where are all the Perlnuns?

Is this celebacy thing for real? Does Perl cause impotence? Do we scare chicks away?

I'm sure many of us would die() for a Perlnun ;-)

Any females out there than can shed some light on this topic? c'mon Perl hacksters!

    Oh my! you'd die() for a perl nun? well isn't this my lucky day?

    Perhaps they are rolling their eyes in disgust and are too busy downvoting this inane post. There have been, not just one, but two polls on this. Not to mention endless /. wrangling on where are the yummy haX0r ch1X0r5.

    Monks can be of either gender. Some users on this site have a "male" or nuetral name, but are female. (and maybe vice-versa). Does it really matter what gender someone on this site is?

      Not to mention people like $code or die or jptxs ... I mean, what kinna gender is that?

      I definitely consider myself a perlmonk. Ok, ok, perl scribe. Maybe someday I can be the PerlPope. Doubt it, but gotta keep aiming high.

      We're here.

      Some of us are just lurking quietly about the monastery, having taken a vow of silence until we feel we have something worth posting.

      Or until we have become arrogant enough to post anyway.

      --Ziva, perlnun

      There's also neophyte. My girlfriend could be a PerlNun, but she recently switched from an English/Comp-Sci double major (with a minor in Math)...

      ... to a major in Medieval Studies (because those 4 subjects are SO related).

        Don't count me in, japhy. Only yesterday there was that CB talk, where I said you can refer to me as you wish, as long as its not nun or it.
        But you can refer to me as splattered with ink :).


        I guess she starts out her program with:

        use ye_olde_english;
