/o considered harmful

I mentioned in chatter that /o is something to avoid these days, which lead the conversation to /go, then /gosex, the proposal for /z to allow /sexgizmo, and much else that I don't clearly recall.

Unfortunately, it eventually lead to me writing this:

sub ing{ grep s o\..*o\nos,$@ } sub sex { "no sex" } s/s/sex/gimmesex, die ing for sex

...which just goes to show how harmful /o can be...

Note: Requires Perl v5.6 or later.

    Don't you find it a little more evocative like this:

    sub ing{ grep s o\..*o\nos,$@ } sub sex { "no sex" } s/s/sex/gimmesex, die ing for sex
