Although I seriously doubt that PM is about to be a has-been (although some snark that it has been for some time), I do think that it has become an abusive place
No, cupcake, it's just you that we abuse here, because you keep posting tripe like this and your endless "Honest, guys, I really, really, really don't care about downvotes! But stop giving me so many. And we should abolish them entirely anyhow." bullshit. Not to mention the bad advice and provably incorrect answers to technical questions, such as Re: I seek DBI wisdom concerning bind parameters, posted two days ago, claiming (incorrectly) that DBI's execute method requires that its parameters be passed as an arrayref.
