in reply to Beware - improper context usage can be considered criminal activity!

What I'd like to hear from various monks (and your stories need not involve criminal charges, actual or threatened) are stories about how failing to understand subtleties like list/scalar context differences caused you trouble. Feel free to change names, attribute them to cow orkers, etc. I just wanna hear the stories, not embarass or belittle anybody!

I don't have any stories like this, my biggest errors are stupid things like nearly crashing a Sun Enterprise class system by failing to delete my large files in /tmp =)
