  • it's being really damn creepy. If you're that OCD about Liz and nms and perl stuff in general, I'd strongly recommend a several week holiday in the BVI without your laptop. Seriously, it's nice you fessed up but that's some seriously fucked up weird shit that you may not have stopped doing if she hadn't pressed matters. Take a holiday Dave.

    • I wonder if you would consider it as creepy if Liz were not female. To me, it seems like just being a dick, not being stalky/creepy. I don't require a response from you, hfb, just my idle wonderings. :-)
      • Honestly? No, probably not. This is the same kind of weird shit you see on CLPM and IT'S FREAKY. Maybe it's just 'being a dick' around perl but in the real world most people would likely consider it extremely abnormal behaviour with overtones of OCD. If you like, I could harrass you similarly and see what you think after a day or two. :) I commend Liz for busting him for it but it probably happens a lot more frequently where the women just don't say anything and go off to somewhere else. It's probably somet

        • Of course, what the hell do I know as the fashion around Perl is that just about every person with an 'obvious' female name is actually a lurking Dutchman embracing his inner sassy girlfriend.
          LOL. Dan's Rule #1 of the Internet: Everyone is male until proven otherwise.
          • :) Well, I just find it weird that so many guys want to play women around here as I spent years on BBS's and Usenet as a man since, in my experience, it made life much easier and fuckwit free[er].

            • Well for my part, Barbie is a nickname I've had for nearly 20 years. The initial nickname was originally an attempt at an insult. It later got abreviated. Seeing as most people were introduced to me personally as Barbie, including many MD of the companies I've worked for, and clients previously no-one has ever questioned my gender. In my role as a lighting engineer in the music business, having an unusual moniker helped people remember you and call you up for work. Only in recent years have people thought I was hiding behind a disguise.

              I don't try and pretend to be female, people just assume it. On occassions when I can be bothered I do correct people. The majority of my posts include a link to the Birmingham.pm website, which includes plenty of (bad) pictures of me.

              That's the closest I ever come to telling anyone how the name came about. Grep [perl.org] will be guttered he didn't get to hear it first :)
