    use.perl is a toy. It's a much-loved toy which has been around for a long time, but as a test bed for new Slashdot features (does anyone still read that site?), it's quite unsuitable in the "central Perl blogging location" role that the Perl community has thrust upon it. I think we should simply be expecting that it's going to break, it's going to have bugs and if we don't like the JavaScript BS that it's filled with, too bad. Of course, I don't think Pudge has tried to push use.perl for anything other than what it is and it's our own fault for having different expectations. use.perl is, well, not useful.
