Humans have a wonderful love for "Do What I mean, Not What I say". This applies both to programming languages (Perl) and general conversations. I'm pretty sure he didn't want a role call of who knew the answer to the question, even though that's how it's phrased. Since we rely on a programming language that goes out of its way to be nice to us, perhaps we should go out of our way to be nice to other people. :)
