Monasteries are not know for being touchie feelie institutions. They are known for being harsh places where people go to learn through honesty, discipline and hard work.

PM, much like the language on which it is based, is a meritocracy. I, for one, am most grateful to have one of the people who "wrote the book" posting here on a regular basis, especially with what some may consider his more entertaining comments.

I've only dared to post code here a few times and on both occasions I was bummed that I didn't get a stern warning about some failing from our beloved Wizard. That didn't stop me from imagining what he might say: This is cargo cult coding at its worst. Why are you trying to reinvent the wheel? Use Parse::RecDescent. *sigh* Maybe someday.
