... as mindless, boring and and a bit more useful than "use strict" ..
Not to be picky or anything, but the advice to "use strict" is not mindless, nor is it not useful, so you've got two obvious strikes out of three (and an umpire call on the third).

The point the OP was making should be obvious: there are indeed areas where a consensus exists on what's the best practice, and he wants to hear about others.

I do have rules I follow ... and they are: do not do anything without knowing what's going on
So you mean you never do anything?

    In the grand scheme of things, "using strict" is mindless, boring, and compared to other things, utterly unimportant. It's on the list of "useful things to do", around place 3000, along with eating enough fruit and vegetables. "use strict" isn't the magic bullet some people think it is. Slapping "use strict" on a program doesn't make it better.
    The point the OP was making should be obvious: there are indeed areas where a consensus exists on what's the best practice, and he wants to hear about others.
    Whether or not there's consensus, the point is, the OP remained too vague on his circumstances to even determine what area he's talking about.
    So you mean you never do anything?
    No, it means I'm informed.
      use strict would be the "wear pants to church" of perl, if there were a significant problem of people going to church without pants. But there is a significant problem of people who don't use strict.
