in thread Regarding style

I don't think anyone uses m// anymore. i imagine that some people don't even know what it is! Languages evolve and perl is a language. Since m// is arguably the most used regex function, I don't disagree that it's use is optional.

Let me ask you this...would you downvote code if it used an m instead of leaving it out?
