BUT where else do you see a community like PM?
Oh, please. Thank god, nowhere else. To tell you a secret,
a lot of Perl people absolutely hate PM because of this
so-called "PM community". They are seen as pompous pricks
(and that's one of the less insulting terms I've heard),
who aren't much better than the slashdot crowd. And each
time I see posts like this, gloating about the nirvana of
"the perlmonk community", I've to agree with them.
I post here. But I'm not part of a "PM community". I don't
like being called a Perlmonk. I only post here because I
like to talk about Perl. But I don't consider PM to be anything else than Usenet with the poorest and slowest interface I've ever seen.
How long will it take before this is in the worst nodes of the week?
