in reply to Perl Golf Ethics

Seems to me that both "Perl Golf" and the other form of "Golf" (where one hits a ball with a stick ... and the ball's not even moving ... how easy is that !!) are, indeed, governed by the same ethical consideration - namely:

If the rules do not prohibit it, then it's ethical.

That is surely "ethics" at it's most fundamental.

    Heh. Exactly the opposite of firewall ruleset logic, where anything not expressly permitted is verboten by default.

    Sanity? Oh, yeah, I've got all kinds of sanity. In fact, I've developed whole new kinds of sanity. You can just call me "Mister Sanity". Why, I've got so much sanity it's driving me crazy.
