These are some of our most exciting campaigns yet and promise to net us hundreds of thousands of users if executed properly. The work that's needed is simple and should be trivial for anyone skilled in perl or other web apps languages. Please send mail to blake at cs.stanford.edu if you are interested and would like more details."

A lot of people hate PHP, I'm not one of them, but I can completely understand why someone might want to use Perl instead.

Also, I don't know how much more difficult it would be to create an entire new language that is incredibly similar to Perl than learn how to write actual Perl. I guess people can be happy that someone felt the need and had the time though.
