in thread Improve Perl's marketing position by making Perlmonks more discoverable for automated "popularity contests"

Of course, i've said that even in my original post that TIOBE is flawed. The intent of the exercise is to rob unscrupulous journalists of a source to be used in decrying Perl's death, or in less nicer words: Get people to shut up, so we can deal with real issues. :)

Edit: Reading your links it seems that the people behind TIOBE even approve of such activities. :D
