Heh. The fact that the post was marked for reaping, and was subsequently removed in a few hours, clearly disproves your point. :)
And I smile every time I hear 'Perl is dead!', because it means the value of my knowledge has increased a little, and the value of this site continues to abide. I knew just a little when I joined almost twenty years ago. Now I know a little more, and still, I continue to learn, thanks to this site.
Bless you all.
