  • > if it just wasn't so childish

    Thank you for saving everybody from one more childish action of you, because your post itself is already childish enough, since while you did take the time to do offensive irony, you didn't take the time to verify the following:

    1. Verify that Carlos Molina Garcia is from Venezuela, as you could have seen by just doing a Google search even BEFORE thinking about your post
    2. Verify that both Massimiliano Ciancio and Carlos Molina Garcia "springed into existance" as regular u

      So I was wrong. Hardly the first time that this has happened, and neither will it be the last time. It isn't worrying me a lot. It isn't uncommon to sense fishiness under the circumstances that I described. Tough luck that my assumptions were wrong. On the other hand, it has provoked a few rather amusing replies.

      "go figure" what??? Although Carlos is not italian, what do you mean with that? Your irony sounds offensive to all the italian programmers (and to me, being an italian), so you should explain its meaning or - better - write a public apology.

      Provided that I really was being ironic, why should I be apologizing then? If it was ironic, clearly I must have meant it the other way round.

      Ohhh... thank you for revealing us such a shamed aspect of your personality, I really appreciate your sincerity. Anyway, I suggest you to save your "alter ego" invention for writing some fake but good review about your own CPAN modules

      I wont rate my own modules unless I see a reason to give them a bad rating and thus discourage their use.

      Even without your downgrading, a few other non-italian regular users of the CBF and its mailing list have "springed into existance", reviewed and rated the modules based on the real usefulness they received not just from my work, but also from the support of a few other authors of other CBF extensions. I don't know whether this truly hurts you, or it's just you way to appear smarter, but a good psychologist may help you.

      I am not even a tiny bit concerned with your modules or in fact anybody's modules that live in a niche that I have taken no interest in. I think I lack this kind of vanity altogether.

      I didn't find your CPAN directory, please could you post here the list of your published distributions?

      So now it's you that didn't do a very thorough research if you consider that I've mentioned quite a few of my modules in my journal so far. This [cpan.org] is my CPAN directory.

      I don't know if they are more useful than your posts, but I'm sure that they would be more interesting for perl users than your irony, your pigeons, the European football championships, the Carnival, the snow, the weather, ... and every other less "childish" (but too often OT) posts you usually need to share with the perl community.

      If there's a charter that dictates on-topicness, I must have missed it. Other than that, people are free to ignore my journal altogether.
