I'm not confused about everything else because I helped plan and continue to support these changes behind the scenes. As others have pointed out, a lot changed while you were away.

You're taking things more personally than you need to, but that's generally your style. That's not new. The three folks you mentioned have been pretty instrumental in turning the channel around from the horrors of ages past. As a lead oper, they'll continue to get my support.

Let me put it a different way since nothing seems to be getting through (and yes, you can take this as personally as you want):

You don't contribute anything to the channel. Over the years, the only thing you've contributed has been nasty loud conversations in which you attempt to shout down anyone who you have a difference with. Do you remember the last presidential election? Do you think any of that conversation helped irc.perl.org #perl be a better place for people to talk about and learn about perl?

If you want to contribute to the community in a useful, calm, collaborative fashion, let us know. Otherwise, you can continue being banned and bitching on your blog like a teenager.

No. It's standard practice to turn #perl on irc.perl.org into a channel that we're not ashamed for new users to come into. This is most of why *I* am not in there anymore.

This is not the #perl you grew up with and it's not the #perl that tolerated all of our fights and bullshit.

While I've not read a transcript of this latest interaction, you need to understand that times have changed and old regulars are not immune from the process. You can come along for the ride and help out or you can get out.
