Thanks for this gentle and insightful response. Posts like this are one of the things that set PerlMonks apart as a site where people (even lazy people) are patiently taught to fish rather than being given a quick meal. Not that responses like Where's my pony? aren't funny, but I suspect some readers don't understand the humor and chalk them up as monks being spitefully mean.

As someone who has occasionally been unsure about whether a question had 'enough Perl' in it to justify a SoPW post, I appreciate your analysis.

    I'm actually surprised. Aside from the complete lack of context, any explanation of what's expected, any error messages, or useful direction besides the Neanderthalic "Ugh code no work" I could see where this might actually be the first recent posting have a vague marginal amount of Perl relevance out of the gate which wasn't stealth edited in after people have already downvoted it into the bowels of Worst Nodes.

    Granted he's still a bozo who won't bother to learn from How (Not) To Ask A Question no matter how many people point him at it.

    And I still want my pony.

      "Ugh code no work"

      That is hilarious.
