( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

I've stayed well away from the ongoing flamefests elsewhere, because:

  • a) I haven't seen the bodies of any of cops posts since something like the 5th post he ever posted thanks to a small bit of CSS markup. He's the only person I have ever applied that to.
  • B) 'Response is reward' in his case, and life is too short.

    And you will doubtless dismiss this because of who I am. None the less...

    If you think that Perl::Critic constitutes "new idioms" and "the future of Perl", then I am, for the first time, truely afraid of the future.

    Because if you think that tying Perl down with bondange and discipline; stylistic monoculture; a usury of pedantic, micro-grammatical correctness; and turning Perl into a uniformly pedestrian mono-dialetic; constitutes making it "modern", then I fear you are not the Saviour of P6 as I thought you might be.

    I just hope to Hell and back that Mr. Wall is not so swayed.


    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.
