  • I read the Wall Street Journal and I also see a Slashdot RSS feed and every day, I see at least one or two stories that were headlines in the WSJ -- after I've read it.

    When that happens, it's not "news", it's advertising.

    I'm for Perl-only, please (unless you're filtering Slashdot for mentions of Perl).
