in thread Breaking Out of the Perl Echo Chamber: A Call to Action

Then I reread the 10 wishy-washy, naïve, 100%-opinion answers that were already there and I said to myself, Ah, f*** this.

Which is precisely the point!

There’s a bunch of us over there now, though, and I’ve found most questions are already quite decently answered by the time I see them. Then I just cast votes where I think the answers should be rearranged. I don’t know if my call to action (which I first posted to use.perl) was at all responsible for this, but that turn of events is what I was hoping for – that it not turn into yet another place where no one is going to be able to see the pearls in the mud, like practically everywhere.

Makeshifts last the longest.
