in reply to My Perlmonks Anniversarry

Forgive my saying, but you sound a bit like a fanatic. I mean, after all, it's just Perl, a programming language, and I seriously doubt that the purpose of the `monastery' and `monks' metaphores are meant to be anything but funny (remember cowboy neal with hat). Anyway, when it comes to Perl, the community has much skilled and experienced people to offer and they've always answered my questions, even though sometimes they weren't as friendly as I'd expected them to be.
