in reply to RFC: How Tightly Coupled To Perl Must We Be?
I think the unwritten rule here is, we are not militant about moderating OT posts, but have a low tolerance for them. There are tons of posix sys admins and programers who know other languages here willing to help, even if its OT. So each OT OP will get 2/3rds "take him to the firing line", and 1/3rd helpful responses, leaving the OP totally confused as to whether he can be back or not with OT questions. If they are marked OT in their title on PM there isn't the usually torrent of OT attacks. See also Sites like PerlMonks
