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?

    [Your Mother]: Sounds right.
    [Corion]: Your Mother: I think that that is basically the origin story. Flat earth started as trolling, but then the real believers drove out the trolls
    LanX is pretty brown in summer
    [Your Mother]: Though a bad match for the OP in question here. :P
    [Corion]: Your Mother: Yeah
    [Your Mother]: Americans are still pumping out video games where you get to slaughter as many Germans as you have the GPU for... It has always struck me as odd that this particular case seems fine to people. :\
    [LanX]: yep heard the same origin story
    [Your Mother]: I like it. I tottered on going into hucksterism because I feel like the world deserves it.
    [LanX]: he ... we have a movement here called Anti-Germans based on this
    [Corion]: Your Mother: I think that's because (in the west) the Nazi-Germans are recognized as universally evil. Of course, you could do some number games to calculate other measures of evil than "historic losers of second world war" to come up with other evils:)
