in thread Political alignment of the Perl community [OT]

I suppose you are correct. This post was actually inspired by the boycott O'Reilly thread, and Wassercrats opinions on books containing information on how to hack and lockpicking. Seeing as so many people were against his opinions (I'm not commenting period), I was curious to see if Wassercrats is more right wing authoritarian than the rest of the community, and this is where some of the friction comes from. I am sorry for any unrest this post has caused.

    Asking about political orientation usually leads to flame wars and angry users. You can see this sort of thing on if you are interested. That will also confirm for you that not everyone who uses Perl has the same political orientation.
