Please don't hold back, tell us what you really think! :) OK, enough with giving you are hard time...
What I have found for Perl::Critic is that it is a good developer testing module. It seems you have some strong opinions about numerous rules for Perl::Critic and that is OK. However, Perl::Critic addresses two major concerns that I consider more important than the actual rules
- Personal preference: It is easy enough to disable the rules you don't like.
- Consistency: If there are two programmers working together, you would like them to be able to have some sort of consistency in the work between them.
Also since Perl::Critic is a developer testing module rather than a required distribution module, there is no reason that it should be an issue when writing your code.
It is a tool that should make you happier and help, not be an opinion that is forced on you.
