they are NOT rules. I even said so in the post. They are at best guidelines. And the reason for this post is so that whenever this may come up again someone can point to one place where the thoughts expressed are summed up neatly and unambiguously. One of the root causes of the problem here is that no one was sure what, if anything, had been agreed on. there had been previous discussions that had not reached any sort of conclusion at all and left some feeling one thing and other something completely contrary. I just one one place that anymonk can point to and say "Last time logging the chatterbox came up everybody decided X".
so jepri, do the above guidelines seem to sum up what everyone agreed to in the other threads thus far? if you think they do, cool. if not, what's missing? I'm trying to be constructive here...
$mostLanguages = 'Designed for engineers by engineers.';
$perl = 'Designed for people who speak by a linguist.';
