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.
