in reply to Re: On Being Polite
in thread Abigail-II and some thoughts

I have to say that beyond learning a couple of new things about Perl, going through those of your posts I did, I think you do get a "bad rap" when it comes to this. I expected to find many more examples than I did. Mostly, I think because I have aquired the feeling that you are a greater offender in this regard than most.

I now think that this impression is probably because as you are a "headline" monk, any transgression on your behalf tends to get inflated out of proportion.

Thank you! Thank you for doing that and reporting your findings. You're the second (third?) person who has done that, with similar results.

I could only wish that more of my detractors actually examine the record, which is very public. I'll stand behind my record. Yes, there are moments when I spew crap. But the ratio of non-crap to crap might surprise a few people here. {grin}
