I tend to give more positive than negative votes, but I usually let my negative vote speak for itself. Giving a reason every time would just add to the clutter, and not help the overall value of the site at all. Most times, if a question is not clear or needs more information, I will msg the person or reply with a "please clarify" post. Very basic posts that show no effort on the part of the poster to solve it themselves (i.e. perldoc perlfunc) fall into this category. I am more than willing to help people out with problems that may seem simple to me, but I feel that perlmonks should not be a replacement for the perl faq or the Learning Perl book.

This is not meant as a dig on your post - by the very fact that you posted this here, and took some time and thought in doing so, indicates that you are not the type of person who I would vote down without an explanation. I save that for the Anonymous Monks that say: "What does the $_ mean that I keep seeing everywhere?" :)
