  • If you don't like Gravatars or CPAN Search, you don't have to participate. But, not only that, you can write your own. OF course, when you start that, you'll realize why the guy is asking for $10. Also, if Graham wants to spend his time doing other things and doesn't want to make his site open source, who cares? It's his project and he can do whatever he likes with it. You can start you're own project that meets your own non-technical. sociological, and political goals and do whatever you like with it.

    • I agree. Everyone who wants to contribute:

      1. Should start his own project.
      2. Provide his own server infrastructure.
      3. Evangelise in the community for the weeks or maybe months until he has some semblance of traction.
      4. Continue maintaining his project in isolation from the other similar projects.

      I don’t understand why people would want to pool their resources. In a situation with limited volunteer tuits available, it’s most effective to divide them over as many similar projects as possible.

      • Well, it works. I did it with Perl Mongers and The Perl Review, and many people have done it with their projects.

        When you remove the irony, you are really saying:

        1. Everyone must let just anyone mess with their project
        2. Someone who doesn't get paid should make their infrastructure open to everyone else, and maintain it for them
        3. People shouldn't have to work hard to promote their own work
        4. Somebody else should do most of the work

        Thre's no problem here, except people thinking they have a right to somethin
        • Step one is not being a public ass about it. You complain in public and attack people, and you just about kill your chances to help out. It's not a hard concept to understand, but geeks don't like it because it involves people skills.

          You were doing badly enough until you got to this part when you started insulting me. I had a nice, long, reasoned reply mentally queued up to go, but you just killed your chance of ever seeing it. Instead I feel moved to say this: brian, go fuck yourself.

          • brian, go fuck yourself.

            What a swell way to tell people that you're not someone to work with.



            • Whereas calling someone a 'public ass' is the perfect way to announce you're Mr Congeniality ;-)
