There's a level in Hell reserved for:
  • Programmers who don't see the importance of untainting data
  • Programmers who immediately hit up Perlmonks or clpm asking a basic question when perldoc whatever would suffice
  • Clients who harp on deadlines, yet do not return calls or get information back to the programmers in time for them to meet the deadlines.
  • People who say, "You program in Perl? I've tried to pick that up, but it looks like gibberish."
  • People who don't appreciate good gibberish when they see it. :)
  • Ex-programmer bosses who say, "Hey, I could have had this fully-working CGI application working in three days, why is it taking you a week?" I mean, who cares if his programming came in the form of 24-hour code marathons and mine was limited to 8-10 hour days.
  • People who seriously get heated about their choice of text editor. I mean, come on! We all know vi is the way to go, so stop your whining.
  • Perl code that uses C-style for loops instead of foreach, etc.
  • People who can't smile at the subtle beauty in calling a reference to a array containing references to hashes. Perl's native data structures are a beautiful thing.

[Sinistral]: I think that just the sight of his username now causes a downvote storm. I agree, and the gratuitous use of formatting does make reading hard. I've given him +1 on things where there seemed to be actual good advice, but I think the big
[Sinistral]: nail in coffin was the rant against a Schwarzian Transform
[stonecolddevin]: at best, from what i've seen, his knowledge is accurate up to maybe 2002. the sheer volume of words is mostly worthy of a downvote in most cases though i think
[erix]: ITYM Schwartzian Transform :P
[erix]: hey planetscape :)
[planetscape]: howdy stonecolddevin, erix
[Sinistral]: eric Aye. I thought I typed that wrong. All hail Randall! I listen to him on FLOSS Weekly
[Discipulus]: i think his vacuus, trombon like, absence of meaning, joined with a ostentatious style, after many years irritates the most
[erix]: easy to get wrong -- I guess that was sund's point, too :P
