in reply to Delegating responsibility of one's CPAN distributions

In bed last night, I went through terrible thoughts of "what the 'hell' did I post, I'll never be able to face Perlmonks again".

The post was made in a clean and sober state, but I was genuinely curious, and spurred by yet another tragedy in my life.

I was looking for reality, and I got it.

Want to thank and show appreciation for everyone who responded. It's a terrible thing when we lose someone close to us (or the communities we serve), so I know it's an exceptionally difficult subject.

The info presented is both informative and wonderful. I've read many great nodes and information and for that, thank you.

By the way, I'm hoping I have a couple of good years left yet... I still got that Perl Breathalizer project I've promised people I'd finish...

    Nonsense, sorry!

    Some may call me cold hearted, but I think the mourning branch in this thread is missing the point.

    Estimates say there are 15 dead people for every person living in human history.

    It's only clear-sighted to expect the dead CPAN authors outweighing the living in the not so distant future.

    Thanks again.

      "It's only clear-sighted to expect the dead CPAN authors outweighing the living in the not so distant future."

      I may be missing your drift here LanX, perhaps through language barriers.

      I am in no way, nor has anyone else (I don't think), denouncing anyone deceased, especially there's been no comparison between the dead and dead CPAN authors.

      Seems as though people have been respecting the dead people they know is all, but I could be wrong.

      Let's put this in perspective as to why I wrote the post:

      • had my niece and eight other friends murdered in a mass shooting
      • had my mother fusking entire area evacuated by forest fires in which I chose to return, across lines to ensure friends in the area had supplies
      • My wife had a very close friend shoot himself in the head
      • A mutual friend died from OD
      • My mother fscking brother will spend life in prison
      • My daughter up on four felony counts in the US
      • Another tight family friend, dead
      • I have a body count. Again, I'm missing something here, but unless there's a loss in translation, I don't believe I'm missing a point.

        Update: I respect you greatly, LanX, so please don't take this as animosity... I'm just venting. It's been a hard walk bro.

        Oh ... maybe I took your question to technically, i.e. how to clarify the heritage of a module.

        Sorry for the personal losses you suffered. :(

        Did I understand something wrong? I thought "body count" meant the number of persons whose death someone caused
