      Birds are dinosaurs and they are an incredibly successful class of animal; besides being maybe the most lovely and melodious. Many, many, many symbols are either historical or mythological. This, in and of itself, does not detract. I like dinosaurs and I like Perl. The only Perl swag I own is a velociraptor patch. I never even considered wanting anything before someone put that together. An onion badge…? A camel hoodie…? Nerts.

      You can bark orders at others to do this, do that the way you want… it’s not going to result in anything but friction and is more likely to set others against you than gain sympathy to your view.

      And “a real agenda”? This comes off as paranoia. We must market Perl, cry the JAPHs! No! You’re marketing Perl wrong, cry the JAPHs!

        Birds ain't dinosaurs. They evolved from them. Birds are no more dinosaurs than we are prototheria.

        Enoch was right!
        Enjoy the last years of Rome.

        • If you're trying to say that the dinosaur is not generally recognized as a symbol of something that's dead, you're being disingenuous.
        • If you believe that the "Perl 6" fans do not have an agenda, you're being naive.
        • Just because you're paranoid it doesn't mean everybody's not out to get you.

        Oh, and, aherm, "miaow?"

        The way forward always starts with a minimal test.
