FWIW, I think #perl on Freenode is pretty nice to newcomers. #perl on
irc.perl.org isn't, but then it's not really designed to be. IIRC,
irc.perl.org will at some point start pointing to Freenode so that the
newbies the the useful #perl :)

I don't know much about a Ruby or Python community, but the Lisp
community is much worse than the Perl community. I get the impression
that the Haskell community is pretty nice, but I've never gotten good
answers to my questions on #haskell or #xmonad, so YMMV. Eventually I
got tired of dealing with Haskell and switched to OCaml, which I haven't
had any questions about so far :)
