Perl and 'use strict'

Most tutorials about Perl will tell you to always 'use strict' or something to that effect.

However, the general rule for Hotdog LINUX is to not 'use strict'.

The reasoning behind this is that each Perl script should be as simple as possible. It should be simple enough to not need 'use strict'. If it gets to the point where the script would be easier to deal with if it did 'use strict', then that is an indicator that the script is too complicated and should be broken up.
