...amongst the "Top Turds of comp.lang.perl.misc for 2007", the nice point being that the troll who popped up (link @ GG) in clpmisc saying so put me on the same level as Perl hackers I so greately respect and admire as: Jürgen Exner, Tad McClellan, A. Sinan Unur, Uri Guttman and Sherm Pendley; so I feel honoured. Unfortunately he also included moronzilla in the list, but then that's probably only a smart marketing operation aimed at increasing the insulting factor. BTW: I had spoken of "her" in a previous journal entry, but now that "her" appearances have become too frequent again I've killfiled "her". Thus it is by pure chance that I could notice "her" reply in the GG thread mentioned above, and this is fortunate because I eventually found a line in it that may make its way to my
I am number one turd, by far and by talent.

Back to the trollish incursion, it is interesting to notice that as far as my entry in the list goes, it is, literally:
3. Michele Dondi bla...@lcm.mi.infn.it
Surely one of the rudest Italians ever!
But then I almost never publish that email address account in clear, though in a previous discussion (link @ GG) some smart dumbass publicly "decyphered" (not much harm done since I still have an antispam filter) and then went on with usual, boring, annoying, moronic comments about "courtesy". So it's not that difficult to understand who the idiot is, although I doubt we could ever attach a face to him...
As far as the "italians" comment goes, probably the OP ignores that in Italy we have a very useful device
As far as Uri's entry goes, it's as follows:
2. Uri Guttman u...@stemsystems.com
Start using the Shift key, dumb ass. Quit hyping your pathetic
File::Slurp module so much. And cut out the whining!
Personal insults apart, I feel so strange having to admit I slightly agree with a troll for once. The all lowercase "style" is as rude to me as other forms of bad posting. However this is of course a whole another story. And yes: he uses to hype
File::Slurp quite a lot, but of course it's anything but pathetic.
