in reply to response to "The Perl Community - a mixed bag of sometimes intollerance and sometimes fantastic help"

marto wrote, and hippo quoted, a good observation:

perception differs

So I consider discussing a person's perception in another forum to be a rather fruitless exercise. On the other hand, there's mst's direct reply to the blog post: This reply is a wonderful example for someone who understands that perception differs, and who took an active step towards de-escalation towards the same audience where the issue was presented.

Couldn't we just leave it at that?
