  • My IRC reputation in the Perl-related channels has become tarnished lately

    It's not merely lately.

    I don't know exactly why

    Because you have crazy ideas and express them crazily.

    As to why you were banned, I can't say, but no one can explain sungo's actions. Not even sungo.
    • "Because you have crazy ideas and express them crazily."

      Well, regardless of the validity of this statement, I don't think expressing crazy ideas in a crazy manner, should bring irrational IRC bans. The only thing that warrants an IRC ban is IRC misbehaviour. And I never misbehaved.

      Is the Perl community such that rejects people who think differently than the rest, and express their different opinions? I happen to know I'm not the only one who agreed with what I expressed in my essays. That shouldn't warran

        I agree entirely. But you're talking about sungo here, so reason is irrelevant.

        Is the Perl community such that rejects people who think differently than the rest, and express their different opinions?

        If by "reject" you mean "ban," you're referring to the actions of one person, not the Perl community; as the question presumes a state which does not exist, no answer is possible, except for the perhaps unfulfilling
        • Well, first I apologize for generalizing to the Perl community. And then - regarding sungo - ok I understand now. But it doesn't explain how it propagated to other #perl's in other networks, just because sungo banned me (and noone knew about it).
          • You're ignoring the issues here, and focusing on sungo and IRC.

            Your real problem is that you don't listen to what people say, and are not interested in conversing with anyone. You're an output-only data stream.

            You disagree with the way some things are in Perl 5, so you start waving a flag about how you're going to fork Perl into a new language named after yourself.

            You come in and say "The Camel Book should be given away!" and people explain why that won't happen, and that's not good enough for you.
