What I see here, that is often missing from other 'community' sites is that the people here care... *passionately* care... about Perl.

They're not running this site because they seek to have their name associated with 'being in charge'... They aren't doing this for recognition...

They don't 'like' Perl... they aren't 'fans of' Perl... It goes beyond that... They are passionate about Perl, and knowledgeable, and they want to see it grow.

That's the difference in players and coaches, players enjoy the game, coaches have a passion to share it.

And it's the difference in PM and the thousands of other forums... There's a lot of people that enjoy their hobbies... but most of them just want to prove they're "the number one fan", so they start 'forums' with their name on them. They are 'players'.

PM is a community of coaches.

At least, that's how I see it.
