A short note on the Class::DBI mailinglist hullabaloo

[ #25948 ]

To put this in context: I was not personally there to see any of the recent kerfuffle that preceeded the closing of the Class::DBI mailinglist. I don’t know what happened and who is in the right.

All I saw was bewilderment and/or headshaking at Tony’s reaction. I don’t know what blame there is to place with him. The jury is out on this and most likely will remain out on this, as I have no interest in researching matters further than accidentally seeing tidbits about it as people feel compelled to pass judgement in public venues.

So when I saw Sebastien’s (apparently selective) account of the events, I initially took it at face value. That is, until I came upon this:


Seems the stories i heard from some (former) coworkers of you are true, no wonder you got not many friends in #perl.


Now Tony may or may not be equally at fault. The one thing I know, though, is that I have seen enough in my time on the ’net to know that an utterance such as the above is an infallible criterion for plonking the speaker.

  • that would be me...

    Although... taken out of context in this instance. Tony can be a rather hot-headed individual and can be stubborn about trivially small things. I believe this is what sri was referring to.
