How about a modification to the front page for Anonymous Monks. At the top, have a prominent link, larger than the other ones, that says something like "Do you have a Perl question? Click Here". Then, lead them to a page with logical steps to take. Step one, check the Documentation, step two, search for previous posts, and so on. The final link would, of course, be to ask a question. Rather than the regular old post form, though, this one would have a list of considerations right above the text box.

Maybe, Anonymous Monks should always be taken to a page like this before they even get a chance to post.
