You are extremely thoughtful and considerate as usual. In the list "On the other hand we have" I'd add:

  • We deal with awful beginner and legacy code at work where it is even held up as ideal because the manager wrote it so it's impossible to say how we really feel about it; then when presented with similar code in personal life it's easy and psychologically healthy to want rail it.

I don't act on it but at times in the past I have definitely wanted to. And while I admire this place, it's really on a per monk basis. I have a great deal of distaste for groups as units of persons. I like you, I like lots of monks. I don't like Perl Monks as a unit. I realize there are good reasons to explore community issues like you're doing. It's entirely uninteresting to me personally. I can't buy Perl Monks a beer or an espresso. If you, or any number of monks here I've come to admire and enjoy, were in my home town I'd gladly do so.
