Why the shame? Because you have attacked me for I haven't done, wouldn't do and HAD NO INTENTION OF DOING. This has absolutely *no* relationship to aforesaid job search other than the problem is mostly the same ( I don't think the problem is even exactly the same ). I had NO FUCKING INTENTION of posting this "just so I could steal peoples work to get a job by cheating". None. If I had that intention, it would have been 10 times easier to steal it by googling for solutions, instead of risking my stealing being found out by someone, as the boss for said job could easily read perlmonks and see where I got my solution. This would be much more difficult if I got it off google.

But I HAD NO INTENTION OF DOING THIS. But instead of even verifying that I was going to, or had done it, you just blatantly attacked me over the *possibility* of me doing it.

For your information, the reason I posted this question, with any mention of where I got it from, is I just assumed that it was a challenge lots of other people would enjoy also. And, judging by the sheer number of responses, lots of other people enjoyed writing a solution to it. Generally enabling this many people to write some cool perl for a solution would make me very happy, but in this case I find all my happiness is ruined by your slander.

    My better judgement says I shouldn't reply to this at all but... you appear to be quoting me:

    "just so I could steal peoples work to get a job by cheating"

    I never said that. In fact, I am the one in IRC that gave you the benefit of the doubt when others thought you intended to be unscrupulous. What I was addressing is:
    • You did indeed get the problem from the job ad
    • You did indicate you intended to apply for that position saying that you would use the fact you were a Saint at PerlMonks to your advantage
    • You posted the question here without reference to the first two points
    This all transpired on Freenode's #perl of which I do not log. Should you want to dispute any of this I am sure someone has these logs and it will be easy to determine. I certainly would not have said shame on you for anything if you had just acknowledged this when you posted.

    Cheers - L~R
