in thread "running with scissors"

I honestly don't think that the majority of us want to push Merlyn away. I would love to learn more from him. He has a wealth of knowledge about Perl I wish I could download Matrix style right into my noggin.

That said, there seems to be a lot of craziness that goes on with having Merlyn contribute here.

He shares his personal life with us, and like 99% of people, there are messes in his personal life, and that makes some people uncomfortable. Sometimes it makes me uncomfortable.

I don't want him to go. I have learned about CGI and Cargo Cult programming, etc from his posts, and I wish him luck with his legal troubles.

I guess what I am trying to say is that we have a culture that aims to help newbies and allows for those shy and uncertain in Perl to have a voice and get the answers they need, and I encourage and cherish that culture.
