I've never worked with chromatic, nor any one else here. I do know the personalities. I know tye's and chromatic's dry humour. I know of jZed's ways. Hey orby!
Have you worked with chromatic? If so, I'm sorry to hear you've had such a bad time w/ him. I doubt you have though w/ the blanket statement you made, "You and your alikes."
Reminds me back in a position of mine. My cow-orkers and I were chatting about programming, and somehow perl came up. Accused me of not being able to produce a lick of anything useful in perl. A coworker who I've worked with chimed in. Two things were said. "I'm not a bad worker." and "I trust him to write well organized perl." From everything chromatic has written, I believe him to be of that ilk. Do I agree how he organizes, maybe, maybe not. It'd depend on one of the billion of points he's made at the given time.
I know, I know. No one is bashing perl. Or were they? Bah, who knows. Anywho, unless you have worked with him to any extent, I suggest you not critique his work unless you really get into it. Sure, poke at his personality. Tell him that his name is misspelled, and doesn't have a capital letter. Let him know his punctuation is atrocious. If you've only met him, insult his tie, and his shoes.
But c'mmon, insulting his work without ever seeing it? Heck, I don't agree w/ how some things are written. A lot of your other nodes have come off quite negative towards these people you don't know. Most of us are good people. Sit back and get to know us a bit more before you continue posting.
Disclaimer: I've never met or worked with chromatic or met chromatic. If I do meet him and his tie and shoes are ugly, I'll get a good laugh. I think his name is spelled the way HE wants it to. Don't hurt me. :)
