The words "money" and "mouth" come to mind.

I can think of one good reason to use perl instead of C# - C# is not  
for scripting. It gets more difficult after that, but perhaps you've  
got some better ones?

[1] check out the full list of languages, too.
[2] Perl doesn't need better PR, or a 'killer app', or less sigils,  
or to learn from others - it's not dying! ;)
[3] It's influenced by Haskell, too ;)
