  • The biggest issue I have with this whole thing is that the technical discussion that was occurring between Matt S Trout, Schwern, Perrin and a couple others was excellent. The insight that I gained by reading their discussion on multiple inheritance, delegation and plugins, I haven't been able to find anywhere else. By simply ignoring the mail from Sebastian and for the most part Tony I was able to focus on the technical discussion at hand.

    Unfortunately the list has been shutdown and the thread will not continue, leaving people who were learning from this thread in the dark and killing off a really good discussion.

    Last night at our local PM meeting of course this topic came up, and there were multiple attendees who felt the same way.

    • I was sad to see it too. Unfortunately, there are real world consequences when people stop being civil and "raise their voices" on mailing lists. Politeness might seem like an antiquated notion to some people, but it is the thing that allows us to disagree without causing a body count, and when it goes out the window, things like this happen.
