in reply to The war against Perl, by random wikipedia editors

I often have trouble correcting things on Wikipedia. I looked at this and tried to edit but right now my IP is blocked by Wikipedia. I investigated who did it and the person responsible is identifiable only as a white lesbian canadian with health issues who is therefore unable to be contacted to challenge her decision. Infamy! Infamy! They've all got it in for me.

Update: I also blame Google of course - as usual for searches, on this topic, the first few are not the best and the results quickly descend into irrelevance and hype. One example just assumes you have to code in C++. Preferring C++ to Perl is a bit like preferring Assembler to Visual Basic.
