I started out on comp.lang.perl.misc and enjoyed the witty and educational responses from the likes of Uri, Abigail and merlyn. But it got spoilt by
such as Godzilla! Queen Of Perl Heretics..
So I don't go there anymore.
Then I discovered the
Perl Mailing Lists
and became something of a serial mailing list pest,
moving from fwp to golf to perl-qa and others.
I enjoyed these much more than clpm because they
felt more like a community and there was far less
chaff to weed out. And I still recommend them.
If I have a specialist perl-qa question, for example,
I typically get the best responses from the perl-qa list.
Nowadays, I spend most of my limited spare time
lurking around the monastery. I like it here because
it's so lively; you almost always get a quick
response to any question you pose. And there
are many knowledgeable Perl folks here, always
willing to help.
