in thread Improve Perl's marketing position by making Perlmonks more discoverable for automated "popularity contests"

Of course, i've said that even in my original post that TIOBE is flawed. The intent of the exercise is to rob unscrupulous journalists of a source to be used in decrying Perl's death, or in less nicer words: Get people to shut up, so we can deal with real issues. :)

Edit: Reading your links it seems that the people behind TIOBE even approve of such activities. :D

[Corion]: oiskuu: Depends on what you want to do with that information
[tye]: I'm not depending on that feature. But I could in this environment. I'm using getlogin(). shrug
[Corion]: For benign logging (which user started this DB instance), it's OK
[tye]: We use auditd for security monitoring. So we can rely on auditing being enabled. I'm not sure who would want to not be able to audit. Maybe some VM inside another system with audit?
[SuicideJunkie]: spies would want a system to not be able to audit.
