Nice post. Thank you for taking the time to write it.

When this particluar discussion started, I must admit that I found it a bit ridiculous. Lists in scalar context?? What?? That just didn't make sense to me at an intuitive level. But, after following the posts here, I now have a greater insight into the way some other people have structured their programming paradigms and I expect that this insight will prove helpful to me when communicating with other programmers.

This is the sort of discussion that sets PerlMonks apart from other programming sites and I applaud those who have taken part and cogently explained their views.
