  • First point:

    You don't like Perl 6.

    You did not involve yourself in that project.

    You don't like what others have done.

    You have some weird ideas on how community projects work: you think that there's a cabal that controls the project. Well, you may call it a cabal, but anyone can join. You just have to write some idea in the mailing lists, or talk on the IRC channels, or submit a patch to the code or the documentation.

    If you have an interest in the outcome of the project, you don't ignore it for 12 years and t
    • Wow, the more I think about your reply, the more I am amazed. Do they have this kind of hold on you? Look at the logo they pushed. Look at the response Wall and his minions had on that. Look at what they do, look at what they say. Look at the discussions, the sheer insanity of Wall's answers. These are the leaders you want? Wow. Just wow.

        Give me a break. More conformist behavior. I'm tired of it - and a lot of other people are too.

        • Give me a break.

          From what?

          You are the one who brought up P::RD. Then you proceeded to fantasise a completely hypothetical response to your point; then worked yourself into a lather over the fantasy; then proceeded to hallucinate that something real took place – and yeah, then you needed a break from an “exchange” which took place entirely inside your head.

          You know what the funniest thing is?

          Everyone already knows to avoid Damian-ware. Imagine. No one is offended. No one cares.
