Jumpstarting the Annual Perl Debate over Certification

[ #35281 ]

Whatever the merits of certification, it has always been a big hit among those who get to do the certifying.

Though the rationale for certification is always societal good, the real objective is different: siezure of power. Certification is not something we implement for the benefit of the society but for the benefit of the certifiers.

But the real issue here is not certification; the real issue is de-certification. Certain people are going to be kicked out of the fold, not because they are not useful to the needs of the market, but because they don't jump through the certifiers' hoops.
