Says mothra:
Some of the ops have power trips and look for ways to kick people.
That certainly is true. And since the mass exodus from EFnet, many of the more moderate and rational people are gone.

I'm starting to feel like there's too much of this crap going around in -- for some reason mostly Perl -- forums it seems.
While I agree that there is far too much of it going on (and I'm hoping to give a talk about this at TPC this summer) I disagree with you that it is mostly in Perl forums. There are plenty of communities that have worse cases of this disease. Try reading comp.lang.lisp for a couple of weeks. Now there is a newsgroup with big problems.
