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.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
