Funny, the people who make C compilers don't seem to have that quandary. I
think it encourages people to learn proper coding faster. Now perl on the
other hand is more lenient and lots of people never learn how to write
proper programs in perl which is a lot different than learning how to write
working perl programs. Just ask the poor slob that has to maintain them

If you don't force them to learn, they aren't. So we are going to be stuck
with bloated browsers because to many people are to clue-impaired to
recognize the </td> tag that just bit them. It validates my basic
elitist-misanthropic philosophy.

Now when I write perl programs with all the variables and comments written
in Klingon, Latin or Sanskrit, its because I'm an evil bastard, not because
I'm a poor programmer.
