Who's Damien Moore? says:
"damien moore is a 1st dan junior black belt in tae kwon do".
For Damian Conway, there are 70 entries; sorry, none for Damien Conway ;-).
I'm shocked! And in his home city too. Come on!
BTW, I think it's clearer and more modern to say "The Damian".

As for two'ers mis-spelling his name as Damien, ...
Unless deliberately mis-spelling his name is an in-joke on this list,
then I guess the joke's on me.

Curiously, you're not alone. Here is the Changes file from
Acme::Lingua::Strine::Perl written by Simon Wistow (of London, I think).
(For nearly two years, its description was "Make Perl more like Damien").
