I chose to continue to contribute and try to attract more contributors in the face of ill-informed ridicule and attacks.
I stopped contributing because I was tired of people talking about how good things were surely going to be in the very near future and then doing almost nothing to make them happen. You're keeping up a fine and well established tradition here of making big promises based on things people say.
See Perl 6 documentation.
Keep telling yourself that a series of blogs, example mathematical puzzles, and Larry promising that this year for sure he'll write a book (he's been saying that since 2005) are acceptable forms of documentation that people like me want. (They aren't.)
I've always thought adoption will largely take care of itself and will reflect how robust the product is.
Finally, we agree on something.
