Can we stick to Perl?

[ #18120 ]

barbie thinks that President Bush made some tasteless jokes concerning the missing WMD at the Radio and Television Correspondents’ Association dinner.

Please do not drag me or my fellow soldiers into these sort of discussions. We can take care of ourselves. We know what we think, and the soldiers around me think the jokes are hilarious.

    • You missed this:

      I wonder if the men and women still there, facing daily horrors I cannot begin to imagine, find it funny. I think not.
      • I'm not sure if I should wade in... or just watch from the shore.

        I was in the military for a while (1981 - 1991).

I've found the best thing to do is work to ignore the individuals who persistently annoy you, by not going to their journals, and if necessary, by making them a Foe and giving Foes a -6 comment bonus [perl.org] in your preferences, and setting your threshold to 1 or higher.

        The only foes that I have seen here are some people who came in to put up what were obvious trolls. None of those people post regularly.

  • We've never stuck to Perl before! This has long been a forum for who is returning from a war, choosing what phone to buy, why Macs/Linux are cool, etc. ;)
