Oh, please. Thank god, nowhere else.
Too bad, there shall be many more.
To tell you a secret, a lot of Perl people absolutely hate PM because of this so-called "PM community"
And a lot of people who read perlmonks absolutely despise these "Perl people" because of their blatant pretentiousness and elistism. Not to mention a great deal of them hardly know anything about Perl or programming for that matter. They often don't frequent discussions because their afraid to show their ignorance.
At least the majority of people that frequent perlmonks are trying to extend their knowledge. I'm tired of these usenet relics coming along and dumping on everything that tries to be something more. Usenet is an obsolete cesspool. Insulting people for trying to create something better doesn't speak well of you.
To extend Randal's metaphor, your actions are like walking into a movie theatre, constantly bitching about how much movies suck and how 1950's TV was so much better, then saying "I only come here because I like the moving pictures."
