I've always felt this way. I learned more from mst and ribasushi than almost anywhere else after I did something stupid and they facepalmed and called me a moron, and then showed me the correct way.
That being said, I wasn't a green Perl programmer at this point. The irc community has improved tremendously in the past few years in terms of people new to a framework or the language. Only when someone is being completely noncompliant and not following suggestions do they get berated, but more than likely they just get dismissed anymore.
Three thousand years of beautiful tradition, from Moses to Sandy Koufax, you're god damn right I'm living in the fucking past
