Another satisfied customer after fighting the long fight

[ #27962 ]
I search for "perl" in blogs constantly using RSS feeds from and, and in the midst of the noise, I found someone very frustrated with Perl.

His complaint arose because of a Unix-centric item in the FAQ, but he also noticed that also had some weirdness. I got onto IRC, found Robrt to look at the problem, got some email, and some resolution, and emailed the original guy to let him know what was what.

The result? He's now a happy camper, and we have one less person running around yelling "Perl sucks!". All in a day's work.
