in reply to Let's finish Imager::GIF

Whoever moved this node from "cool uses" to seekers was wrong. This is not a question, it is a call to arms. I thought we could use Perlmonks like a wiki to collectively improve some old CPAN modules. Since this idea is slightly outside the box I realize it won't fly with Jerry's kids... never mind.

    Maybe those who voted Keep donít understand what you wrote because itís a USA-ism. Itís awful. Youíre an awful person for writing it.

    Itís not a call to arms either. Itís a plea from an anonymous source to do someone elseís workóapparently a namespace squatter tooódevoid of rationale for why this package is worth anyoneís time and how it is doing something or addressing some need Image::Magick, GraphicsMagick, or Imager donít already.

      One doesn't need to be US American to notice the offense.

      I checked Urban Dictionary before voting reap.

      ... at least people can still down vote it under the public display level.

      itís a USA-ism. Itís awful.


        Itís making fun monks who arenít ďavant-gardeĒ enough to understand the insight and revolutionary thinking of the OP by comparing them to children with muscular dystrophy and thereby ridiculing kids with muscular dystrophy. Jerry Lewis ran fundraisers and a telethon from the 50s to 2010. The children he was raising money and awareness to help came to be known as Jerryís Kids pretty early on.

    You and he were both wrong. Posts like this belong in Meditations, and that is where I have moved it. Thanks for your patience.
