So your point really was as simplistic as "see, this graph slopes downward too.... mumble... FUD...". That is disappointing.
Yes, we aren't omniscient. These numbers might have nothing to do with reality. Heck, you might even just be a figment of my fevered imagination.
And that's a pretty pathetic argument in response to a prediction that the baseline drop will be to around 25% and so the many-fold greater drop for some "perl" searches is actually evidence (not proof) of a real decline. Especially when the only thing you offered was a graph that confirms the stated prediction.
I'll be happy if somebody steps up and comes up with things that actually result in Perl regaining more popularity (preferably by Perl actually offering extremely practical solutions for most of the things identified over a decade ago as things that it would be great for Perl 6 to "solve"). I strongly doubt such would come from me, even if I tried (I suck at "sales"). And I'm mostly not interested in arguing about it (beyond pointing out when I see basic arithmetic being denied).
