I think your answer in this email is extremely rude and you didn't bother to answer the initial question, just post your critiques. I seem to find that throughout this board.

When someone asks a question for a specific answer, do you think they need to be bogged down with a bunch of criticisms that have nothing to do with the question at hand? The most irritating part is that after reading all the crap that was written, the answer to the original question is rarely there...when someone DOES address a question, the "answer" is usually incomplete.

This is so counterproductive to someone TRYING to learn. I would recommend that anyone trying to learn the basics of cgi and perl to leave this board and head over to and search for another one.

This seems to be a board just for propaganda. geez....

By the way, the person who posted the questions you are referring to in your above post actually posted a DIFFERENT question on the links you're referring to - and THEY WEREN'T ANSWERED EITHER.

This board and the people who claim to be helping are laughable.

      It has been suggested to rename Perl 6 in order to boost its marketing potential. Which name would you prefer?
