in thread What 'should' a professional PERL programmer know?

BrowserUK, your bitter personal animosity towards me (and studious unwillingness to take downvote-responsibility for any such commentary), simply gets in the way of this and many other threads.   Enough is enough.   Quit peeing in the PerlMonks Pool.   (All of you ...   Please.)

Here, we have a young up-and-coming professional, applying for his second or third job, who wants to hear about the expectations of our industry ... and especially to see the perspectives of the other side of The Desk.   That’s the topic, not your personal opinion of (and personal hatred of) any particular Monk who is offering an opinion.   If that person has, indeed, hired people and fired them, then the OP wants to hear from those people.   Not to hear someone Monk vilifying another Monk’s opinion.   Stick to the topic, please.   Elementary internet-forum courtesy is not too much to ask.

The OP wants to hear as many opinions as s/he can get.   And, so do I.   So would many people, for many years to come.   (They don’t want to hear Yet Another PerlMonks Pissing-Party.™)   It isn’t easy to hire the right person; much harder to get rid of the wrong one.   And, when interviewing, it’s hard to take the temperature of the group that you might be joining.   A very worthy topic.

“So, you think my opinions are garbage?”   Marvelous ... what’s yours?   What sort of organization do you work for, what hiring committees have you sat on, what were the directives given to that committee, and what did you do?   What was (of course mentioning no names ...) the best and the worst outcome that came from it, and why?   It could be a very interesting thread.   I want to read that thread, please, and I don’t want to do all or even much of the talking.

    BrowserUK, your bitter personal animosity towards me (and studious unwillingness to take downvote-responsibility for any such commentary),

    Once again. It wasn't me. (Ask tye, I'm sure he'll confirm that!)

    Feel free to downvote me as much as you want. That is the point of the voting system.

      (Off-topic, but if I may say ...)   I rarely, if ever, find occasion to speak negatively of the content of your posts ... and, when I do, I don’t.   I will not use the voting system to “vent my spleen.”   In fact, since I basically disagree with the notion of “down”-voting at all, I do not have almost never used it with regards to any post or person.   Nor will I start.

        I ... almost never used it with regards to any post or person. Nor will I start.

        Your choice.

        But it begs the question* as to why you complain when you think I am depriving you of the opportunity to do so.

        Which, BTW, is just another reason for me to downvote you.

        Which is my default stance with your posts, unless the subject matter is something: a) I know nothing about; and b) the content seems plausible. And it will remain so until you post some perl code that: a) compiles (clean); b) runs; c) solves an OPs non-trivial problem. Something that, in 7 years & 3500 posts, you have yet to do, despite that you present yourself as some kind of programming guru.

        Also, why, given my clear history of telling it like it is -- especially with regard to yourself -- do you continue to assume that I would suddenly shy away from doing so under my own handle?

        (*Yes. I know, purist, linguists would proscribe this usage; but living in the past is their bag, not mine.)

    I just stumbled over worst nodes where you are completely dominating with 50% of all entries!

    I have to say that's really not fair, you should also give others the chance to gain merits for spreading dangerous nonsense.
