I am not a snob. I try to encourage people to use Perl.
I do however feel that there are snobs, even within Perlmonks.
But I like using Perl. I don't feel that my code is a mess.

Perl hasn't become popular because of CGI, but because it is usefull. Every language has shortcomings, all areas of life have idiots and fascists and snobs. PHP is catered for web developlment. So what. Perl does all that and more. A web application server ?

There are many areas which I believe can be improved. And that takes coordination between the community. People have to work togethor on things. Im not saying that they are not, but they have to do it more so.

It's not use Perl and die; It's : use Perl or die;

There are many reasons to use Perl. When people learn it in a class, they enjoy it, and find it usefull.

One thing I have quams about is the complete over kill of available modules. But you don't have to use them. Alot of them are quite usefull.

Blah blah blah...Im off now..
