Oversensitivity to the casing of perl is just an affectation. And like most affectations it serves only to delineate the "cool" crowd from the "uncool".

Haah ha! She wears glasses.

Haah ha! He's wearing Nike Air Total Package Lows. They are just soo last week!

Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
Lingua non convalesco, consenesco et abolesco. -- Rule 1 has a caveat! -- Who broke the cabal?

In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

      I'm not sure why people are making more out of this than I mean.

      There are basically three potential points of failure for communication: the sender, the medium, and the receiver. It's probably not that the Monastery garbled your posts, so it's either that a number of people suffer from similar reading defects, or that you miscommunicated in some way. Or a combination.
