Your post makes me give another downvote to Perl::Critic. Enforcing a personal comment style and claiming it to be Best Practice? That's hubris at it's worst, and plain silly. Blech...

Since all Perl::Critic policies can be switched on/off and have various different levels - and can be ignored on a case by case basis... I fail to see the "enforce"...

    Well, there's no enforcement whatsoever in Perl::Critic, since not using it isn't illegal.

    But changing "Enforcing a personal comment style" to "Making a personal comment style a policy" doesn't make things better, really.

    --shmem

    _($_=" "x(1<<5)."?\n".q·/)Oo.  G°\        /
                                  /\_¯/(q    /
    ----------------------------  \__(m.====·.(_("always off the crowd"))."·
    ");sub _{s./.($e="'Itrs `mnsgdq Gdbj O`qkdq")=~y/"-y/#-z/;$e.e && print}
      But changing "Enforcing a personal comment style" to "Making a personal comment style a policy" doesn't make things better, really.

      It's optional. If you don't like it - switch it off.
