Too bad the average Perl coder is stupid :(

Yeah, stupid people shouldn't be allowed on the Internet.

In fact, they shouldn't be allowed to even program in Perl. Actually, why stop there? They shouldn't even be allowed to run Perl programs. Perl should just be for us 31337 h4x0rs. All these n00bs just hurt our image. I say we make Perl as hard as possible to use, that way these people won't even be able to figure it out. Fsck the maintenance programmers, they should be fired if they can't figure it out. Fsck people trying to learn from the code, if they can't figure it out they shouldn't be a programmer. I am great, everyone else is a fool.

Software isn't about elitism, it's about empowering people. The more diverse and accessible the tools, the better off society will be. Programming languages can be designed to allow maximum usebility, both by the expert and by the novice. It neednt be a choice between marginalizing one group or the other. Perl is an excellent example of this, let's keep it that way.

Peace :-)
