in thread A "Perl-7" that I could actually USE right now

I'm breaking my promise to stay out of P6 threads by posting this, and I do not do so without some heavy thought, but I think this is important enough to justify it. In my other reply to the above post I said:

And it is false advertising and marketing of that very ilk that has in the past -- and continues at an accelerating rate -- to damage brands far more deeply and permanently than actual lack of functionality or technical failures.

Today I encountered something by a third party that makes this case far better than I ever could: Negative opinions (and even just negative perceptions) persist consciously & subconsciously for a very long time.

Now I'll stick to my promise.


With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
