  • If they don't think Perl is good enough, then why won't they allow it? What are they afraid of? That it might *gasp* win?
    • I don't get it either. They did accept entries in Perl after a few people emailed them, but it was the fact that they virtually dismissed it in the first place. It really does seem like there is a growing acceptance that Perl doesn't cut it any more. To my mind it's simply the fact that Perl doesn't have a major company behind it to promote it to the wider audience. Difficult to know how to improve that, but I do get good feedback when I do LUG type events. Maybe we need to persuade old dears to donate their inheritance to the the camel sanctuary [perl.org] instead of the donkey sanctuary [thedonkeys...ary.org.uk] in future. ;)
