in reply to Perl's taking over my life. . . .

my advice: please seek professional help.

Though I will admit, amongst the few Perl-capable folks I work for, usage of s/foo/bar/g in IM is pretty common shorthand. Such as when decoding manager-speak: s/fire-drill/cluster****/g or s/manage-expectations/admit-we-are-screwed/g
