This is a meditation on the need to type somewhat negative words at the top of every perl script. Does this have negative consequences for advocacy? I don't know but synonyms for "warning" include "promise of harm," "frightening off," and "talking out of;" and words matter to the mind. How about a nice happy pragma that aliases strict and warnings, without sounding too scary, and has a more positive meaning like maybe: "use perl".
