Oh come on. Why would someone who is "plugged in" to the community have to subscribe to every single belief? Judging someone based on how thye write the word is absurd and in reality, very few people actually really care that much.

And for the record, Larry Wall, in a 1999 Linux Magazine expressly stated that "Perl not only stands for Practical Extraction and Report Language", which is something many community regulars who argue against the usage of PERL actively ignore in order to make their points work at all.

They completely ignore that that meaning can be written as PERL, just as many people write TMTOWTDI instead of writing it out in full. And isn't the tabooifiing of "PERL" contrary to the core belief of TMTOWTDI?
