  • The bug tracker, which is where people expect to be able to submit bugs...

    How do people find the bug tracker? Magic powers?

    (My theory is that they look for suggestions on how to report a bug on the Parrot website.)

    • I have a theory too.

      People who complain about how the Perl developers are rude, and then intentionally post de-obfuscated developer e-mail addresses on a public web site that are certain to get picked up by spammers, have very little basis for their complaint.
      • As if spammers don't know how to deobfuscate that.

        Such obfuscation is ineffective and indeed does make using the email address harder.

        If you want people to report bugs, MAKE IT EASY AND OBVIOUS. If it takes longer than just typing the bug report itself, there will be people who no longer bother.

        It's still unnecessary and rude to deobfu it in a journal, though.

          Right. That is my only point. He likes to complain about how rude Perl developers are, and then he goes and does that. I think such obfsucation is pointless, but the people who did it don't, and I would respect their wishes, unless I was holding some sort of a grudge and I wanted to childishly "get back" at them somehow ...
