Are there any greenfield websites, in the Alexa Top 500, created after 2003, that use Perl?

Quite frankly I neither know nor care.

I don't use Perl for web work, so the flavour-du-jour of that (small) part of the programming landscape is of little interest and zero concern.

Perl 5 has so many forks, PHP, Ruby, Kurila. That is not good.

That statement makes no sense at all.

What do you suggest should be done? Maybe we should implore the Doctor to nip back a decade and erase the forkers before they can do their dirty work. He seems to be pretty easy to contact these days,

I will never, ever understand why programmers spend so much time worrying themselves about what other programmers prefer. Neither blind obsession with a particular language; nor the current perception of what is fashionable; should ever dictate what language you use for any given project.

If your tools do the job you need them to do, use them. If not, investigate alternatives. But choose your tools on the basis of some real criteria -- it effectiveness for the project; the requirements of the employer; it has the prettiest logo -- anything but some half-baked perception of a vox-pop.

With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
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.

The start of some sanity?
