O.K., folks, it's time to vent some venom, blow off some steam, push the red button on a big dose of catharsis, whatever. You know you want to. You know you need to. So let's have it.

The subject of this round is

There's a level of Hell reserved for ___________.

Perl-related venting only, please. Or at least keep it technical. Go Anonymous if you must, but please no picking on fellow monks.

  • There's a level of Hell reserved for people who write "as_string" methods that have significant side-effects.
  • There's a level of Hell reserved for people who write great, massive blocks of comments that have, at best, a fictional relationship to the code that follows.
  • There's a level of Hell reserved for people who sneak in "fixes" at the very, very last possible moment, breaking a release in the process.
  • There's a level of Hell reserved for Product Managers who decide to change the name of the product after you're in code freeze.
  • There's a very special level of Hell reserved for Sales droids who sell customers stuff that you don't make, and then forget to tell you until the customer is on-site for a training class.
  • There's a special row of seats in Purgatory for people who write "PERL".
