Will Braswell's post in Perl Programmers group on Facebook says it very well:
- It's "Perl", not "PERL". (backronym != acronym)
- Ask for help at StackOverflow.com or PerlMonks.org or
- Read the flippin' manual before asking for help.
- Don't delete useful advice, it may help others. Please paste your complete code into a github gist or pastebin.
- Don't be rude.
- Say "please".
- Say "thank you".
