in reply to Political alignment of the Perl community [OT]

I think this discussion is detrimental to the well-being and brotherhood of the monks. Perl is a tool, it will answer whoever wields it no matter their political orientation.

    I suppose you are correct. This post was actually inspired by the boycott O'Reilly thread, and Wassercrats opinions on books containing information on how to hack and lockpicking. Seeing as so many people were against his opinions (I'm not commenting period), I was curious to see if Wassercrats is more right wing authoritarian than the rest of the community, and this is where some of the friction comes from. I am sorry for any unrest this post has caused.

      Asking about political orientation usually leads to flame wars and angry users. You can see this sort of thing on http://use.perl.org if you are interested. That will also confirm for you that not everyone who uses Perl has the same political orientation.
        Thank you.

        Perl is a tool, it will answer whoever wields it no matter their political orientation.

    And a dog will love its master no matter what others may think of him and no matter his politics.

    Hmmm... Politics. What a wonderful way to describe the process...
