in thread Don't Write That In Perl!

Obviously you are a nice guy and you reason.

To be totally truthful with everyone, the real issue is not me. I don't bash perl or insult anyone's work, but I am not the first one or the last one to point out the facts and truth: perl's current downward status and perl 6's danger to become vaporware are real.

It is not just here on this forum, it is online everywhere that every time you tell the truth, some perl guy will jump on you and beat you to death. They call you idiot, they call you everything that one can imagine. Oh my god!

Not every perl guy like this though. I am a perl guy myself, although I am also a java guy, a c# guy, a python guy, a lisp guy... You are also a reasonable and nice perl guy!

Perl 6 belongs to everyone as far as I know, not just those perl 6 guys. As a public affair, everyone of the general public has the right and obligation to comment. Although I am fully aware of the consequence of being called all sorts of names.

    Well then. I only have 2 requests.

    I agree, we have a right to critique perl up and down the line. Let's continue to do that. If it gives perspective, ruby has been around for ages, and it started hitting critical mass only 2 years ago? I could imagine perl6 doing the same should the popularity diminish. There are a lot of good ideas there.

    Secondly, unless specifically someone is calling you out, show us all a level of respect. Blanket statements about us and what not, then picking at those who reply, or seek help, puts us on edge. I'm not asking you to pipe down and take abuse from anyone. Just be mindful, we're all not out to get you. :)

    That's all I got for this thread. Peace.
