May I offer a friendly suggestion here? When Perlmonks gather to discuss Perl features, let’s strictly confine the discussion to ... Perl features, not “fellow monks.”
Perl is: a tool. Nothing more or less. Our entire interest in it, is that it helps in some way to keep bread on our table. There has been entirely too much name-calling here lately, too many insulting jabs and responses thereunto. None of that has any rightful place in a monastery. If you want to beat up on anyone for any reason, please take it outside to the parking lot. If you have a beef against anyone personally, for any reason i.e. not related to Perl, please take it nowhere at all ... keep it to yourself. It’s off the subject. If you want to meditate on what might make Perl a better tool, please step forward to the microphone.
