in reply to Humour an important mechanism for language learning

To appreciate this post in context please take a look through some of Win's previous posts.

It never ceases to amaze me that you put effort into posts like this, yet your posts asking for technical advice show no such effort. From time to time, usually after you have spent a few days creating threads which ask for people to do your job for you (not always perl related), these posts being poorly worded, and in general showing little or (most of the time) no effort on your behalf, you post something like this thread (or for a previous example this one) in some sort of attempt to ingratiate yourself with people here, or is it an attempt to regain lost XP.

You frequently ignore replies to your lazy questions. Most of the time you want someone to provide you with a fully working solution to something which you have spent no time researching. You fail to read the documentation (see this node, though there are dozens and dozens of instances of such behavior in your back catalog); you come here asking people for information which a search engine would easily find you, except that you can't seem to be bothered to use one; you don't seem to learn from your previous mistakes, or answers you have been given (see Removing duplicates from an array and printing out tabs between each element in an array, two recent examples though I am sure there are many more). Suggestions that you should use super search, read the tutorials, read any form of documentation, or learn the basics of the tools you need to use (perl, SQL Server and so on) get ignored.

Many of us have witnessed your conduct in the CB, ranging from senseless personal attacks to racist/homophobic rants.

It certainly seems that you not want to learn perl (your actions alone prove this). With this in mind, what do you find funny about perl, other than that you can come here and get people to do your job for you?

    Well your response is certainly not funny at all...
