in thread PERL as shibboleth and the Perl community

"Love" would be too strong a word, but I certainly respect merlyn. I think he was just trying to be understood, not looking for universal approval. Disagreement isn't lack of respect; nor does it always mean someone has misunderstood. It's just part of the give and take here at the Monastery, one of the features that makes it so helpful. There's room here for everyone, even if we disagree with them sometimes.

    Correct. In fact, I expect disagreement on some of the points. But in the previous thread, I recieved confusing (to me) responses to my posts, and realized that I was being misunderstood. So I took the time to step back and clarify my own reasoning before making any more attempts to communicate my specific points.

    It was an interesting exercise, because I first just started listing about a dozen "I believe ..." statements in an outlining tool, and then I started to see a hierarchy of beliefs, and rearranged the points in a proper nesting. Once I had the nesting, I knew how to explain it better, and that resulted in the post at the head of this thread.

    Are they all valid beliefs? Hard to say. Like every belief, I will find a world that correlates with that belief, opening some doors and closing others. Do I like the world I live in? If so, keep the beliefs, and if not, discard them. I'm very pragmatic that way. {grin}
