in thread Want a million dollars?

He demonstrated that he did not understand compile versus run-time, nor did he understand how use works. Nor did he immediately reach for the documentation when he had a problem. This was after he had been on this site for over 2 years.
wow. better have a closer look. kwaping *registered* at april 2003, yes. but that doesn't mean he has been using the site during 2003 and 2004. (same with me, i registered february 2003 but started really using the site in 2004, actually).

i realize very often how much perl i can learn in a short time, and there's still a lot to learn. to bug kwaping because of his post one year ago and to assume he hasn't learned since then isn't fair. sure, programmers can overestimate themselves, and that's not good (saw this myself when i was advising someone at their probation day). but in kwaping's post i did not see a sign he's doing that.

    Very good point. I just looked at his nodes, sorted by oldest first, and found that his first post was Re: Finding the name of the target of a coderef in April, 2005. Assuming that he has been active since he registered was obviously a bad assumption on my part.
