Re: The Rules of Perl Clubby BazB (Priest)

I started writing this comment by saying that I'm not sure how much I agree with this one, however as I go rambling on I do see the point.
As everyone can see from my home node I'm a Perl newbie.
I'd like to think that's the difference between a good Monk and a bad one - the wish to one day stand as a saint amoungst mortals, and be able to pass down the knowledge to those that one day hope to be able to do the same thing.
The reference to Fight Club is a good one however - word of mouth, hearing things through the grapevine is probably the best way of establishing a strong, like minded community.
I think the probably the most important thing regarding the Perl communities I've seen is that not only is the average Perl hacker smart, they're/we're a friendly lot - long may it continue.
Just my 2p.
