General Development "In order to be an effective programmer, you need to possess a combination of traits that allow your skill, experience, and knowledge to produce working code. There are some technically skilled developers who will never be effective because they lack the other traits needed. Here are seven traits that are necessary to become a great programmer."

How is it lame? The language makes programs that aren't maintainable.

It's lame. You made a sentence that makes no goddamn sense, so we should blame English?

Programmers are writing bad code, just some languages give them more rope to hang themselves.

I'll admit that Perl has some idioms that can be more easily abused than the idioms of other languages, but it's otherwise a perfectly fine programming language. You can write spaghetti in any language, even statically-typed OO languages (in those languages, we call that kind of spaghetti "enterprise frameworks").
