This so called "best reaction" is wrong. The sooner the Perl community stops that self-delusion the better.

You can engage with kookery on its own level, but isn't there an opportunity cost to doing so? I know everyone's free time isn't completely fungible, but for me every hour I spent addressing kookery is an hour I could have spent writing or writing about Perl.

    Reminds me of an old saying:

    "Do not bother trying to teach a pig to sing, you'll just annoy the pig and waste your time."
