in thread RFC: Review of "Seekers of Perl Wisdom" description?

"...tolerance of the unwary beginner is what sets this place apart" Seems to me that's neither desirable nor factually true. c.f. StackOverflow...
Not sure what you mean here, that Perlmonks should not be tolerant and, in fact, is not tolerant? StackOverflow is like a fairground attraction where newbies are set up like ducks to be shot down by the local bullies.
giving them a precis or a reference has to be better than a deafening silence
Yes, but that is not the comparison I was making - silence is better than abuse.

    When "tolerance" comes to mean "anything goes" tolerance has gone too far.

    and as to "silence," that may not be the "comparison" intended, but my comment does address the inference your remark invited.

      One of the things that attracts me to PerlMonks is that anything does not go here.

      Flame wars do not go here

      Rudeness does not go here

      Insulting behavior does not go here

      Instead, this is an island of civil discourse in an ocean of juvenile behavior. Disagreements are argued, sometimes passionately, but don't (usually) descend into ad hominum attacks.
