Yes, it's great to see the welcoming attitude you so exemplify here.
I'd be happy to introduce you to a real, personal friend of mine who you just insulted. But you are hiding behind the screen of anonymity because even you know that saying crap like is is wrong. You just don't want to admit it.
If you search Twitter with her Perlmonks ID and you'll find her.
I know everyone's temper is running a bit hot, so I'm asking a favor: would you be willing to limit it to just verifying that yes, she is a real person, and yes, she really does exist? I'm sure she'll be happy to respond to a civil tweet, but I hope the search will suffice. She is a good friend and chimed in because, well, that's what friends do.
EDIT: It would be really disappointing to hear that my offer of truth was taken advantage of.
