in thread PERL as shibboleth and the Perl community

Conversely, if you weed me out based on esoterica, then perhaps we weren't a good match in the first place. Spelling it "PERL" does not a bad Perl programmer make.

    You're not disagreeing with me. But you are perhaps missing the point then. Try re-reading the head of this thread.

      If you re-read the post to which I replied, chromatic is implying if not saying right out that you spell it "PERL", you're at best sloppy and at worst incapable. That is the statement to which I am replying; nothing more, nothing less.

        Correct, and that again doesn't disagree with what I said, and I agree with chromatic.

        I think both he and I are distinguishing two things which you are collapsing together. Consider that what it takes to "be a good Perl programmer" (as in, understand the language from its definition) as separate from what it would mean to work for someone who demands paying attention to detail. It's about individual vs team. He and I seem to agree that spelling it PERL means you don't get to be part of our team, even though you may be a hot-shot Perl programmer.

        Does that make it clearer? That's why I challenged your statement: "PERL" is a clue that you're not a team player, even though you may be a fine "Perl programmer".
