Welcome Aboard.
