    Thanks for comments.

    I don't promote this site. I only introduce this site.

    Maybe, I will introduce the entry which is written by Perl newbie.
    Quality is not problem. Internet have mixed good and bad sites.

    I only introduce the new content about Perl tutorial.

    If you have your favorite Perl tutorial site, I can introduce the site.
    If you feel injustice, I introduce your most recommended site.

    I think it is good to increase Perl site.
    Most bad things is looking down, ignore, negative campaign to Perl.
