  • Advogato has further discussion [advogato.org], including rabid, foaming-at-the-mouth responses by yours truly.

    • chromatic,
      I am not able to reply to the discussion on Advogato, I was wondering if you could send this reply to the author.

      I have been using Perl for just over a year. I was a newbie not to long ago, and I am by no means a guru. I never felt that the resources at hand were lacking. If I could not locate or understand the answer to my problem in the Perl documentation or a book I asked my question in a Perl community.
      To say the Perl Community is deceptively simple, more accurately there is a network of Perl communities. Each community comprised of like skilled and or interest. I don't think that any newbie question should need to be answered by a guru. Most questions can be answered by a person of similar skill level to person asking the question.
      It is never a communities responsibility to facilitate an individual who has an extreme deficiency in ability to self educate.
      What works well for one person may not for the next. This is why there are may Perl communities, don't trash what works for other because it doesn't for you.

      Thats my quick $0.02.
