I think Perl Monks is used by some folk to have XP competitions, perhaps amongst friends, and perhaps the quality of their response is lessened by their eagerness to reply.

I don't think 'XP Whores' exist but at times XP may be important to folk. Perhaps there is a plateau where this doesn't happen anymore, perhaps it is entirely dependant on the person and their values

I think a lot of what happens is that people see a question they can answer and want to reply, more often than not, for alturistic reasons, wanting to help and not make a corroborative reply they rush in.

The end results are the same and the intention which is always hidden, sometimes even from the person posting. Even in posting we're part of a learning experience, where we can gain insight, by XP Whoring we rob ourselves of this insight by merely casting a cursory glance over 'competitors' responses.

Brother Frankus.
