There was no put down.

Your understanding of perl data structures clearly -is- superficial, since your
posts up-thread indicate you don't understand the difference between an array,
an array reference, and an object.

I'd tell a C programmer who didn't know the difference between a value, a
pointer and a struct that their understanding of those data structures was
superficial too.

This was not a criticism of you. It was a pointer to where your knowledge
was lacking, complete with which documents to read to fix it.

I'm sorry you felt the need to get offended and be nasty to Aristotle as
payback for trying to help you; I'd suggest you do your best not to do that
to anybody else, since most of us will simply stop helping you if you behave
like that to us.
