in reply to Just curious: is there a BOT that downvotes "me?"

Well, I guess there’s something that the gods can do to get rid of this “irritation” of yours:   delete the account and all 3,944 of those posts that are so awful that they appear to deserve adulterating the Declaration of Independence.

Or, maybe, just ... “get over it.”   :-O   If you want to extemporaneously write code in answer to every post ... if you think that’s the way that it “should” be done, then, go ahead and do that.   If you think that a post is great, give it an “attaboy.”   But, if you don’t agree with what someone said or how they approached the task of providing a meaningful and/or useful response, why not just ... ignore them?   In addition to being most rude and unprofessional, this bickering and backstabbing is highly noticed and is no good for PerlMonks as a site or as a community.   It is interesting what you hear on the Chatterbox on odd hours, and it is likewise interesting the private e-mail I have received.   But, mostly, it’s just an embarrassment.

And this community ... and, this language and its legendary role on the server side ... is starting to get some very serious competition, by the way.   While Monks are sitting around the same table where they’ve been sitting for more than ten years, trying and failing over the course of (what, 7 years or so?) to upgrade the language they know and adore, Perl is beginning to be replaced on the server side by ... JavaScript.   Sometimes machine-generated on both sides from a language very similar to Swift.   Don’t laugh, because I’m not laughing.   Don’t say that it can’t possibly happen because it is happening.   I am right now bidding on a project that would de-commission a very large Perl application that is now being maintained by a contract group that is a little bit too full of itself for the present company management’s taste, and, in their opinion, behind the curve.

    "I guess there’s something that the gods can do to get rid of this “irritation” of yours"

    You replied to yourself again, are you now at irritating yourself?

    "if you don’t agree with what someone said or how they approached the task of providing a meaningful and/or useful response, why not just ... ignore them?"

    For the sake of the uninitiated people reply to you and point out that your posts generally aren't meaningful or useful, quite the opposite in fact, mostly erroneous or just plain gibberish. Again you suggest ignoring responses, and once again you fail to take your own advice.

    The remainder of your post proves again that you don't know what you're talking about.

    I wish you good luck with that bid. It's hard to make a living.

    But if you have such little regard for Perl and the old fogeys who are still farting around with it, here behind the curve (whereas you are up ahead, around the bend), why o why do you insist on posting here, every day, answers that are less helpful, for the novice monks for whom the monastery exists, than no answer at all (poor bastards, it's like being handed a map and not being told it's upside down)?

    Surely you would be of more use to the world if you were to share your insight about the latest and greatest technologies on somewhere like StackExchange, where people want to hear about it? What is your motivation in attempting to befuddle every new monk who enters the Perl monastery?

    (Please don't answer that question. Just go to S:O and bless them with your pearls of wisdom.)

    I say this not to be an ass, but because it really would be something that would benefit you as well as the rest of the world.


    The way forward always starts with a minimal test.

    People would care a whole lot less about your style and whether or not you post code or not if your posts weren't misleading or just plain wrong so often and if you just kept quiet when you don't know what you're talking about.

    People's reaction to you is only normal given your posting history; in fact you are the embarrassment. That will only change if you improve yourself.

    YOU are the one being unprofessional. Where are these mysterious late night Chatterbox users that you allude to? I have yet to see ONE...SINGLE...POST in support of you.

    Get a clue or get out of here.
