Excellent post!! I have to say I am glad you toughed it out!! I wish I had been there closer to the beginning, but it's probably better that I missed the Clique Wars. I thought PerlMonks had been around longer -- I had no idea that I joined roughly 2 years after it had started! I suppose you could say that several of the regulars have changed, but on the other hand several of the current regulars have been in that role for several years. It's hard for me to think of PerlMonks without thinking of e.g. ikegami, BrowserUK, jdporter, tye and all of the others I am missing. And merlyn, chromatic, and Ovid still show up. The community that has built up around Perl really sets it apart, and PerlMonks exemplifies that. Thank you for fostering and supporting such a great community, and thank you for documenting some of the early days!!
