in reply to Professional Monks
One thing I like about this site, having lurked for a while before joining, is that the Meditations allows for this sort of discussion which is related to being a programmer, regardless of language. I've read good advice and good debate there, and this was what finally pushed me over the edge to register. Unfortunately, now y'all are afflicted with my tub-thumping platitudes ...
However, let us not forget that the main purpose of this site is for Perl monks to gather and discuss Perl. Yes, there is a need for a Meditations-like area, but it should not loom too large in the site's presence. I think that adding another, similar area would be starting on that slippery slope.
As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly.
