in thread The Perl Hacker Inferiority Complex

The internet wasn't built on perl. The biggest problem I have with perl is this idea that no other language should exist. In this thread alone, how many people have indicated that "after Perl 6 comes out and we get some GUI environments for it, etc. then no one will want to use any other languages". You don't see this in any of the other comunities, why is it seemingly the dominant voice in Perl land? It was this attitude expressed daily from a college for over 5 years that has driven me away from Perl forever.

    Personally, I wouldn't know what is said in other communities, because I find everything I need with Perl and PM. If you've been "driven ... away from Perl forever", what are you doing here? Apparently you still have some feelings for the language or its users - some attraction.

    I am often puzzled by how many people come here to explain how Perl isn't worth anything, it's a useless, stupid language, blah, blah, blah - and yet, they return here daily to tell us all about it. Don't you have any programs to write?

      I was doing a search for some implimentation options for one of the several better designed languages I currently use and a saw a rediculous statement. When I saw it I imediately thought "that sounds like one of those perl nazi's". I followed the link and it brought me here.
