Two encounters: On our Perl list someone asked for help and it turned out his manager set a policy not to use strict. On the local Linux list while trying to help someone I found out that they are using a home made module called DB for database access which I guess means they cannot use the debugger of Perl as that also lives in the same name-space.
I really don't know how to deal with such situation other than running away.
I mean, my little children already know they should put on the seat-belts when in the car and should not run around with scissors.
