However, having the #1 perl site look like something from 1995 only helps give credence to the "perl is dead" talk that's been going around

Which, again, only makes perl look bad.

Let's make 2011 the year of perl.

How Perl is viewed does not depend on your opinion how far the web was in 1995 (Netscape 1.0 was released on 1995, same year Microsoft released IE), nor on how Perlmonks is perceived. I'd be surprised if even 5% of the Perl programmers out there have even heard of Perlmonks, let alone visited it (nor does the vast majority of the Perl programmers have any interest in "the community").

I doubt there's a significant number of people who decide to stop programming Perl because they thought this site looks like something from 1995.

Now, I just found this flashing site mentioning COBOL. I'll be burning my Perl books later tonight, and be switching to this exciting new language!
