  • 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.
    • Crazy ideas are fine

      I've read some of shlomi fish's essays about why perl sucks so badly.

      No wonder few people welcome him. I doubt I'd be welcome at a meeting of pro-software patent laywers and MEP's right now. But I don't expect them to like or welcome me.

      Of course when I bitched about them it was based on informed opinion and what I have seen in practice and I got of my arse and did something useful (lobby my politicians join and contribute to ffii mailing list debates and correspondance with the UK

      • Well, I revised some of my original opinions (or at least the impressions they commonly left from the "Usability of the Perl World to Newcomers" essay in the year and some later conclusion [berlios.de]. As for the Perl 6 Critique - it was not directed at anyone personally, but rather at the Perl 6-related activity, which I predicted to accomplish little good. I realize I may have stepped on the nerves of some people, but this was my opinion and I still stand by it.

        If I have ever offended anyone unjustly (in regards to Perl or otherwise) - I apologize.

        P.S: none of my essays say that Perl "sucks so badly". In fact, one of my essays says precisely the opposite [perl.org]. My essays instead criticized several undesirable aspects of the Perl world, and gave better alternatives.

        However, I think we are missing the point. What difference does it make what opinions I expressed as long as my IRC behaviour is perfectly acceptable, and I don't step on anyone nerves on the IRC?

        • However, I think we are missing the point. What difference does it make what opinions I expressed as long as my IRC behaviour is perfectly acceptable, and I don't step on anyone nerves on the IRC?

          Because irc.perl.org/#perl is populated with the folks whose nerves you've already stepped on.

          There's a reason why autrijus put #perl6 on irc.freenode.org. They're a lot more forgiving over there.
