I think your title is too melodramatic, and overgeneralizing. You make good points, and I agree with most of what you say, but - IMHO - you overstate the validity of the claims made in those threads. Just look at the arguments made by chromatic and Ovid. Their points are convincing enough in their own right, but if you realise where they work, you can see how that gives them an excellent view on the overall state of Perl. From where I stand, that makes them far more authorative than some random anonymonk.

<rant> I have the sneaking suspicion that the handful of FUD-spreading anonymonks are just a bunch of whiny saps who landed lousy jobs, where they resent the technology desicions being made higher-up, and think their peers are all monkey coders. Their complaints aren't with Perl itself, but stem from their unhappiness with their personal situation. </rant> -- Yes, it's a hot day ;^)
