The purpose of this page is to help respond to FUD about Perl 6:
We want to provide a single place (i.e. here) that people can refer/link to when responding to FUD.
We want to wants to aggregate all the Q&A that's been written out there, and collect new material as it appears.
Guidelines for Responding to FUD
When responding to FUD, keep these things in mind:
Be reasonable — don't be an anti-FUD Nazi:
Some FUD is appropriate and legitimate.
There have been much longer delays than expected.
Perl 6 is still a very much early-stage work-in-progress.
Don't label all unfavorable remarks and opinions as FUD (in the sense of deliberately deceptive and malicious corporate or political spin). That's a needlessly provocative form of name-calling, so don't be a moron. :-)
Avoid arguing (i.e. trying to get someone to change their mind and agree with you). That's almost always a lousy marketing tactic. Just present interesting information and leave it at that.
Don't confuse anti-FUD with evangalism. Don't try to convert nay-sayers into Perl 6 fans.
