I got Tony Bowden's email this morning. He doesn't like my Will Class::DBI fork? post in my O'Reilly weblog. He made vague references about lawyers and courts, and I'm not sure that he didn't mean to direct that at me.
I've told him he needs to get his story out that and repair the damage he's doing. No one is going to make this any better with lawyers, and someone has to be the adult.
As it is, people at OSCON have told me that this little mess is enough to scare them away from Class::DBI no matter how great it is. Some people consider the source of software when making their decisions.
