in reply to Seven good reasons for Perl

As Perl's becoming less popular

I strongly doubt that Perl is indeed becoming less popular over the net. During my stay here I have seen countless amounts of people who are new to the language and in search of help. If anything, Perl is still growing strongly. In my own community I have had over two dozen people begin coding in Perl after they were first introduced, and they happen to love every minute of it.

Now when the issue of Wassercrat comes into play, this will of course take a very different turn. I can understand dragon's aggravation towards Wasser, but still, we shouldn't continue to feed his own ego in a sense. If someone decides they think Perl isn't the greatest thing since sliced bread, then fine, everyone is entitled to an opinion. But when it gets to the point that people begin to feed him, a game is made out of it, which seems to torment a majority of the community. We cannot automatically reap all of the nodes Wassercrat creates, this would be un-fair towards him reguardless of his current opinions. As much as I have read so far, he hasn't said anything racially offending, threatened others, or done anything overly offending in those senses.

Just don't feed him when it comes around to it. It only creates more strife.
