Hell yeah - I mean, err, why else does anyone read c.l.p.m ?

Remind me to start a bot that autoemails people the contents of:
http://www.5sigma.com/perl/topten.html

preferably still in HTML format. Now that I think of it the worst part of the
new www.perl.com site is that it includes a pointer to c.l.p.m. without an
attached health warning. And, amusingly, a search for 'perl community' turns
up precisely no documents. Well well well.
