Thy careless writing, brother, doth bring pain unto mine eyes, for verily thou mixest the high and low modes of address, like unto a novice that mistaketh his sigils, as "@foo[0]" &c. Wherefore I commend unto thee that when thou wouldst chastise thy brethren so, thou shouldst say instead "How thou discreditest thyself", or "how ye discredit yourself".

I think I agree with your point, though. Autovivification is one of those features that's both a strength and a weakness of Perl. A strength, because it's a very practical feature that makes life a bit easier for you and me; a weakness, because people who suffer from a surfeit of the wrong sort of laziness use it as an example of how Perl is "too hard".
