in reply to Reaped: Perl or Java

Besides not liking the language as much (just the structure of everything) and not liking the community (no javamonks) I don't like having to sit while my browser downloads a ton of worthless java crap from sombodies website that doesn't actually add to their content. I usually surf in Lynx (which is text only, no java/javascript) or Opera for Linux (which I havn't gotton the java plugin to work for) so even if I wanted to view something done in Java it would be difficult. I guess my main problem with java is it's abused on sites (like many many other html/javascript features) so that downloads take longer.
