  • You're a direct beneficiary of core Perl contributions by ActiveState employees. Your abusive tone is totally uncalled for.
    • He never said they were kiddies. In fact he pointed out that they include many well-known people in the Perl world.

      He just said that their site looks like a fly by night site that was put together by kiddies. He's got a point. Although I must admit that I like the current design a more than the old one. That one looked like they ripped the artwork from some Soviet propaganda.

      Of course the people who are well-known at ActiveState are known for their programming abilities, and not their graphical prowess.
      • Hi btilly,

        Thanks for your comment. As usual, my high level of drama got a few feathers rilled.

        Anyway, I don't know graphic design and really can't comment on it, but I thought the site looked good. But that's part of what gives me the vibe -- sites that look really good but work very badly, especially with regards to user interface design. I can understand wanting to cut down on inappropriate email, but not letting people contact you until they've verified their account will keep you from ever hearing from people who are having trouble verifying your account, and that could, in theory, translate to people who want to give you money being unable to do so.

        Between that snafu and finding my efforts at finding documentation to be futile, the vibe is bad.

        I'm not going to be pretentious and scream about "all the money they're losing!" or anything like that, but I also don't agree with the people who think no one should say anything about the problem ;)
