I'll teach you to be coherent, you uncontentious jellyfish!!!
I said you were right. Maybe third time is the charm. I think pedantic, backwards looking concerns like the one you raised are silly and I said it when you forced it. Nothing is ideal in the entire world. Bitching about $a/$b when that's just how it works and it looks like a defense of the clock-that's-correct-twice-a-day… well, log in next time and you'll be treated with whatever respect, deference, and benefit of the doubt you've earned. AnonymousC^HMonk is no one to me and you can have my absurdity when you pry it out of my cold, de^W^W 88wpm fingers.
Perl is not pretty good. It's the best high level language there is by far for me. I wouldn't be a professional programmer if it didn't exist despite having an extremely early introduction to computer science for my era and all the tools handed to me at home and in school. I love Perl. I use Perl. I contribute to the CPAN and the projects of others. I publish my useful scripts and write tutorials here and there. I host learning meetings at work. I help Perl seekers wherever I meet them and help my Perl betters with tasks at my level. Keep your "no, you," your ho-there, your faint praise. I'll keep having fun with Perl.
So you know my account wasn't hijacked, I'll digitally sign -> :P
