in thread Better Days?

It seems there are less questions being asked

And do you put that down to this place has become too tolerant of badly phrased and/or easy questions?

Or because such questions are routinely greeted with a barrage of WHYT/RTFM/LMGTFY first responses?

With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

The start of some sanity?

    Different Anonymous here

    I would say its partly due to introduction of stackoverflow with its broader focus and better voting system -- its like a superstore , one stop shopping all the way :) even with its lower volume of perl questions, its still got merlyn / ikegami / Corion ... posting regularly . For some things, no matter where you go, its the same persons answering the question, esp perl, but stackoverflow has cpan authors as members that were never perlmonks

    Yes, I would say it's the bowing to etiquette before solving problems issue. There are a few here who have designated themselves the Hall Monitor and, I believe, chased a lot of people away. I think the OP's point about how members reacted to the troll last summer didn't help either.
      Thank you for understanding what I was attempting to say!

      The OP is one of the self-designated hall monitors.

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
