in reply to Political alignment of the Perl community [OT]

Why do you make the assumption that we are mostly flaming liberals? Because we use a language were there is more than one way to do it? Because perl doesn't always follow CS conventions? I am just curious if this assumption is somehow based on the nature of perl itself or if has some other basis? As for myself I am not a flaming liberal, according to the test I am:
Economic Left/Right: -3.25
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: 1.03
