in thread On Two Years of Silence...

There is a saying that has come to my mind (badly paraphrased):

You can be a big fish in a little pond, or a little fish in a big pond

( Although there are some monks that are big fish in a big pond )

By not posting I was staying in a comfort zone and not risking being corrected (whether it be politely or by being flamed). Like you say though, you learn the most when you are shown you are wrong.

Thanks for the reply and ++.

    Dude, who cares if you're flamed? Either it won't have any effect or at very worst you'll become a jaded, cynical shell of a programmer, which is highly underrated :).
