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.
Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
