Hi pemungkah

Thanks for your support.

It is meant to be a means of responding to the Bloggers and Twitters responding to pressure to censor themselves -- by censoring themselves and pretending that they aren't.

Well, I didn't mean that, but it's very true. I see people I know blogging every day, but only opinions they already know are popular. Where are the new and controversial ideas? As the British playwright George Bernard Shaw observed, “Reasonable people adapt themselves to the world. Unreasonable people attempt to adapt the world to themselves. All progress, therefore, depends on unreasonable people.”

As a very far-sighted man, he probably meant us here on PerlMonks.

And, as he should have added, Perl.

Regards.
