in reply to 20 most important Perl Best Practices

since I was busy at YAPC::EU when this was written and afterwards an offtopic part of this thread got my attention first, I just wanted to add what I usually say when talking about Perl Best Practices:
The goal of PBP is not to be a list of rules. Then it could have been much shorter. Its goal is making you think about how you program and try to be consistent. The "rules" can vary from person to person or from company to company, although I agree that I often wish more people would use the suggested practices in the book, especially the ones I use ;-)

    Oh absolutely!

    With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
    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.

    RIP Neil Armstrong
