in thread [OT] Anyone Heard from Tilly

Rather than post based on uninformed opinion, why not search for Tilly's email address (look at his CPAN modules) and discuss the matter with him?

If you think that his employer is evil and stupid, then convince him to quit and the problem is solved. If you can't convince him, then there is probably more to the story than you know and you shouldn't talk about what you are ignorant on.

    Assuming all information posted by tilly is accurate, what more could there possibly be to the story that would negate my point? It seems to be a fairly straightforward point does it not? Discouraging your employees from improving their skills through contributions to open software development is a stupid move.

    So what's the counter-argument? Why would I bother pursuing this further?

    Oh, and I didn't say his employer was 'evil' I actually referred to being silent and ignoring such problems as 'evil.'

      With an attitude like that, there is never any chance that you would find out, is there?

      But my experience is that it is stupid to pass judgement when you have only heard one side of any story, and to date that is all that we have heard.

        Fair enough :). </pointlessThread>
