The question is not whether you can write clean maintainable code without strict or warnings, but whether or not you need to write code without them? I'd say for the majority of people the answer is no (the rest being the cranks and crackpots)

    The question at hand was whether or not strict and warnings were needed. The original bullet point stated another way is "there is no way to write good Perl without using strict and warnings". Since you conceded that it is possible to write good and maintanable Perl without using strict and warnings, the original statement is false. QED.

      The question at hand was whether or not strict and warnings were needed. The original bullet point stated another way is "there is no way to write good Perl without using strict and warnings".

      The question is whether or not you are arguing that you don't need strict and warnings. If you are writing alot of code where strict just gets in the way (like if you are TheDamian), then you don't need to argue the non-necessity of strict.
