Bad idea. Definitely bad idea.

silent11: /msg PodMaster why pink?
PodMaster: because green is reserved for pod ;)
What is the point of your post? So there are stupid people. There have always been stupid people. There have always been stupid people place above you. The only slightly interesting aspect in this is, what are you going to do about it?

How about the editors coming up with a single, recommended style for all posted code.

That's a great idea! Let the editors look at my coding style, which is the only one true style, and enforce that on everyone posting here. I'd say, a post containing code that doesn't have that style shouldn't even be allowed to be posted.

I thought the best part of waking up is the fact that you aren't dead.

I don't write s‎crip‎ts - I write application frameworks. I just happen to use a language that once was a s‎crip‎ting language.

You say 'we'. Does that mean that you're involved with Perl developement?

Well, I haven't voted yet, but had I voted, it'd have to be >15 years, because it wasn't "sort of" my idea. :-)

-TimToady in response to this poll
It contributes to my unease about perl6 that the model there appears to be a formal language with an unambiguous grammar, rather than a natural language.

Speaking of BSD's Ports and the CPAN:

One great automated package management system plus another great automated package management system equals almost the same work as no automated package management system.
When you get a chance to get paid to learn something new, you should never refuse (unless it's torture or chemical weapons manufacture or something).

It's only geekiness if it goes in a leather case on your belt when not in use...
