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.
