Aah, my apologies then, I misunderstood your intent. I don't think that there is "endless politicing" surronding merlyn. I think that there was a problem certainly, I think it was a communication problem where merlyn was genuinely trying to figure out how to post without getting constanly flamed.

I you've been following anything at all that he's posted in the past few days, you can see that it's obviously worked. Same content different tone (that's a win as far as I'm concerned).

It's under "Perl Monks Discussion", if you're fed up with the "politics" fine stop reading the section of the site where they're discussed. IMO these topics need aired and this is the correct forum. It would seem that the "problem" has been solved, hopefully to everyones satisfaction and we can now drop it.
