A friendly request to all: stop throwing mud.

We are all aware that there are 4 parties here:

This poll was a wrong trigger, which is why I downvoted it. The discussions about the name are long behind us: it is a station past. Let us just go on and enjoy the beauty of both dialects of perl. If you don't like either, don't post negative comments just because you don't like it. Respect the choice of the other users.

I am really appalled by the comments I read in this thread that have nothing to to with the poll or the usability of either of our beloved perl versions.

So, can we please move on and post solutions here?


Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn
