Funny how a bunch of people who claim they "used to do perl but
switched to python and now uber-programmers that chicks dig" turn up
on use.perl after it appears on reddit and then proclaim that they
know all about the health of perl, when nobody has heard of them and
they never bothered to ever even post to a perl monger list.

Obviously those are the people who should dictate what people who do
actually use perl should do.

What is it with python zealots that they really really wish Perl was
dying.. insecure much ?
