Stuff with the Perl Foundation. A couple of patches in the Perl core. A few CPAN modules. That about sums it up.

Hate mail spam

[ #10705 ]

Spam is pretty obnoxious, but when it's used to spread racist views, it crosses the line into pure evil. I recently received some French hate mail spam and was absolutely disgusted by what I read (moving my lips and sounding out the words, of course).

Car ils savent bien, et le gouvernement sait bien, que de plus en plus de français honnêtes, travailleurs, en ont ras-le-bol de cette situation où la racaille immigrée est l'objet de toutes les sollicitudes.

Roughly translated:

As the [French] government knows well, more and more honest, hard-working French, are dissatisfied with the situation of the immigrant rabble being the object of all concerns.

My French is rusty, so that may not quite be right, but it's pretty durned close and fits with the rest of the BS warning about the "Islamization" of France.

It frustrates the heck out of me to read stuff like this, but it's so common an attitude. Le Pen is the French Pat Buchanan. For an antidote, read Silence is Evil (currently linked in my .sig).
