Last month's Religious Wars debate was quite entertaining - if only to see
the debaters having a hard time arguing their case! Many have asked that we
do it again, so here goes... This time, it's a much more straightforward
"That whitespace is for weenies."
Perl vs. Python
Obviously, the Perl team will be arguing the affirmative. Also, by popular
demand, we've changed the rules slightly to accomodate a more educational
The vote to decide the winner at the end will be based on the number of
people interested in using the team's chosen tool in the next month. For
example, in the last debate, Emacs would have won, given the amount of
people interested in learning more about it post-debate.
If you'd like to be a part of the debate please email myself at
