Discussion on: How to remove condescending language from documentation

This is a really interesting idea, thanks for that. It had never occurred to me before.

I do worry that some dry humour will be lost, as in this classic from perldoc:

[substr()] return value is based at 0 (or whatever you've set the $[ variable to--but don't do that).

But it's a small price to pay.
