Probably ...

I was addressing the category of lazy "Perl doesn't work" one-liners , where you put a lot of effort into asking for clearer wording and detailed information, only to get more lazy reactions, if any.

I stopped investing in those, though wouldn't stop others in doing so.

I for my part don't miss them.

    There are a few ways to look at this type of thing, either ignore them in the hope the the poster will figure out on their own that more effort/data is required from them (which has issues in itself, since we don't get visible notification of a post being updated) or the 'help us to help you' approach, where they get responses to encouraging them to make more effort, and pointing them in the right direction. That said, some people are just beyond help, for various reasons.
