in thread Reasons for Using Perl 6

The downvotes will begin because you are the laziest and most ignorant PerlMonk there is. I can write that and be upvoted because every PerlMonk who has been here more than a year knows I'm typing truth and the few who were willing to defend you specifically—on social grounds only, there is no technical defense—are becoming exhausted.

You know less about Perl 6 than even Perl 5 and your knowledge of any Perl is contradicted by the C or JavaScript idioms you include in your few terrible attempts to write Perl hours or days after seekers of wisdom already have complete, varied answers. If you were a beginner, I'd be a badguy right now, but you're not. You're an avowed expert with decades in who has heard these, and gentle versions of these, admonishments a couple hundred times now. Taken at face value you should be a far more competent hacker than I am but I have corrected your technical assertions many times on a number of on and off topics and I'm an entirely average hacker, well below many of the monks here on the guru totem.

There is almost nothing you got right in your post except that Perl 6 might have been better named something other than Perl but your question on why it is what it is betrays continuing ignorance. Wall wanted it, that's why. That's it. End of story. The name carried weight and it's possible Perl 6 never would have even left the gate, as late as it did, without that weight. Which would mean no Moose, no mro, no plenty of things. Perl 6 sparked interest in "Perl" which led a lot of new users and traffic to Perl 5 despite idiot assertions to the contrary. It's all goddamned free too and you have never contributed a useful line to any of it so your opinion is the raw sewage of undigested aphorisms.

You can continue to pretend you are a peer to even the average beginner here—who at least is learning—but you are not and your attempts at building a Perl presence here will now and forever after be nothing but nails in your professional coffin because I've had it and the upvotes, perhaps hubris on my part, of this reply will show that I'm not alone. Good Lord, one could practically make Pope doing nothing but writing rebuttals to every post you've ever written because, as "they"™ say: the jig is up.

    "On the other hand, we denounce with righteous indignation and dislike men who are so beguiled and demoralized by the charms of pleasure of the moment, so blinded by desire, that they cannot foresee the pain and trouble that are bound to ensue; and equal blame belongs to those who fail in their duty through weakness of will, which is the same as saying through shrinking from toil and pain. ...
