in thread Perl myths ?

Don't be malicious seems the simplest answer :-)

Ahh :) the simple answer.

I guess it comes down to looking at the emotional response vs. the rational one. It's hard for people to do so before responding to criticism or making criticism. I think it's a failing that most people have.

was mentioned either on this thread or on one about perl stereotypes (i can't remember :P ) ... it's that kind of technical clarity that makes the discussion easier/more palatable.

Also remember that language choice isn't just one of "technical" merit. There are many, in a narrow sense of the word, non-technical issues in picking a language.

I agree heartily. If you don't like it, you won't learn it well and won't perform well. Same goes for availability and support.

I think that about covers it.
