in reply to Class::DBI mailing list meltdown

Tony isn't the first Perl developer to be upset by the fact that he spent hundreds (probably thousands) of hours developing something useful, gave it away to the community for free, and all he got in return was whiny people demanding he do it their way. I probably would have done the same thing once it got to the point where instead of working on the code I had to spend way too much time dealing with people who just wanted to insult me and disrupt the mailing list.


We're not surrounded, we're in a target-rich environment!

    Some people can be easily offended or intimidated. the moment you put your module on CPAN, is just like the moment you step into the draft office, you should know what might happen to you.
