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.

Feel the white light, the light within
Be your own disciple, fan the sparks of will
