I've stayed well away from the ongoing flamefests elsewhere, because:
And you will doubtless dismiss this because of who I am. None the less...
If you think that Perl::Critic constitutes "new idioms" and "the future of Perl", then I am, for the first time, truely afraid of the future.
Because if you think that tying Perl down with bondange and discipline; stylistic monoculture; a usury of pedantic, micro-grammatical correctness; and turning Perl into a uniformly pedestrian mono-dialetic; constitutes making it "modern", then I fear you are not the Saviour of P6 as I thought you might be.
I just hope to Hell and back that Mr. Wall is not so swayed.
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
