The quotes show that there are more than zero Perl developers who think that
reinventing the wheel is a good idea, but on the other hand, the likes of
myself are strongly opposed to reinventing the wheel on political grounds.

This is precisely the opposite of what you are arguing, and so I don't
see how you think those quotes back you up.

<Twofish> Pokemon seems an evil concept. Kid hunts animals, and takes
them from the wild into captivity, where he trains them to fight, and
then fights them to the death against other people's pokemon. Doesn't
this remind you of say, cock fighting?
