Hmmm.

Each time the OP appears, (has to be asked), and the response is so low-key and dismissive, la petite mort goes a little deeper; spreads a little further; lasts a little longer.
I think I agree with you. However, this makes me glad because I don't think the responses are dismissive or low-key.

Also, I remember a time when it was oft asked if C++ would replace C and clearly both of those languages today enjoy vibrant lives and even a mild form of cultural symbiosis. I expect that 10 or 15 years from now it will be similar for Perl 5 and Perl 6.

    I don't think the responses are dismissive or low-key.

    In my defense, I think that the overall response has strengthened considerably since my first post.


    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.
