Long time PHP fan.

It makes me pain to see extremely unprofessional community and - as a consequence - extremely low answers quality under PHP tag.

When answer, I am trying to distinguish three matters:

  1. What the OP asked
  2. What the OP wanted
  3. What the OP needed really

and answer latter one, not first two.

I am always trying to see couple moves ahead, grasping whole picture, not literal question only.

Thanks, that's good hint. But what about "happy and satisfied" part? I thought this buttermilk idiom is about such a mood - no?

comment “Yor first bookshelf” for a non-native speaker
@JLG oh thank you so much too. These modernlibrary lists are so exciting, I just can't choose between Joyce's brick of paper and pseudo-philosophical bullshit from Rand and Hubbard. I am curious if you bothered to read any of these yourself.

@FumbleFingers I wish I could. these guys from meta refuse to speak to anyone who isn't courteous enough.

@FumbleFingers I see no reason in deleting any answers for whatever reason. It's always a food for thoughts.

comment A polite substitution for “lamer”
@Fumble there is some nuance. Being ignorant in the area one never attend to, is not a shame - it's perfectly normal, we all are. But being intentionally ignorant where one is trying to participate, trying to teach others, while being not modest bot arrogant, is a shame. I feel that lamer more refers to that latter one, not just a newbie/one who don't care.

That's closest one (at least to my not-so-good feel for English)

Frankly, I don't want to be nice. More likely I forced to it %) However, lamer is not equal to neophyte. It's more likely an "arrogant neophyte".
