The real question is: why come to a site full of Perl fans to see what's so bad about Perl?
I find 2 reasons:
- Many Perl newcomers here at the monastery can give valuable experiences on what they are finding hard to learn of Perl
- Also, the weak points of any subject should be spotted by experts in that subject, and perlmonks has more experts in Perl than a Python forum
Perl is great... but not perfect, that is what Perl6 is all about, no?
