in thread Rakudo Star (Perl 6 bundle) now supports MoarVM and JVM backends

If you believe that the perl-6 developers are uninterested in genuine criticism and have been an insular, isolated group unwilling to listen to outsiders for *years*, you start to feel that everyone not in the inner circle is disenfranchised. Of course your arguments will get louder and louder.

Wasn't that the argument used by disenfranchised groups in America for so long? "We won't take you seriously until you sit down and have a nice respectful conversation that doesn't disrupt the walls of privilege we've built around us."

That's the tone argument and it's bollocks. http://geekfeminism.wikia.com/wiki/Tone_argument

If you want to be disturbed by something, be disturbed that one of the participants in this "debate" has been actively censoring my position. He's unwilling to respond to arguments against Rakudo that it doesn't have users, that no one asked for a half-arsed implementation of Rakudo on three (and counting!) backends, that there's been an active *neglect* of documentation for *years*, and that the design of basic things like lists is still in flux. No, he rather prefers to label any criticism of his precious project as "trolling" so he can ignore criticism. Because every brilliant person faces persectuion, from Einstein to Watt to Hawking. But so do simple bozos, so criticism is no marker of brilliance.

Say what you like about Ralphie-boy (the man is peculiarly immune to self-reflection in a very TEXAN kind of way), but at least he keeps his whingeing personal and does not use it to censor things like PM posts or IRC logs.
