  • I'm here because there's no credible alternative. use.perl is an anachronistic embarrassment for Perl, but until we get a serious alternative, we're stuck with it. And you're right, it hurts our image.

    • What would a "serious alternative" look like?

      • Multiple blogs, better control of friends, allow anonymous responses, filtering responses, trackbacks, news aggregation, tagging, probably multimedia embedding (I know many would argue that point), source code coloring, richer HTML or other markup, etc. Plus full individual customization to turn off annoying features we don't want (such as tons of useless JavaScript).

        Basically, a site which looked like it's been invented some time in the past few years would be nice. Oh, and users to actually use it. Tha
