in thread How should Perlmonks deal with Plagiarism?

You've got a point, but remember that the people who post a question and get answers are not necessarily the ones who benefit most from the effort the Monks make. Countless times, I have found really interesting, useful, helpful information in answers to other peoples' questions, and I'm sure this happens a lot. In other words, just because the person asking the question may not have a clue, that doesn't mean efforts to answer the question are wasted. I believe that your efforts (and those of the other Monks) help far more people than you'll ever realize. I don't believe they're wasted. If anyone is wasting their time, it's the people who post things they copy and don't understand. I, for one, am grateful to you and the other Monks who take the time to answer questions I didn't ask - sometimes I don't even know I *should* be asking that question. Your efforts are not wasted.
