in reply to The cult like aura...

Because that's the way people behave and, any personal obervations to the contrary, the perl community is made up of people. It's just a religious fight, the same way that the browser fights, editor fights, religious fights (real ones--there is life outside of computers), economic fights, philosophic fights, or sports team fights.

It's just people, for better or worse.
