While it is in 2nd place, it's amazing how laziness outranks logic almost 3:1 -- (more general population would probably choose lazy over logical 10:1 I'd bet...)

Maybe its because you only diddle dabble in perl whereas we write boatloads?

:) The "logic" boat sank long ago, see Re^2: What operator should perl5porters use for safe dereferencing?, Re^6: What operator should perl5porters use for safe dereferencing?

    It more likely has something to do with my background in compilers and having a degree in Computer Science.

    I'm much more likely to give an answer based on sound principles than on what's popular. Needless to say, that doesn't go over too well on a 'social' or popularity based websites...
