Perlmonks on giving ready solutions

| Comments | No TrackBacks

I read Perlmonks irregularly, sometimes I even post something. I give hints, thoughts or bigger chunks of code. But for the first time I got as much as 40% of downvotes on an entry that I think is rather neutral.

I understand that some people don’t like to give others ready solutions, they prefer “to teach others to fish than to give them a fish”. But is it really something that bothers them so much to give thumbs down to the ones who don’t mind? No feelings hurt, I’m just curious…
