in reply to Deflation and "Selected Best Nodes"

I don't know if I'm the only one noticing but it's pretty difficult to find nodes written after 2006!
As I'm looking at it now the last node N° 50 is "DNA is Life" with 99 upvotes, which pretty much explains the phenomenon.
It's the deflation (the opposite of inflation) of votes in the last years. IAW votes were "cheaper" back then.
The best node of 2013 apparently was " : get your perlmonks flair!" with 87 votes.

We'll all muse about flairs when we grow old, and get to younger nodes once we upvoted all the brilliant nodes of those giants on whose shoulders we stood a full working lifetime. Pretty soon it will be difficult to find Best Nodes Of All Times written after 2021!

    I can't recall even a single node written after 2021 that was worth upvoting at all.

      2021 was actually a banner year for all the 8 perls. You don't remember because you developed a pretty serious case of Alzheimer's in 2019.

      Can I have a ride in your time machine?

      And is Perl6 done?

        It will be by next Christmas.

    true, nothing better than several Perl OO discussions from 2002... :-}

      I put it back for now since I don’t have a canonical external source for it that wouldn’t spoil my surprise.

[erix]: aah, yes haukex++
[hippo]: Re: DBD::Sqlite queries slow - and gives wrong results has 6 upvotes. Is everyone quite well?
[erix]: hippo I think the 26 downvotes sick
[erix]: eh, 29 downvotes
[erix]: but I guess there's no stopping the herd
[1nickt]: Thank you haukex and hippo. I'm thinking of using IPC::System:: Simple::capture instead. But will go reread Hauke's treatise first :-)
