in reply to On Commenting Out 'use strict;'

Not to justify the "Child"'s POV but I do understand the feeling. Back when I was first learning C (w/ my $10 mail order compiler & my brother in law's 8086 PC) I remember my first compile of a "Hello World" program. The error messages scrolled for 2 minutes straight.

However unlike the "Child" I didn't ignore them or turn them off, but I kept at it until they were all gone. You can't have the mentality that it should all be so easy that you don't have to think. I think all the GUI point and click stuff has caused everyone to think that programming is easy. Its certainly easier with Perl, but you turn your brain off at your own peril.
