You're misinterpreting my comment. Most sysadmins that I've worked with know a little perl and tend to write quick scripts to get things done, e.g. find all files like this and change this word in them. These are one-offs, and it's no crime that they aren't that pretty. The trouble is, sometimes these get handed to someone for revisions and maintenance, and the person they get handed to doesn't know much about perl and doesn't realize that perl can be beautiful when necessary. This can lead to misconceptions.

So, I mention sysadmins because the nature of the job as I've seen it (overworked, trying to fix an emergency, not usually a full-time coder) tends to breed some ugly perl. It wasn't meant to be a slur, and I'm sorry if it sounded like one. I could say the same thing about people learning perl by looking at Matt's Script Archive or some other bad CGI stuff, except that Matt really has no excuse for his code.
