How about "Perl Brothel"?

With apologies to sgt, one could still learn Perl in a 'Disciplined' way. Of course, mens sana in corpore sano would go right out the window.

Oh, there would be problems. For instance, helping newbies could actually COST you XP. Come to think of it, helping multiple newbies at one time could cost you a LOT of XP. Also, Golf would probably have to be renamed. And I'm not sure I want to consider what some of the ramifications would be for 'Obfuscation'.

Anyway, it was just a thought.

    Very very funny, and I would have certainly included it in the list, had I thought of it - or had anyone suggested it. Indeed as a funny option it is certainly worth a vote, but more seriously a brothel is associated, and for good reasons, with a very bad reputation: so I'm sure that $Larry would not approve. He chose the name Perl in the first place because it should have been "Pearl" - something polished and clean and beautiful: he claims that the name could never have hinted to something aggressive or dirty or violent.
