Mmmmmaybe. The Monks here are amazing and many are tremendously strong in things other than Perl; which makes them better monks. I certainly would not be here if it weren't for Perl. I tried and finally set aside programming as a colossal and pointless bore, age 10-15 (no judgement, just my personality). As a 30 year-old I found Perl and became a professional developer because Perl is so damn fun to work with that I don't even really mind Larry-jobs (no slight against the Great and Powerful Wall) as long as I can use Perl to do the work.

There is a personality class that is attracted to Perl... I won't delve the adjectives because it would reek of hubris. I'll just say that I don't know any monks personally but I like just about all of them (you).
