    Is this more of the less-anachronistic Perl way of pushing people out the door, especially those who do stuff ?

    I hope not.

    Thanks pudge for use.perl.org. I like it and while I have nothing much to say, I like reading this site and do so on a daily basis.

    The writing has shall we say has a certain cognitive resonance.

    Strangely enough, to me it looks crisp and readable, but then I have always thought that pictures unless they are good (and usually that means the products of artists who illustrate their prose [Ardizone, Burningham ...]) don't add much.

    By comparison, the look of say PerlBuzz is Ok too, but the tone .... the politically-correct-call-no-one- a-slimey-mofo is not one that appeals to me.

    I also read Ars Technica, and although it has pictures (and ads ad-infinitum) its the content that gets my attention.

    • It's sad that the philosophy of trying not to be a dick to other people is tarred with the broad brush of "politically correct," thus making it easy to dismiss.

      Clearly, there is a market for websites where calling others a slimy mofo is encouraged. I'd never considered this as a market niche.
