in reply to Perl Mailing List

If you like very busy mailing lists, you can try subscribing to's mailing list, or to the Perl Beginners mailing list, which despite the name gets a fair share of medium level questions.
For a much more sedate mailing list, you can try's mailing list, which currently gets only a few mails per week.

As someone else pointed out, there are many groups listed on However not all are active (in fact a good share are not active at all) and from those that are, not all are in English (both and are English only).
Maybe other people will now give links to other active, English langauge mailing lists of other user groups. It's up to you to decide which you want to subscribe to. However I don't think there is lack of choice...

    It's worth pointing out that many (maybe even most) Perl Mongers mailing lists are predominantly social lists. Whilst very few of them actually consider Perl questions to be off-topic[1], you'll often come across a _lot_ of non-Perl chatter on a Perl Mongers mailing list.

    [1] Tho' comes to mind.
