First, the node is perfectly titled. In large scale applications the CPAN's utility is limited as the greatest value comes from finely-tuned code that is heavily customized for the needs of the company using the application. I should know. I work in large scale environments.
Second, my node was not a critique of the CPAN. Read it again. It was a critique of those who claim that the CPAN makes up for any limitations (real or perceived) in Perl.
Third, I didn't write per say. Please direct your criticism correctly.
Fourth, if you're going to be pedantic, may I point out that in your charming "IT IS LATIN, PEOPLE, GET IT RIGHT" sentence, there should be a period or other appropriate punctuation after "PEOPLE." The comma is not correct. This is English. Get it right.
