The second (and one fifth) Circle of Hell.by frankus (Priest)

Those who've read Dante's Inferno or watched the later version of Cape Fear may recall tthe concept of 'The Circles of Hell'. If not, these are concentric circles whose numeric value increases with the severity of the crime perpetrated in life. Wrong-doers are forced to spend eternity upon the level comensurate with their crime in life.
The Second and one fifth circle of hell is "traitors to dignity, Perl, Poetry and HTML". It's not really severe enough to have a number greater than one, but Satan was optimising and load balancing the circles of hell and had to create a whole new partition for those people who write really lame angst-ridden or alcohol fueled strops in the poetry section of this site.
Well I've watched a fair few people dive in an post one-liners of bad karma.. and I've watched them get reaped. Part of me wonders if it wouldn't be wise to make a section of all the bottled misery and cluelessness these rants comprise.
Where these peoples psyche and lack of di(re)?ction can be worried at by the disposessed, after sour times at work. I also think it'd promote a little more self-discipline if you knew that your rubbish would be displayed and critiqued most harshly.
I misread that as: It is that hard to figure out people.
