I've no problems with snark, but he can use help with his history:

"Folks who write perl have to put up with a lot of shit. Everything
was like that back in the olden days, but today, Ruby has Gems, Linux
distros have Real Package Management (and I sure as hell don’t mean
RPMs, I mean APT), and even java ninnies have things like Maven and
Ivy to 'try to be reproducible'. Perl has answered this with CPAN"
