  • 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
      • Be careful with that "Perl community". It's not just IRC (or use.perl, or whatever). It's not as if we all agree on everything, or anything. Pudge, for instance, is a fascist republican gun-lover who likes the Red Sox, and I'm not. Still, he lets me post on use.perl.
        • Pudge, for instance, is a fascist republican gun-lover who likes the Red Sox, and I'm not.

          See, and I'm a fascist republican pacifist gun-lover and gun-hater who couldn't care less about the Red Sox.

          Still, he lets me post on use.perl.

          Sometimes I wonder if my outlook is the closest to pudge's, or the furthest away. :)
