No, it is not.

Do we need to escape the backslash operator in Perl when the string is
inside single quotes? When I read the manual some years ago I had the
impression that we don't need to. But in reality we need to.

It's better to state explicitly whether it needs to or not.

Yahoo and Gmail must die. Yes, I use them, but they still must die.
